Dr. John Sadler will discuss crime, criminal behavior, and mental illness during a free presentation on October 22 at Lone Star College-Montgomery.
To help unravel the complex relationship between criminal behavior and mental illness, Lone Star College-Montgomery welcomes Dr. John Sadler on Tuesday, October 22, from 12-1 p.m., as part of the Lyceum Speakers Series.
 
The free presentation, which is co-sponsored by the college’s psychology club, will take place in the college’s Recital Hall (Building H, Room 102). A meet-and-greet reception with Sadler will begin at 11:30 a.m. in the same area.
 
Sadler will discuss scientific conceptions of criminality and mental illness, as well as social welfare services involved, public attitudes, and the political constraints in addressing these issues.
 
Throughout his career, Sadler has lectured at the University of Oxford, the Sorbonne in Paris, the University of Heidelberg, and most recently, for the Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Psychiatrists annual meeting in Sydney. His ongoing work in the education of medical students, residents, and practitioners has earned him several teaching awards, including in 2012, when he was one of the first recipients of the University of Texas System Regents’ Teaching Award.
 
Currently, Sadler is a professor of psychiatry and clinical services at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center. He also directs the division of ethics in the department of psychiatry and is the institution-wide director of the program in ethics in science and medicine at UT Southwestern. He maintains a small practice of general psychiatry and involvement with psychiatric professional organizations.
