She talks about the differences between forensic psychiatry and forensic psychology; the rules governing psychiatric confidentiality; the fact that forensic psychiatrists are not lie detectors; the depiction of competency versus sanity in fiction (and which is easier to argue in court); and lines a psychiatrist (at least a reputable one) wouldn't cross.
