Dr Ben Cave is the pen name of a practising consultant general and forensic psychiatrist. Over a career spanning almost 35 years, he has worked as a prison psychiatrist, community psychiatrist and as a consultant in medium-, low-secure and general mental health units. He has dealt with the whole range of psychiatric conditions, from personality disorders and schizophrenia to addictions, and continues to make challenging judgement calls on when patients are no longer a risk to themselves or others and can be released back into the community. His first book, What We Fear Most is a thoughtful, revealing, often haunting and always enlightening journey through his life and case files.
