WATSA is excited to offer a special monthly meeting in January. Dr. Richard Packard Ph.D. will be discussing "psychopathy".
1. What is psychopathy? The biological, interpersonal, and (anti)social characteristics. Is it a continuous set of features or a discrete condition?
2. How is psychopathy measured? This will include a discussion of the PCL-R as well as the youth version, and other measures, too. Additionally, the advantages and disadvantages of each. What is meant by PCL Factors and Facets?
3. Implications of the measures.
4. Can it be mitigated/treated? What does the treatment literature tell us?
