Psychopathy: Controversies and challenges regarding an important forensic construct.

Psychopathy has been described as “a construct whose time has come” yet it remains a controversial construct. There are many challenges in assessing this disorder that has importance for the treatment and management of individuals in prison and forensic settings. I will discuss the evolution of the construct, discuss a number of controversies and conclude by describing a new model ― The Comprehensive Assessment of Psychopathic Personality.

 

Workshop:  Wednesday January 29th at 10:15 – 14:00
Location: Christiesgate 12, ground floor, room 118
Introduction to the Comprehensive Assessment of Psychopathic Personality.

The Comprehensive Assessment of Psychopathic Personality (CAPP) is a conceptual map of psychopathy developed by David Cooke, Stephen Hart, Caroline Logan and Christine Michie. Much of the early conceptual work was done in Bergen. This workshop will explain the development of the CAPP, and through the use of videotaped examples, the core features of the disorder will be examined. Opportunities will be provided to discuss the relevance of psychopathic traits to risk formulation.

Members of the Graduate school of Clinical and Developmental Psychology (CDP) will earn credits equivalent for 2 internal seminars and must register their participation with solveig.apelthun@psysp.uib.no

The guest lecture and workshop is open for all and participation does not require registration.

Welcome!
