What Happens to the Siblings of Psychopaths?

So what is the root of the problem? According to researchers P.J. Frick and S.F. White, http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/18221345 callous-unemotional character (CU) in a child can be a precursor to psychopathy, a condition characterized by lack of conscience. The traits of CU include

  • Lack of empathy and fear
  • Poor recognition of fear or distress in others
  • Reduced reactivity to challenging events
  • Over-focus on reward and insensitivity to punishment.
  • Diminished guilt following negative actions
