Psychopathy Assessments

Psychopathy is commonly viewed as a personality disorder defined by a cluster of
interpersonal, affective, lifestyle, and antisocial traits and behaviours, including
grandiosity, egocentricity, deceptiveness, shallow emotions, lack of empathy or remorse, irresponsibility, impulsivity, and a tendency to violate social norms. In our article, we outline standard methods for the assessment of psychopathy, its association with antisocial personality disorder (ASPD), and its implications for clinical and forensic issues, including crime and violence, risk assessment, and treatment options.
