Handbook of Psychopathy


With contributions from foremost experts, this authoritative handbook provides a state-of-the-science review of current knowledge on the psychopathic personality.

The coverage includes major theoretical models; conceptual and definitional questions; assessment approaches; and etiological pathways, ranging from family and environmental factors to genes, neurotransmitters, and brain systems. Manifestations of psychopathy in specific populations are addressed, as are links to salient problem behaviors such as aggression, substance abuse, sexual offending, and recidivism.

Aug 14, Gwern rated it liked it. What if your depression is a gift and not suffering? I've never seen anything else quite like it on the market. It also doesn't feel like one person writing about their perception, but more like a team of expert doctors that stick to facts and statistics that they can backup with a whole novel's worth of proof. Today the Handbook stands as an authoritative reference

Clinical and legal issues are also examined in depth. Seamlessly edited, each major thematic section concludes with a summary chapter that integrates the findings presented and highlights key questions for future research.
