Conference theme

Psychopathy is a dangerous and severe personality disorder that has been closely associated with poor treatment outcome and recidivistic offending. Leading experts in psychopathy research and treatment will discuss the latest developments in our understanding of the genesis of the disorder, current issues in the assessment and complexity of treatment and management of criminal psychopaths. The meeting will act as a forum for the exchange of ideas and experiences, highlighting effective treatment strategies and programmes and qualitative research.

Each session will allow time for questions and answers to discuss emerging issues.


The conference will highlight the following:

  • Epidemiology of psychopathic disorder

  • Identifying specific defects and manifestations of psychopathy

  • Approaches to the assessment and diagnosis of psychopathy

  • Current traditional methods of psychiatric classifications

  • Research in genetics and the implications and impact of research findings on treatment

Learning Objective
