Abstract

Recent research has indicated that treatment of psychopaths in therapeuticcommunities is problematic in terms of high rates of attrition, low levelsof motivation and increased reconviction. However, there has been little previous research investigating in detail how the behavioural difficulties posed by psychopaths in therapeutic community settings could be systematically monitored in order to assess change. This paper reports on the development of a checklist completed by prison officers designed to measure behaviours associated with a poor adjustment to a prison based therapeutic community. Behaviour checklist scores showed statistically significant correlationswith the Hare Psychopathy Checklist Revised (PCL-R, Hare 1991), particularly with Factor 1 scores measuring interpersonal aspects of psychopathy. Thepotential for developing this method as a type of dynamic assessment for psychopaths undertaking treatment is discussed.
