Presumably, one in 20 people are suffering – in more or less serious way – of psychopathy. Diagnoses are rare, and when we hear about it it is usually in connection with serious crimes that have great resonance and coverage in the media. The majority of cases of psychopathy, however, are not recognized. The people who have the illness are the ones who are causing families, people at work, in clubs, at school or in the neighborhood much suffering.
It is very important that psychopathy is being recognized. Without recognition is an effective approach impossible. But psychopathy imposes special challenges to recognition. The diagnosis can be very difficult. One of the problems is that it has proved difficult to define psychopathy in a clear manner.
Are you a lawyer, do you work in the health sector, are you a personnel consultant or recruiter, teacher or counselor? You will certainly meet people suffering from psychopathy. Recognition can be very difficult. Dealing with it is even more difficult. To recognize psychopathy and to handle it is an essential professional skill, necessary for your customers, employees, students, so that you can assist them with the right advice and help to avoid collision with handy manipulative, destructive people.
