Developmental Precursors of Psychopathic Traits in Adolescents

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

The current study investigated whether specific variables in early development (i.e., pregnancy complications, maternal substance use, newborn health, parental discipline, and childhood abuse) are associated with higher levels of psychopathic traits in a sample of 113 young offenders. Results revealed that infections during pregnancy were associated with affective and behavioral psychopathic traits, while maternal tobacco use and stress during pregnancy were associated with the antisocial component of psychopathy. Findings are partially consistent with prior research proposing that psychopathic features are neurologically mediated, but do not support the notion that psychopathic traits are associated with an adverse early rearing environment.
