Prevalence of Psychopathy in PTSD-Positive Veterans

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



Abstract:

PTSD is an anxiety disorder that is theoretically divergent with Psychopathy. Research has demonstrated that Psychopathy and PTSD may stem from opposite brain dysfunction, respectively hypo and hyper-reactivity in the amygdala (Blair, 2007; Moeller & Hell, 2003). Therefore, individuals diagnosed with PTSD should not meet the criteria for Psychopathy. Contrary to what would be predicted by the amygdala hypothesis, 16.4% (n=11) of the study participants met criteria for psychopathy. Psychopathy ratings demonstrated validity in that participants above “diagnostic” cutoff in psychopathy were significantly more likely categorized as violent offenders, X2 (2, N = 67) = 8.18, p = .017.
