The Association between Childhood Abuse and Dimensions of Psychopathy

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



Abstract:

There has been a historical focus on biological abnormalities and temperamental deficits in the search for causes of psychopathy; however, there is support for the importance of psychosocial risk factors for the development of psychopathy, namely childhood maltreatment. The current study examines the role of specific types of childhood maltreatment (e.g., physical abuse, neglect) in relation to various dimensions of psychopathy in a sample of adult sexual offenders. Results suggest that antisocial deviance, and particularly the criminal behavior dimension of psychopathy, is predicted by a history of physical abuse and neglect. However, childhood abuse did not significantly predict emotional detachment.
