1. Lee, Zina., Salekin, Randall. and Leistico, Anne-Marie. "Adolescent Psychopathic Traits: Is There Evidence for Primary and Secondary Subtypes?" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the American Psychology - Law Society, TBA, San Antonio, TX, <Not Available>. 2019-08-17 <>
Publication Type: Symposium Paper
Abstract: Although there is evidence for adult primary and secondary psychopaths, few studies have examined these subtypes in adolescents. The current study applied model-based cluster analysis to psychopathic traits and anxiety in adolescent offenders (n = 143; 66% male 34% female). Clustering methods were applied separately for an interview- and file-based measure (Psychopathy Checklist: Youth Version; Forth, Kosson, & Hare, 2003), and a self-report measure for assessing juvenile psychopathy (Antisocial Process Screening Device (APSD); Caputo, Frick, & Brodsky, 1999). Across both methods, three clusters were identified that differed with respect to personality and ratersÂ’ judgments of risk for dangerousness. Implications regarding potential developmental differences in psychopathy subtypes are discussed.
