  • Psychopathy
    • Factor 1: affective interpersonal component
    • Factor 2: antisocial component
  • Farrington Chapter
    • Cambridge Study: The two factors related differentially to convictions and ASPD criteria
    • Predictors of psychopathy similar to that of ASPD
  • DSM-IV equates psychopathy and ASPD
  • ASPD research has focused on behavioral features
  • Psychopathy research has focused on emotional features
family factors

    • Low verbal IQ
    • High risk-taking
    • Poor concentration or restlessness
    • High impulsivity on psychomotor tests
biopsychosocial interactions and protective factors

  • Multiple risk factors often exist for any individual and have multiplicative interaction effects
  • However sometimes protective effects may offset this

  • Background
    • Childhood CD behaviors are significant predictors of adulthood ASPD
    • However many boys with CD do not develop ASPD
  • Purpose: Determine greater specificity of risk for development of ASPD
  • Hypothesis: Childhood CD is an independent predictor of adult APD in males, but childhood ADHD does not predict later APD when controlling for CD and ODD.
results lahey 2005
Results (Lahey, 2005)
  • Childhood Characteristics predicting adult ASPD
    • Race
    • Total family income
    • Maternal education
    • SES
    • CD Symptoms
    • ODD Symptoms
    • Maternal ASPD, not Paternal
  • Regression analyses
    • CD and low SES
    • Engagement in covert behaviors
  • CD and ADHD did not predict later ASPD
    • Most boys with CD had ADHD
    • However not all boys with ADHD had CD
psychopathy research
Psychopathy Research
  • Consistent finding of lack of emotionality in response to aversive events
    • Startle-elicited blink response
    • Aversive noise blast paradigms
  • Callous and unemotional traits responsible for these findings

ASPD and Psychopathy
  • Most psychopaths would qualify as having ASPD, but not all individuals with ASPD are psychopaths
  • All serial killers would probably qualify as psychopaths, but not all psychopaths are serial killers
