Product Details

Based on more than 10 years of extensive research, the Hare PCL-R assessment has become one of the leading instruments internationally for the assessment of psychopathy. Now, this classic tool has been revised, providing even greater clinical utility through the addition of four new subscores.

The test enables the clinician to determine an individual's PCL-R ratings on the basis of a semistructured interview and a review of collateral information. The assessment yields a dimensional total score, which can be used to help assess the degree to which an individual matches the prototypical psychopath or to help identify and diagnose psychopaths. Like the original test, the PCL-R: 2nd Edition also includes two primary dimensional factor scores that provide complete coverage of the domain of psychopathic traits and behaviors.

Building on this foundation, the interpretive power of the PCL-R test has been enriched in the 2nd Edition through the addition of two empirically derived and validated facets for each of the two primary factors. The new facet scores help pinpoint specific aspects of psychopathy, further increasing the tests' usefulness as part of the clinician's evaluation.

How to Use This Test

The PCL-R: 2nd Edition assessment can be used in institutional, detention, and community correctional facilities, in forensic psychiatric hospitals, and for pre-trial evaluations to help:

  • Make a diagnosis of psychopathy based on the individual's functioning over time
  • Support offender management decisions
  • Provide solid empirical support for expert testimony
