Child and adolescent psychopathy by Randall Salekin and John Lochman (2017)

The journal Child and adolescent psychopathy by Randall Salekin and John Lochman (2017) focus on the risks and protective factors of child psychopathy.

Very little research had been done on childhood psychopathy before the 90s, but as it turns out, a child’s upbringing plays a huge role in the development of the disorder.

There is believed to be a time during a child’s developmental process when psychopathic characteristics might be unstable, and therefore more adaptable to treatment.

Salekin and Lochman write about how variables in a child’s life such as having an active social life can determine whether or not they develop a psychopathic personality, and feasible ways to prevent them from growing up to become such callous adults.

Authentic literature can pose great complications when read by non-native speakers.

If you approach this challenge the wrong way, you will not be satisfied with the extent of your understanding.

By using some simple methods, you can both expand your vocabulary and learn how to efficiently read a demanding text.


I am very passionate about the topics Salekin and Lochman’s survey addresses, psychopathic personality disorder really fascinates me.

I believe the core message of the text is that we can decrease the percentage of psychopaths in this world by helping these children and giving them the treatment they need.

I fully agree with the fact that we should do something, however I disagree with Salekin and Lochmans beliefs that nurture is a way more significant part in the development of psychopathy than nature.

I think they make it sound like a credible fact, when it is just a speculation.
