Dr. Jeremy Sharp Podcast Leave a Comment

Today’s interview was fascinating. I had the pleasure of speaking with Dr. Ted Cunliffe and Dr. Jason Smith, two of the co-authors of the book, Understanding Female Offenders. These guys have spent their careers working with- and studying female offenders and share a wealth of information from their own research and elsewhere. These are just a few topics that we discuss in the interview:

  • A broad overview and definition of psychopathy
  • How psychopathy differs between men & women
  • Considerations when assessing psychopathy in women
  • Specific measures used in assessing psychopathy
