Psychological Profile of Psychopathy in Criminal and Non-Criminal Population
Professor Daniel Boduszek will critically reflect on the difficulty of defining psychopathy construct. He will discuss problems with psychopathy measurement, suggest a new model of psychopathy, and provide a psychological profile of psychopathy within prison and general populations. His talk will be based on his professional work experience and research conducted in maximum security prisons.
Dan joined the University of Huddersfield in 2012 where he is now a Professor of Criminal Psychology and Director of the Quantitative Research Methods Training Unit. He has extensive experience of working in forensic settings including maximum security prisons for recidivistic violent offenders. Dan’s current research interests and publications include psychopathy, criminal social identity and criminal thinking styles, mental health in prisons, homicidal behaviour, recidivism and prisonisation, and violence against women and children.
There will be a drinks reception following the lecture.
