It is concluded that Hare's checklist is both applicable to an English population and internally valid, and that future research may usefully investigate correlates of each of the four psychopathy factors.
Casenote assessment of psychopathy in a high security hospital.
The findings support the application of the PCL-R, when scored using existing file data alone, to a British high security hospital population.
Development and validation of a new scale for the assessment of psychopathy
A review of the construct of psychopathy suggested that procedures for assessing the disorder should take into account its two-facet structure, its chronicity, its association with criminality, and
The Hare Psychopathy Checklist Revised (PCL-R) is becoming increasingly recognized as a valid and reliable method for assessing psychopathy in male forensic populations. Previous research has
Criterion-Related Validity of the Psychopathic Personality Inventory in a Prison Sample
The Psychopathic Personality Inventory (PPI; S. O. Lilienfeld & B. P. Andrews, 1996), a self-report measure of psychopathic personality features, and R. D. Hare's (1991) Psychopathy Checklist-Revised
Validity of Factors of the Psychopathy Checklist—Revised in Female Prisoners
A large female inmate sample was used to examine the patterns of relations between total, factor, and facet scores on the Psychopathy Checklist—Revised and various criterion variables, providing further evidence for the construct validity of the PCL-R two-factor and four-facet models across genders.
The Reliability and Validity of the Psychopathy Checklist–Revised in a Sample of Female Offenders

In a study of interrater diagnostic reliability, 101 psychiatric inpatients were independently interviewed by physicians using a structured interview and diagnostic agreement was found to be high, despite the fact that in most previous investigations diagnoses were not made independently.
The reliability of psychiatric diagnosis.
No observation can be incorporated satisfactorily in a body of knowledge unless its reliability, however defined, is also known. In psychiatry, the concept of reliability has in great measure been
The mask of sanity.
What I regard as the psychopath's lack of insight shows up frequently and very impressively in his apparent assumption that the legal penalties for a crime he has committed do not, or should not, apply to him.
The Misuse of Multiple Regression With Composite Scales Obtained From Factor Scores
Factor scale scores are sometimes used as weights to create composite variables representing the variables included in a factor analysis. If these composite variables are then used to predict some
