The Hare Psychopathy Checklist-Revised: 2nd Edition (HARE PCL-R 2nd ed.) assesses psychopathic personality disorders in forensic populations, providing complete coverage of the domain of psychopathic traits and behaviours.
Ratings are made using a structured interview and a review of collateral information. Scoring is based on the degree to which an individual's personality and behaviour match the items in the Rating Booklet.
As in the original version, the HARE PCL-R: 2nd ed. provides a total score. The total score can be interpreted dimensionally in terms of degree of match to the prototypical psychopath, or it can be used categorically to help identify/diagnose psychopaths.
The HARE PCL-R 2nd ed. Interview Guide includes the interview questions recommended to elicit information for the HARE PCL-R 2nd ed..
