The HARE Psychopathy Checklist: Screening Version (HARE PCL:SV) is an effective screener for psychopathic personality disorders that can be used with general, forensic, or psychiatric populations. It is an abbreviated and highly correlated version of the HARE Psychopathy Checklist-Revised (HARE PCL-R), that takes approximately half the amount of time to administer.
This instrument is a cost-effective way to determine whether specific cut off scores warrant administration of the full PCL-R. The HARE PCL:SV Technical Manual supplements the HARE PCL-R Technical Manual.
The HARE PCL:SV Interview Guide contains a series of questions that directly link to the areas that need to be assessed to complete the PCL:SV Quikscore Form.
