The HARE Psychopathy Checklist: Youth Version (HARE PCL:YV) helps identify potential patterns of cheating, fighting, bullying, and other antisocial acts in youths. Early identification of these traits is critical, not only for the near future of these individuals, but for their development into adulthood.
The HARE PCL:YV can be used to help you understand the factors that contribute to the development of adult antisocial behaviour and psychopathy.
Adapted from the HARE Psychopathy Checklist-Revised (HARE PCL-R), the most widely used measure of psychopathy in adults, the HARE PCL:YV uses an expert-rater format that emphasises the need for multidomain and multisource information.
The HARE PCL:YV Interview Guide outlines questions for the structured interview. It was developed to assist in the conduction of a semi-structured interview to elicit information needed to make the PCL:YV ratings.
