The Hare Psychopathy Checklist: Screening Version (HARE PCL:SV) is an abbreviated version of the Hare Psychopathy Checklist–Revised (HARE PCL–R), that takes approximately half the amount of time to administer.
It is an effective screener for psychopathic personality disorders that can be used with general, forensic, or psychiatric populations. This instrument is a cost-effective way to determine whether specific cut off scores warrant administration of the full PCL–R.
