Hare Psychopathy Checklist: Youth Version (PCL:YV)

Product Description

Based on the widely-used PCL-R for assessing adult psychopathy, the PCL:YV helps identify potential patterns of cheating, fighting, bullying and other antisocial acts in adolescents and teenagers.

Early identification of these traits is critical to the development of these individuals as they move into adulthood. Results from the PCL:YV provide a strong basis for interventions and treatment.

Key areas measured:

  • Interpersonal
  • Affective
  • Behaviour
  • Antisocial

How to use this assessment

The PCL:SV is a clinician-rated instrument that uses a structured interview to assess psychopathic traits in youth. The Interview Guide outlines questions for the structured interview. The clinician rates items on a scale of 0 to 2 (Yes, No and Maybe) indicating whether or not the statement is true of the individual. Rating should be made while reviewing the criteria provided in the PCL:YV Rating Booklet or the PCL:YV Technical Manual.

Normative Data

The normative sample for the PCL:YV included 2,438 youth from the North America and the UK. The sample includes institutionalised offenders; offenders on probation, in open custody, or arrested youth referred for outpatient evaluation; conduct-disordered youth; and, youth from the general community.
