Web Conversation with Dr. Kasia Uzieblo
Most psychopathy studies focus on understanding the causes of psychopathy or examining whether psychopathic traits predict criminal justice outcomes. Very few studies have directly addressed the impact of people with psychopathic traits on other people. However, Dr. Kasia Uzieblo, Ph.D., is changing that. She is one of the leading researchers on the social impact of psychopathy. Dr. Uzieblo, a Senior Lecturer and researcher at Thomas More University College spoke with Dr. David Kosson about two research studies, focusing on the socially impact of psychopathy. More specifically the two studies examined the impacts that people with psychopathic traits have on their intimate partner and parent-child relationships.
