    Essay On Psychopaths

    • 725 Words
    • 3 Pages

    As stated before, there are counter arguments towards the effectiveness of treatment for psychopaths. One belief as to why treatment does not work for psychopaths is stated by the authors of this study, Harris and Rice (Harris & Rice, 2006). “They believe that the reason for their findings is that psychopaths are fundamentally different from other offenders and that there is nothing ‘wrong’ with them in the manner of a deficit or impairment that therapy can ‘fix’. Instead, they exhibit an evolutionary viable life strategy that involves lying, cheating, and manipulating others.” (Harris & Rice, 2006) Also, many agree that no clinical intervention will ever be effective because psychopaths are qualitatively different from other offenders but do not have deficits or impairment in any standard clinical sense (Harris & Rice, 2006). They point out that psychopaths tend to show less clinical improvement, they are less motivated in trying to change their behaviors and they have a higher attrition rate (Greenwood, Ogloff, & Wong, 1990). Another argument is that there is some evidence that traditional group therapy makes psychopaths worse. Group therapy is extremely common in many prisons. However it is extremely important and possible for prison officials to know how to distinguish non-psychopaths from psychopaths so they can assess proper treatment (Hoffman & Kiehl, 2011). Therefore it should not be a huge problem assessing inmates and assigning the proper treatment to each one.…

    Social impacts are the consequences of change in societies and cultures (Basa, 2007) and Social Impact Assessment (SIA) methods are used to study these consequences. The scope of SIA and the methods used have widened considerably in recent decades (Esteves et al. 2012), with SIA developing concepts and tools to assess the social impacts of development projects on people and their livelihoods (Asselin and Parkins, 2009; Tang et al., 2008; Vanclay, 2003, 2006). In the United States, the National…

    Intro: There is much criticism, as well as negative connotations, that currently exist within our society in regards to the juvenile justice system (Pierpoint, 2000; White, 2002), and most critics’ opinions have originated from the plethora of different individuals and agencies whom become involved in a delinquent’s life at any given time once they enter into the juvenile system (Pierpoint, 2000; White, 2002).

    There is more than one side to every story. When tragedy or calamity strikes, it affects people in different ways. Past events, loyalties, and moral viewpoints define how one sees a situation.
