Date7th - 8th December 2022, 9.30am to 4.30pm (UK time)
This training provides the opportunity to work through some practice cases needed in order to assess for psychopathy using the Hare Psychopathy Checklist (PCL-R, 2nd Edition). The PCL-R stipulates that following initial training in the PCL-R that there must be familiarity with the measure using a minimum of five practice cases, across which there must be acceptable levels of inter-rater reliability achieved before using the PCL-R for psychodiagnostic purposes.
The workshop offers the opportunity to work through five practice cases to meet this requirement. Training will comprise of case material and the scoring of clinical videos. All delegates will be provided with case file information prior to the course and are asked to familiarise themselves with this prior to the event, and to preliminary score these cases pre-course based on provided collateral. There is no time allocated on the course to read through the material – the focus on the training days is on the use of discussion to aid scoring and observation of clinical videos. It is estimated that three days pre-course are required by delegates to read these cases and score. Delegates are asked to provide an email as soon as they book. Once the booking is confirmed the collateral information will be provided by email.
This training is aimed to supplement initial training in the PCL-R and is not seen as a replacement to initial PCL-R training. As such, it is expected that all delegates have successfully attended training on the use, administration and application of the PCL-R (2nd Edition). The training aims to provide an opportunity to work through detailed case studies and to discuss scoring. Specifically it aims to:
- Allow an opportunity to work through detailed case material.
- To apply the PCL-R to a range of clients.
- To discuss scoring and issues of reliability.
