N&PP Seminar by Dr. Arielle Baskin-Sommers
March 12, 2020 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Dr. Arielle Baskin-Sommers, PhD, Assistant Professor of Psychology at Yale University presents: “Harnessing Mechanisms to Inform the Management and Treatment of Psychopathy”
Psychopaths have long captured the imagination. The names of famous psychopaths, such as Jeffrey Dahmer and Ted Bundy, evoke a morbid curiosity. The crimes committed by these men are so vicious that it’s impossible to imagine how someone could do such a thing. In this talk, I will present research from psychology and neuroscience that raise questions about whether psychopaths are criminally responsible and provide insights into how to manage these individuals within the criminal justice system.
