The Hare Psychopathy Checklist–Revised: 2nd Edition (HARE PCL-R) assesses psychopathic personality disorders in forensic populations. It provides a systematic evaluation based on strong data and research.
As in the original version, the PCL–R: 2nd Edition provides a total score. The total score can be interpreted dimensionally in terms of degree of match to the prototypical psychopath, or it can be used categorically to help identify/diagnose psychopaths.
Ratings are made using a structured interview and a review of collateral information. Scoring is based on the degree to which an individual's personality and behaviour match the items in the Rating Booklet.
PCL–R: 2nd Edition Rating Booklet
Contains all of the information needed to administer and score the PCL–R. The Rating Booklet provides an easily accessible format to consult the rating criteria for each of the 20 PCL–R items.
PCL–R: 2nd Edition Interview Guide
Includes the interview questions recommended to elicit information for the PCL–R.
PCL–R: 2nd Edition QuikScore Form
A self-scoring form used to record the ratings of the individual on each of the 20 PCL–R items. No separate templates or keys are needed, as the QuikScore Form automatically transfers the rating to a scoring grid. The rating can then easily obtain scores and convert them into T-scores.
