Prison Clinicians' Perceptions of Antisocial Personality Disorder as a Formal Diagnosis.
Stevens, Gail Flint
Journal of Offender Rehabilitation, v20 n3-4 p159-85 1994
Surveyed and interviewed 53 clinicians who work with prison inmates. Results indicated that clinicians used diagnosis of antisocial personality disorder liberally among inmates and felt majority of inmates could be so diagnosed. Large minority of clinicians went beyond Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders criteria and reported looking for characteristics associated with concept of psychopathy. (Author/NB)
