Would you know a psychopath if you saw one?
This week, we’re going inside the minds of psychopaths. There isn’t a way to diagnose someone as a “psychopath,” there’s only a test to determine how many psychopathic traits a person has. It’s not as easy to determine who is or isn’t a psychopath as you might think….
 
Forensic clinical psychologist and Fordham professor Barry Rosenfeld helps clear up the idea of how psychopathy is measured and the potential to treat it. Then, Dr. James Fallon author of The Psychopath Inside talks about his own experience as a borderline psychopath.
