Upcoming Programs

Detecting Psychopaths in the Legal and Other Industries

Presented by: Kathy Bazoian Phelps, Diamond McCarthy, LLP

Psychopaths make up 1% to 4% of the population. While serial killers tend to get the most press, the high concentration of psychopaths in leadership positions and businesses is a pervasive problem. Learn about the specific traits of psychopaths and the professions with the highest percentages of psychopaths to best be able to interview and detect psychopaths.  This program will discuss:

  • The tests to recognize psychopathic traits
  • The industries and professions with the highest percentages of psychopaths
  • Comparisons to sociopaths, narcissists, and con artists
  • Trends in the corporate world that may foster this type of disorder
  • Specific interview techniques designed to detect psychopaths
  • What businesses can do to prevent organizational problems from psychopaths
  • The response of society at large to the problem
