About the book

According to the Sentencing Project, between 1980 and 2017, the number of incarcerated women increased by more than 750%, rising from a total of 26,378 in 1980 to 225,060 in 2017 and the number continues to rise. Dealing with incarcerated women and specifically psychopathic women can be challenging. Understanding Female Offenders: Psychopathy, Criminal Behavior, Assessment, and Treatment provides readers with a better conceptualization of the psychopathic/non-psychopathic female. This includes better ways of interviewing, assessing, and treating these women, and clinical caveats with case examples to assist with clinical applications. This is the only comprehensive resource that provides specific knowledge about female offenders, particularly on female psychopathy and assessment. - Describes the differences between ASPD and psychopathic women and men - Presents PCL-R, Rorschach, and PAI data on female offenders, female psychopaths, and female sex offenders - Reviews the current literature on female psychopathy studies - Provides in-depth female offender case studies - Discusses common biases in diagnosing, treating, and assessing in forensic settings with female offenders
