Schaumburg’s Robert Eme Publishes Chapter in Psychopathy: Symptoms, Challenges and Current Concepts

Robert Eme, PhD, professor of clinical psychology at the Illinois School of Professional Psychology at Argosy University | Schaumburg recently published a chapter in the book Psychopathy: Symptoms, Challenges and Current Concepts.


The chapter, titled Advances in the Study of Male Psychopathy, reviewed three of most important advances that have been made in the understanding of psychopathy in the past half-century since the landmark 1966 study of Lee Robins. The study had a major influence on the subsequent study of psychopathy, which is arguably the most important construct in the study of violence. The advances occurred in identifying the basic personality traits of psychopathy, its earlier developmental manifestations, and its neural underpinnings. The review concluded with a recommendation that next 50 years of research on psychopathy should have prevention as its paramount focus.
