Psychopathy is a personality disorder comprising both affective and behavioural aspects (e.g. impulsivity, callousness, manipulative, poor behavioural control). Due to this unique combination of characteristics, psychopathy is a risk factor for violent offending and recidivism. This would imply that an effective treatment program for psychopathic offenders is essential. However, the traditional view is that psychopathic individuals cannot be treated, and that the wrong treatment can even make their behaviour worse. This presentation will discuss and evaluate a new treatment program for psychopathic offenders: The Chromis Programme. The program will be outlined, discussed, and evaluated. In addition, recommendations will be made for future research concerning The Chromis Programme.
