Transcript of "Emotional Vampires"

  1. 1. Emotional Vampires<br />Dr. Dorothy McCoy<br />2007<br />
  2. 2. Personality Disorders<br />Personality disorders are patterns of perceiving, reacting, and relating to other people and events that are relatively inflexible and that impair a person's ability to function socially.<br />
  3. 3. Personality Disorders<br />People with a personality disorder are rigid and tend to respond inappropriately to problems, to the point that relationships with family members, friends, and coworkers are affected. These maladaptive responses usually begin in adolescence or early adulthood and do not change over time.<br />
  4. 4. Psychopaths Are Not Insane or Crazy<br />Personality Disorders<br />Cluster B<br /> Are those defined by dramatic, emotional behavior including histrionic , narcissistic, anti-social, and borderline personality disorders<br />
  5. 5. Psychopaths Are Not Our Friends<br />In 2002, psychologist Stephen Porter, interviewed 125 men who were serving time in prison for murder. The 34 men with high scores on a psychopathy test gave him a surprise. Despite many investigators' assumption that psychopathic criminals lack self-control and often act impulsively, most of the psychopathic killers had planned the ruthless, cold-blooded murders that they had committed. <br />
  6. 6. Sociopaths or Anti-Socials<br />Sociopathy refers to criminal attitudes and behaviors viewed as normal in certain groups, such as street gangs. Sociopaths have a sense of right and wrong that is based on the values of their criminal group. <br />
  7. 7. Psychopaths Can Plan<br />One psychopathic offender murdered his ex-girlfriend to stop her from interfering with his new relationship. Another psychopathic inmate arranged and committed the murder of his wife to cash in her life insurance policy. <br />
  8. 8. Sociopaths May Simply React<br />In contrast, a large majority of the non-psychopathic prisoners had killed someone in the heat of the moment or upon reaching an emotional breaking point. <br />
  9. 9. Without a Conscience<br /> One writer called psychopaths “soulless beings”<br /> They can be charming, sexy, intelligent, successful, highly educated, fun, witty and charismatic<br />
  10. 10. Occupations for the Psychopath<br />Minister<br />Physician<br />Law enforcement officer<br />College professor<br />CEO<br />Any career that allows access to victims<br />

  13. 13. Not Nice Folks<br /> Blair's theory fits with previous observations that psychopaths have difficulty learning to avoid punishments, show weak physiological responses to threats, and don't often recognize sadness or fear in others<br /> Neuroscientist R.J.R. Blair of the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH) <br />

  15. 15. It Starts Early<br />Psychologist Paul J. Frick of the University of New Orleans recalls a boy who was recently referred to the mental health clinic where Frick works. The 10-year-old had trapped a cat and killed it by slowly slicing it with a knife. The youngster calmly explained to Frick that he wanted to see how much he could cut the animal before it died. <br />
  16. 16. Thrill Seeking, Sadistic Psychopaths<br />Among psychopaths who kill, a thrill-seeking temperament and sadistic interests form a toxic brew, Porter says. Famous sexual murderers such as Ted Bundy and Albert DeSalvo, who was known as the Boston Strangler, targeted a wide array of victims to fend off boredom, he says. <br />
  17. 17. Picture of a Psycho?<br />
  18. 18.
  19. 19. The First Psychopathic Serial Killer?<br />
  20. 20.
  21. 21. This Is the Face of a Psycho<br />
  22. 22. Do I Know a Psychopath?<br />They are manipulative <br />They lack specific goals <br />They have superficial relations with people <br />They are impulsive <br />They are irresponsible <br />They crave power and prestige <br />They lack empathy <br />They lack remorse <br />
  23. 23. Do I Know a Psychopath?<br />They lie easily <br />They have predatory instincts <br />They are cool under pressure <br />They seek excitement and thrills <br />They take credit for the work of others <br />They fly into rages <br />
  24. 24. They Are Out There!Says Dr. Robert Hare<br />"I don't see any difference between the people I meet in prison and those in business," he added. <br />So should we be running for the hills? <br />You have been warned <br />
  25. 25. Don’t Become a Victim<br />False Pairing<br />Pick up on weaknesses<br />Look your part<br />Watch the boundaries<br />In God we trust, check everyone else through NCIC<br />Calm under pressure<br />Misspeak<br />Show a peek of the real person<br />
