Comprehensive Assessment of Psychopathic Personality

This site provides information on a new assessment of psychopathic personality disorder - the Comprehensive Assessment of Psychopathic Personality (CAPP).

Importantly, the CAPP is an instrument developed primarily for research. It is experimental and currently undergoing validation.

It should be noted that some users think it is appropriate to use the CAPP as a structured professional judgement instrument for assessing psychopathy to be used in addition to standardized, validated measures, or in situations where no such measures exist (e.g. for assessing change).

The CAPP Survey

We are inviting mental health professionals and other people without any mental health experience to take part in a short survey. The survey is looking at how well people can rate themselves and others on different personality characteristics that may be relevant to psychopathic personality disorder (PPD).
