Welcome to SSSP!

The Society for the Scientific Study of Psychopathy (SSSP) is a non-profit, professional organization aiming to promote the conduct and communication of scientific research in the field of psychopathic personality (psychopathy) and to encourage education and training in those fields of science that contribute to research in psychopathy. The members of SSSP are actively engaged in trying to better understand the characteristics and causes of psychopathy, as well as better ways of detecting it, treating it, and ultimately preventing its destructive manifestations. Our organization is dedicated to the science of psychopathy. Nevertheless, we welcome not only established investigators, but also students, clinicians, educators, science journalists, attorneys, and others who are interested in learning more about research on this still poorly understood condition.
