People assume that psychopaths are unsafe murderers who hasten wildly in their free time of their everyday life or burn down houses and do everything so carefree, a majority of that statement is completely false. There are multiple logical explanations for the reasons of the way that they act and why. There are many logical explanations for the reasons and ways of a psychopathic mind. Psychopathy is a chronic mental disorder in which someone will suffer abnormal or impetuous social manner, there are various symptoms that a psychopath may inhold or a person who is on the verge of becoming a psychopath and has the tendencies, in which everyone will vary, especially in children and adults. The symptoms will not be the only thing that varies but the treatment will be different as well, there are different kinds for different people especially when you are diagnosing people who may have other mental disorders. Everyone is very different, and especially the mind or brain of a psychopath.There are multiple types of psychopathic symptoms that vary in every person who is diagnosed as a psychopath. This can vary starting at a very young age of five uo to a matured psychotic person. Multiple people assume that only adults that are perfectly mature and can develop or be diagnosed with psychopathy. “As with any personality disorder, psychopathy has been conceptualized and applied to adults. Among adults, there is an abundant literature demonstrating that psychopathy is associated with both general and violent recidivism,”(Spain 86), meaning that adults are more prone to want to commit a crime or multiple again because the violence is more shown than with a child would present. “Extant research, though not conclusive, suggests that psychopathy might be associated with poor treatment response”(Spain 86), where the treatment that adults are receiving may cause them to be more violent. While children are more different just like the article says, “The same cannot be said about the construct as applied to youth. For conceptual, developmental, and theoretical reasons, the idea of psychopathy among youth is contentious and controversial” (Spain 87) “…youth has not been demonstrated do not necessarily disagree, but submit that studying psychopathic-like features among youth is important as part of the search for precursors to the adult disorder.” (Spain 87) Differing from an adult, there are many misconceptions of a child being diagnosed with psychopathy, such as they cant be treated or diagnosed because of their young age. So, that because they are not fully grown it is hard to discover the real symptoms than the imagination of the child. The people who believe that a child cannot be diagnosed is because children are actually more prone to lie or imaginate many people or things as well. “A number of studies using parent and teacher ratings on the APSD, or antisocial personality disorder, have shown that this measure is able to identify a subgroup of children with elevated levels of aggression and other antisocial behaviors” (Spain 87) , saying that kids do differ from adults when it comes the symptom of aggression. If adults are more attracted to the aggression than a child would, it still would not be realistic for a child to be diagnosed and treated with the proper care than an adult. Some children can be very aggressive and not have any other psychotic symptoms as some may argue but, if a child is showing most of the symptoms such as a lack of empathy and remorse then would it not be possible to diagnose them. Some studies show that if you take psychopathic people and non psychopathic people and you show them a horrific crime scene, the non psychopathic people pupils will be increasingly larger due to the remorse, while the psychopathic peoples’ pupils would remain the same size for they are unable of feeling of no remorse. If the same is done on a child would the results would be very different due to their minds and body still in process of growing. The adults and children especially differ in the entire medication spectrum.Many psychopathic people have the symptoms of lacking empathy as well as lacking love, fear, and remorse or guilt. The most common and dangerous symptom is guilt, “Psychopathic traits were negatively related to FER ability for all expressions, and to guilt-proneness. FER ability did not significantly mediate the relationship between psychopathic traits and guilt-proneness. However… indirect effects found for the fearful and angry expressions. psychopathic traits were found to partially mediate the relationship between FER and guilt-proneness for all expressions other than happiness.”(Chakhsiya 663) but, another psychopathic symptom is the rewards from the outcome is what they strive and beg for which may result in psychopathic people having a severe personality disorder which can lead to new studies in the future for many educated scientists. Every psychopathic person needs to be diagnosed with the antisocial personality disorder in order to really be diagnosed with being a psychopath. Antisocial personality disorder is a disorder in a pervasive pattern of disregard for, violation of, the rights of others in which it will begin in childhood or early adolescence and will continue into adulthood. Since children can be diagnosed with antisocial personality disorder then they are able to have the same lack of empathy or remorse as an adult would. Children and adults are very different due to the mind and body that they both carry, but unfortunately the medication or treatment will not result in the same category. The treatment, or medication of psychopathic people will vary, “Moreover, many forensic mental health professionals believe that psychopaths are not amenable to treatment.”(Prado 664), saying that being a psychopathic person may not always be treatable. “TBS is a mandatory treatment order imposed on offenders who have committed serious offences, carrying a punishment of at least 4 years imprisonment, and who suffer from a mental disorder. The TBS-order is prolonged as long as the court deems the patient a danger to society.” (Chakhsiya 336) Some people can consider TBS as being an imprisonment therapy session, which a lot of the relatives believe is not the way to be treated. TBS is a very controversial subject because not everyone is able to present all the symptoms such as wanting to commit a crime, and not every psychopathic person is the same. Stereotyping is one of the most common drastic mistakes a doctor or scientist can make when it comes to an physical or mental illness. There is another treatment called dRW, “all patients reside in 10–12 beds high security wards where they are offered a supportive milieu by psychiatric nurses… work- and educational programs, individual and/or group psychotherapy by psychologists… where indicated, and support in maintaining and building constructive social networks by social workers.” (Chakhsiya 336) If this is the case for some psychopathic people, then it would not be effective therapy, or treatment, for some of them. This can also be controversial because as Miller and Rollnick stated they are supposed to be receiving a social environment to help them learn and receive the social time that they need, but cannot be considered a real milieu. If they are going through work, education, and maintaining constructive social networks in one whole environment then are they actually getting the experience of the realm world or just simply what the doctors and nurses want them to feel as the real world. If doctors and nurses put a limit to the world for their patients they cannot fully understand others reasoning for their actions or why things are the way they are unless they are simply being educated about it. Everyone is different, nobody is the same but everyone can also be a lot alike. Everyone on earth has much different learning skills especially psychopathic people due to their mindset. How well will these people learn and understand the world that we live in if all they do is talk about it and staying inexperienced. The treatments that these doctors are using can be highly ineffective because of the differences all of us humans have. Well, as Prado said psychopathic people are usually left untreated, and if they are treated it is fairly uneffective. Now that it has been seen and skilled the various psychopathic nation, their traits, and the treatment that many scientist and doctors have been working on society can get a positive optic of how different the people with this illness not only differs from us but from each other as well due to the many variations of reasons on which one of them can be a very strong or weakened lack of empathy or remorse. Such as there being various symptoms that a psychopath may confine, in which everyone will vary especially in children and adults. The symptoms will not be the only thing that varies but the treatment will be different as well from a range of treating their social techniques and the educational and society style that they are placed in to just having them be in a prison like state where the doctors try to just make them better in hopes they are fine and undangerous to the world again. What symptoms and tendencies these psychotic people have the more different the treatment may be, or from the doctor that they are seeing. There are dissimilar kinds of medicinal treatment and symptoms, for dissimilar people, and their dissimilar minds.
