This thesis examines the triarchic conceptualisation of psychopathy, mainly through the operationalization of a self-report tool the Trial'chic Psychopathy Measure (TriPM, Patrick, 2010). Following an introduction, chapter two presents a systematic review exploring how self-repOlt measures compare against other well validated measures of psychopathy; Psychopathy Checklist-Revised (PCL-R; Hare, 2003) and the PCL-SV (Halt, Cox & Hare, 1995). The review demonstrates that whilst they have their strengths, selfrepOlt measures need fmther development. Chapter three details a critical review of the TriPM. This explores the reliability, validity and clinical application of the tool. The strengths and limitation are discussed. Chapter four details an empirical research study testing the construct validity of the TriPM in a sample of personality disordered offenders. Analysis revealed significant relationships between the TriPM constructs and other conceptually relevant measures. Chapter five presents a case study detailing the assessment of personality and risk of intimate partner violence in an adult male community offender. A discussion of the work concludes the thesis.
