Content By: Azevedo, J., Vieira-Coelho, M., Castelo-Branco, M., Coelho, R., and Figueiredo-Brage, M. (2020). Impulsive and premeditated aggression in male offenders with antisocial personality disorder, PLoS ONE 15 (3), 1-18.  

Course Description: Aggression is a symptom of several psychiatric disorders and can be defined as a physical act towards another. Aggression can prolong imprisonment and can deter therapeutic goals for offenders with Antisocial Personality Disorder (ASPD). ASPD related characteristics may include high levels of impulsivity, psychopathic traits, and a high prevalence of comorbid substance use disorders. Overall, aggression in ASPD patients affects recidivism and presents challenges for legal experts and clinicians. Researchers found that patients with ASPD who exhibited higher psychopathy scores had a lower probability of exhibiting impulsive aggression and a higher probability of exhibiting premeditated aggression.      

 Learning Objectives:

  • Articulate why an exploration of aggression in offenders presenting with ASPD symptomology was necessary in consideration of the introductory information relative to historical studies
  • Identify whether 3 primary concepts (i.e. impulsivity, psychopathy, and substance use disorder) function as aggression predictors for this demographic
  • Analyze the data, the selection of statistical tests discussed in the article, and concomitant resultant conclusions
  • Generalize and apply the results to related challenges encountered by forensic mental health practitioners and legal experts

 Course Outline:

  • Read and understand Impulsive and premeditated aggression in male offenders with antisocial personality disorder
  • Review the Course Description and Learning Objectives
  • Consider the factors related to impulsivity and premeditated aggression in patients with ASPD
  • Work through the post-test questions; answer selections should be derived from the respective article
  • Return to the referenced article for any missed questions and/or to better understand the relationship between ASPD and aggression-types
