Dr. Robert Hare

Robert Hare is Emeritus Professor of Psychology, University of British Columbia, where he has taught and conducted research for some 35 years, and President of Darkstone Research Group Ltd., a forensic research and consulting firm. He has devoted most of his academic career to the investigation of psychopathy, its nature, assessment, and implications for mental health and criminal justice.

He is the author of several books, including Without Conscience: The Disturbing World of the Psychopaths Among Us, and more than two hundred chapters and scientific articles on psychopathy. He is the developer of the Psychopathy Checklist-Revised (PCL-R) and a co-author of its derivatives, the Psychopathy Checklist: Screening Version, the Psychopathy Checklist: Youth Version, the Antisocial Process Screening Device, and the P-Scan (for use in law enforcement). He consults with law enforcement, including the FBI and the RCMP, and is a member of the Research Advisory Board of the FBI Child Abduction and Serial Murder Investigative Resources Center (CASMIRC).

Dr. Hare also was a member of the Advisory Panel established by Her Majesty’s Prison Service to develop new programs for the treatment of psychopathic offenders. His current research on psychopathy includes assessment issues, developmental factors, neurobiological correlates, risk for recidivism and violence, the development of new treatment and management strategies for psychopathic offenders. He and Paul Babiak have extended the theory and research on psychopathy to the business and corporate world, with the development of the B-Scan, an instrument used to screen for psychopathic traits and behaviors, and a book, Snakes in Suits: When Psychopaths Go To Work. Dr. Hare lectures widely on psychopathy and on the use and misuse of the PCL-R in the mental health and criminal justice systems.
