|The original Hare Psychopathy Checklist Revised (PCL-R) has become the standard assessment measure for forensic and correctional populations. However, many professionals requested a brief instrument that has high validity and high reliability ratings similar to the complete Hare PCL-R. The Hare PCL:SV was not designed to replace the PCL-R, but to offer a tool to screen for the possible presence of psychopathy. The Hare PCL:SV is a 12-item scale based on a subset of PCL-R items that can be completed in civic and forensic settings in under one and a half hours. In civic settings, the PCL:SV can be used in psychiatric evaluations, personnel selection, and community studies. Cutoff scores indicate when to follow up the screener with the complete Hare PCL-R, so it is easy to integrate the two instruments for ultimate accuracy.
The PCL:SV was developed for the MacArthur Violence Risk Assessment Study. For updates on the project, as well as a list of publications related to the Study, please visit the MacArthur Research Network web site.
