Delving into the murky waters of Psychopaths and Sociopaths
For those working in the mental health field… and others interested in this fascinating area of psychology.
Do you know the difference between a Psychopath and a Sociopath?
One of the most common misconceptions, even in the mental health field, is that they are one and the same…with essentially the same diagnosis.
Unless you are specialised in researching or working in this area, it can be a murky place to delve into. While both share some distinctly similar features, the behavioural patterns and lifestyle choices are often separate and strikingly different.
So what is the difference?? Well, the first clue is in the name of each:
sociopath and psychopath.
