Hare Psychopathy Checklist:
Screening Version

Stephen D. Hart, Ph.D.

Robert D. Hare, Ph.D.


The Hare Psychopathy Checklist: Screening Version (PCL:SV) is an abbreviated and highly correlated version of the Hare Psychopathy Checklist–Revised (PCL–R), that takes approximately half the amount of time to administer. It is an effective screener for psychopathic personality disorders that can be used with general, forensic, or psychiatric populations. This instrument is a cost-effective way to determine whether specific cut off scores warrant administration of the full PCL–R. The PCL:SV Technical Manual supplements the Hare PCL–R Technical Manual and is an effective screener for psychopathic disorders.
