Improved help for youths with severe conditions of dissocial disorder
Stendi provides high-quality services for juvenile delinquent clients.
Who: Aina Sundt Gullhaugen, PhD, Clinical Specialist in Psychology.
Position in Stendi: In Stendi, Aina has, together with her colleagues, developed and implemented high-quality treatment for severe conditions of dissocial disorder. Adolescents who have committed serious acts of violence, and who are at risk of repeating them, might be included in the program. These individuals typically oppose traditional treatment, and they rarely express the contents of their struggling.
Focus: The recently published Dynamic Model of Psychopathy (DMP; Gullhaugen, Heinze & Chernyahovsky Kornev, 2021) serves as the scientific basis for the newly developed and implemented services.
Relevant for: Researchers, professionals, and individuals with a work-related interest in the subject. Child welfare services.
Aina (Gullhaugen & Sakshaug, 2019) has previously published an article in Journal of Psycholinguistic Research, discussing the often-imperceptible vulnerability and pain of individuals with severe conditions of dissocial personality disorder (psychopathy), which can be identified by studying their communication. The article provides great insight for professionals who seek to increase their understanding of this serious disorder, and how to proceed with treatment.
Aina (Gullhaugen, Heinze & Chernyahovsky Kornev, 2021) has recently published the Dynamic Model of Psychopathy (DMP) in Psychoanalytic Psychology. The DMP is a radically innovative model explaining previously unanswered questions when it comes to psychopathy (what “is” psychopathy, really, and how does it “work”).
Stendi has various ongoing projects related to the DMP (validation; assessment; treatment; courses and training) and would like to collaborate with qualified professionals worldwide.
