Episode 005 - Send Dianne a Private Message - Contact Tabhttps://psychopathinyourlif...
One can form and build their conscience at the age of 3-5 years old and a lack of a conscience is one of the key characteristics of a psychopath. Having no conscience—meaning a lack of regard to right or wrong or the feelings of others—can be a direct result of being raised in a home that did not exemplify love and/or compassion. In Episode 005, Dianne introduces the medical definitions and description for psychopaths and the disorders they tend to fall into to help us gain a better understanding of the condition. She also responds to listeners’ comments, expressing her desire to help others.

3 Key Points:
1. Psychopaths fall into the category of personality disorders.
2. Psychopaths have traits that can be exhibited as a child; having a stable and nurturing environment and counselling for both child and caregiver are great ways to make a change for the better.
3. Victims getting drawn back into a relationship with a psychopath is very common – do not be ashamed if it happens to you.
