Sociopaths: The Con Artists of Family Law

Parents with sociopathic behavior appear to be increasing in family law cases. They are extremely deceptive and sometimes dangerous, as well as lacking empathy and remorse. They may be child abusers or partner abusers, yet they are skilled at misleading professionals and claiming to be victims of abuse. This session will present the fundamental characteristics of sociopaths, using the DSM-5 criteria for antisocial personality disorder. Common dynamics of their cases in family counseling, family mediation and family courts will be discussed. Common patterns of misleading professionals will be analyzed and ways to identify them early will be presented.
