An examination of the treatment of callous-unemotional traits in children

26 July 2013


The current paper reviews research regarding the presence and treatment of Callous-Unemotional (CU) traits. CU traits identify a distinctly severe and stable subgroup of individuals with psychopathy. In this paper, the construct of psychopathy and CU traits will be examined. Many of the current assessment devices that measure psychopathy and CU traits in children will be evaluated to provide a better description of them. The treatment of affective and behavioral problems in children with CU traits will also be explored.
