Examination of Antisocial Personality Disorder: Determining Gender Bias on MMPI Psychopathic Deviate and Evaluating Substance Abuse Relapse Rates

About the Scholar: Pioneer Scholar Raaka is from Scotch Plains, New Jersey, where she attended the Academy for Allied Health Sciences

The Research:

Of patients diagnosed with antisocial personality disorder, 75% are men and only 25% are women. Raaka’s paper hypothesizes that this is not because the disorder is rarer in women, but because many women with mild cases of ASPD go undiagnosed. Raaka determines that if further research shows that women are being underdiagnosed, a new diagnostic tool is needed for female patients. Raaka also points to increased rates of substance abuse among ASPD patients, arguing that programs that address substance abuse by ASPD-diagnosed individuals must be put in place in order to examine rates of relapse among these patients.

Project Title

Far far away, behind the word mountains, far from the countries Vokalia and Consonantia, there live the blind texts. Separated they live in Bookmarksgrove right at the coast of the Semantics, a large language ocean. A small river named Duden flows by their place and supplies it with the necessary regelialia. It is a paradisematic country, in which roasted parts of sentences fly into your mouth.
