A Case Study of Three Adolescent Girls Who Manifested Behavior of the Psychopathic Nature and Who Were Under the Jurisdiction of the Westchester County Children's Court
During a student field work placement in the Mount Vernon, New York, office of the Westchester County Children’s Court, the writer had the opportunity of working with a young girl who had been diagnosed psychopathic personality. The problems presented by this girl were numerous and although many attempts were made by the court over a period of three years to resolve these difficulties, no definite improve was effected in her attitudes. The writer became very much aware of the impulsive, uncontrollable behavior of this type of individual and the difficulties involved in attempting to treat her. The lack of adequate facilities for treating the psychopathic personality was extremely evident in the many unsuccessful referrals that were made in the case of this child.
