In the Shadow of Feeling [electronic resource]

Without remorse or empathy, psychopaths control, even kill, others for personal profit. But every psychopath starts out as a child. Using interviews with forensic psychologists, child psychiatrists, and a 17-year-old named Jonathan who is serving a sentence for first-degree murder, this powerful film elucidates the factors that can transform children into psychopaths. Dr. Elliott Barker, founder of the Canadian Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children, discusses both primary and ancillary causes of psychopathy, such as the effects of daycare and a society premised on consumerism.
