The use of the PCL‐R in forensic populations with learning disability
The British Journal of Forensic Practice
Article publication date: 1 February 2003
Although the PCL‐R is used widely for assessing forensic populations in general, there has been no published research on the reliability and validity of such assessments with offenders with a learning disability. The problems with applying the PCL‐R with this population are discussed. The results of a pilot study analysing data collected for clinical purposes on a high‐security hospital LD admission ward are described, and recommendations for further development and research are made.
