Psychopaths may be more likely to assault romantic partners

Psych Central featured research from UBC’s Okanagan campus that found people with higher psychopathic tendencies are more likely to assault their romantic partners.

“While we also found that people with psychopathic tendencies tended to drink more alcohol, the data tells us it is their personality traits more than substance abuse that is associated with violence,” said Zach Walsh, a UBCO psychology professor.
