This semi-structured interview format offers a time-efficient method for gathering and recording information and scoring the PCL-R, PCL:SV, and PCL:YV.

  • Similar to semi-structured interview schedules used by clinicians-facilitates a rapid accumulation of data. Scoring is complete by the end of the interview.
  • Directly links data to individual items, allowing forensic experts to defend their scoring.
  • Uses a format that is familiar to clinicians. Items are scored consecutively and arranged in an order that allows rapid scoring (related items grouped).
  • Appropriate or clinical, forensic, and research settings.
  • Allows for an easy check of inter-rater reliability of each protocol.
  • Tailored for an individual evaluation.
  • Eliminates the need to purchase multiple forms (use for both PCL-R & PCL:SV).
  • Reduced administration time by a third to a half.
  • When you purchase this schedule can print as many copies as you want for your own use ONLY. Non-transferable.

Developed through use in over 400 PCL-R and PCL:SV evaluations in a major forensic psychiatric hospital, and initially published in Gacono (Ed.), The Clinical and Forensic Assessment of Psychopathy (Lawrence Erlbaum Associates, 2000), the CFIS has been utilized in over a dozen clinical and forensic settings, with good inter-rater agreement and sound validity.
