controversial, leaving a gulf between those pursuing radically
different approaches to mental illness. This forum will act as a
bridge between those taking a biomedical approach and those
taking a psychodynamic, existential or beahaviourist approach.

InterPsych exists to provide a forum for scholarly and clinical
discussion of all aspects of psychopathy. Individuals doing
research, scholarship, or clinical work within this domain,
broadly construed, are welcome. Faculty, graduate students,
and undergraduate researchers are especially invited.

The motto of InterPsych is 'There is someone wiser than
any of us, and that is all of us.' Our hope is that, at the least,
this forum will be entertaining and informative; at most,
it may be a breeding ground for conceptual and theoretical
innovation , and for establishment of cross-site, inter-
disciplinary, empirical collaboration.
