Questions About A 9-Year-Old "Psychopath"

Questions About A 9-Year-Old "Psychopath" | School Leadership, Leadership, in General, Tools and Resources, Advice and humor | Scoop.it
This weekend, The New York Times Magazine's powerful cover story, "Can You Call a 9-Year-Old a Psychopath?
Sharrock's insight:

from the article: "We should be slow to diagnose sociopathy, because sometimes it’s just a stand-in for our frustration at not being able to treat somebody."


More than the article's intent, it says plenty about our tendencies to diagnose (as amateurs, not as trained experts). Why do we do this diagnosing? There is a power in labelling. When we label someone and other complex systems, it makes us believe we have dealt with it, dealt with its "problem" or even deemed it unsolvable, as though this is something useful to do. As if labeling is producing a kind of solution! But ultimately, it's a kind of rationalization or an excuse to give up, conserve our energies for "more achievable" goals. It also lets us "off the hook", allowing us to define ourselves in the ways we like to define ourselves consistently.
