Serial Killers – Views on Why Sadipaths Kill, the Death Penalty, and Rehabilitation

Research Article of American Journal of Law and Legal Studies Serial Killers - Views on Why Sadipaths Kill, the Death Penalty, and Rehabilitation Raqota Berger Center for Criminal and Psychological Studies, Los Angeles, California Serial killers are among the most brutal, callous, and coldhearted criminal offenders. This is particularly true for sadipathic killers, that have no remorse for their acts and no empathy for their victims. This study analyzed statistical data collected from 220 people willing to share their thoughts and beliefs about serial murderers, why they repeatedly kill, whether they can be effectively treated and rehabilitated, and whether or not they should receive the death penalty. The findings revealed that most respondents believe that serial murder is connected to mental illness (82%), childhood abuse (81%), sadistic personality (75%), and anger (69%). The majority of respondents do not believe that serial killers can be treated or rehabilitated (79%). The majority of the participants also stated that serial killers should receive the death penalty (62%). Almost 8 out 10 respondents believe that serial murder is associated with a sadistic personality. Respondents 40 years of age and older (90%) were palpably more likely to believe that serial killers should receive the death penalty. With the exception of multiracial respondents, all ethnic groups leaned in the direction that serial killers should receive the death penalty. This study brings forth additional findings and insights into serial murder and sadipathy that may be of value to professionals working across academic, mental health, and legal settings. Keywords: serial murder, serial killer, sadipathy, death penalty, rehabilitation, mental illness ...

Reflections on Social Psychology while reading Hannah Arendt

Review Article of International Journal of Psychological Research and Reviews Reflections on Social Psychology while reading Hannah Arendt Richard E. Morehouse, Ph.D. Emeritus Professor, Psychology, Viterbo University Two recent articles in the American Psychologist (Vol 74, no. 7, 2019) on the Stanford Prison Experiment induced me to re-read Hannah Arendt’s The Human Condition (1958), On Totalitarianism (1973). and Eichmann in Jerusalem (Arendt and Kroh, 1964). This re-reading and reflection deepened my understanding of the value and role of social psychology and Arendt’s deep understanding of human speech and action as it relates to the Human Sciences and understanding our role in the social and political world. The review includes an experiment by Arthur Asch on “Opinion and social pressure” published in 1955 and then looks at Stanley Milgram’s experiment on obedience published in 1963. The review of these articles provides a context for looking at Philip Zimbardo’s Sanford Prison Experiment (1973) and a critique of that experiment which led to my re-reading Hannah Arendt. This article continues an exploration of my efforts (Morehouse, 2012; Morehouse, 2015; Morehouse et al, 2019) at integrating some elements of psychology and philosophy with the goal of deepening understanding of contemporary issues. Keywords: Reflections, Social Psychology, Hannah Arendt ...

A Comprehensive Review of Clinical Pharmacists in Chronic Care Management

Review Article of International Journal of Hospital Pharmacy A Comprehensive Review of Clinical Pharmacists in Chronic Care Management Abdul Kader Mohiuddin Dr. M. Nasirullah Memorial Trust, Tejgaon, Dhaka Pharmacy practice has changed substantially in recent years. The professionals have the opportunity to contribute directly to patient care in order to reduce morbimortality related to medication use, promoting health and preventing diseases. Healthcare organizations worldwide are under substantial pressure from increasing patient demand. Unfortunately, a cure is not always possible particularly in this era of chronic diseases, and the role of physicians has become limited to controlling and palliating symptoms. The increasing population of patients with long-term conditions are associated with high levels of morbidity, healthcare costs and GP workloads. Clinical pharmacy took over an aspect of medical care that had been partially abandoned by physicians. Overburdened by patient loads and the explosion of new drugs, physicians turned to pharmacists more and more for drug information, especially within institutional settings. Once relegated to counting and pouring, pharmacists headed institutional reviews of drug utilization and served as consultants to all types of health-care facilities. In addition, when clinical pharmacists are active members of the care team, they enhance efficiency by: Providing critical input on medication use and dosing. Working with patients to solve problems with their medications and improve adherence. Keywords: Chronic care; pharmacy intervention; diabetes care; CVD prevention; inflammatory bowel disease ...

Impact of Workplace Bullying Amongst First Responders- Systematic Review

Review Article of International Journal of Psychological Research and Reviews Impact of Workplace Bullying Amongst First Responders- Systematic Review Walker, JM. and Stones, A. North Central University The phenomenon of workplace bullying is pervasive and exposure to bullying leads to long-term, systemic and individual negative impacts to targets of bullying and the organizations in which they work. Multiple studies confirm that workplace bullying is associated with psychological trauma and serious negative long-term outcomes for targets including mental health disorders and in extreme cases suicide. Emergency service organizations by design are hierarchical in nature, creating power structures that can lead to increased potential for bullying. The literature shows that first responders who work in emergency service organizations report rates of workplace bullying at upwards of 60% (six times the National average). The prevalence of workplace bullying amongst first responders, given their already high stress jobs, along with the long term negative impacts to a targets health, mental health and wellbeing are significant and constitute a serious crisis within the emergency services community.
