The Influence of Negative Emotional Experiences of Childhood on Criminal Activity in Women with Organic Personality Disorder

Abstract

In order to study the influence of negative emotional experiences of childhood on criminal activity in women with organic personality disorder we investigated group of women, suspected or accused of crimes in criminal cases, who underwent forensic psychiatric examination (n=102) with comparison to group of women, who had not a criminal history (n=50). It is revealed that for women who have committed criminally punishable acts, negative childhood events with many psychogenic and traumatic events are of significant importance. It was revealed that the greatest importance of adverse childhood events with negative emotional experience - abuse, violence (emotional, physical, sexual) in combination with unfavorable social factors of upbringing had a significant pathoplastic and pathokinetic effect on the clinical and dynamic characteristics of the disease and to a certain extent predetermined the formation of criminal activity of this category of persons. They are more likely to have dependence on surfactants. These women were more likely to commit aggressive offenses (murder, grievous bodily harm), while the victim of these crimes was more often a partner (husband, cohabitant).
