Pagination or Media Count:
Matched groups of sociopaths and schizophrenics were compared in a military psychiatric hospital. Striking differences in patterns of family interaction in the two groups were discovered. The parents of schizophrenics showed an intense involvement with their sons, characterized by pseudo-concern or pathological concern. The parents of sociopaths showed conspicuous disinterest, characterized by unconcern or rejection. The parents of schizophrenics wrote more, visited more, and traveled greater distances than did parents of sociopaths.
