SAN CLEMENTE, Calif., Dec. 20, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- "In Your Right Mind," a weekly behavioral health radio program that features in-depth roundtable discussions of today's behavioral health headlines, aired an impactful new show that explored whether or not some Chief Executive Officers (CEOs) exhibit psychopathic traits. The program aired Sunday, Dec. 18, at 5 p.m. PST on Talk Radio 790 AM KABC in Los Angeles. During the broadcast, "CEOs and Psychopaths," the show's panel discussed the clinical definition of psychopathy, the difference between psychopathy and other personality disorders, and how to handle someone who has psychopathic traits. The show is co-hosted by Program Producer Kristina Kuestner and Dr. Tonmoy Sharma, CEO of Sovereign Health, who provides in-depth medical and clinical expertise.
Sunday's panelists included Craig Neumann, Ph.D., professor in the psychology department at the University of North Texas; Daniel Jones, Ph.D., assistant professor in the department of psychology at the University of Texas at El Paso; and Carl Bruce Gacono, Ph.D., a psychologist in Austin, Texas.
Not all CEOs exhibit psychopathic traits. However, for the CEOs who do display these psychopathic traits, "If they do succeed, if they do get ahead in corporate settings, it's usually because they have some of the callousness necessary to make difficult decisions," says Dr. Jones. "They don't feel sympathy for the people they need to lay off, for the people they need to let go based on interpersonal reasons; business is business. They're complicit enough to get through and negotiate some of the politics and make it self-serving for them. And, they make risks that pay off."
One factor that differentiates Sovereign Health from other treatment providers is its ability to offer separate mental health and addiction/dual diagnosis treatment programs at its facilities. For more information, visit www.sovhealth.com.
