How Do Psychopaths Get Into Positions of Power?

Power positions are all around us, from police officers like Drew Peterson, in the military, to elected government officials and white collar executives and those sitting in the board rooms of powerful corporations. Often these people are not quite what they seem, wearing a mask for the public to see, yet something totally different on the inside. They portray themselves to the public as having empathy, charm, and charisma, but their controlling ways and harmful thoughts are just below the surface.

Down through history we’ve seen many examples of the manifestation of their evils, some very blatant, but many continue to wield their power quietly under the radar. So, what makes them tick and how do they get into these positions of power? Why are we not seeing the red flags and warning signs before putting our trust in those who will ultimately destroy?

Back to Drew Peterson, recently convicted for the murder of third wife Kathleen Savio, and whose fourth wife, Stacy Peterson, has been missing for five years, they have no problem moving from one relationship to another, escalating their destructive ways and leaving chaos, and sometimes murder, in their paths. As a result of this case, Susan Murphy Milano developed the Evidentiary Abuse Affidavit, allowing victims of abuse to circumvent most hearsay laws and record a testimonial affidavit in the event something bad happens to them. While we will not see this happen on a widespread level, we can help those caught under the thumb of a power hungry and controlling partner to safely escape their pathological love relationships.

Jennifer Young, a therapist and client coach at The Institute for Relational Harm Reduction will discuss the enigma of white collar psychopathy and how so many reach powerful positions undetected.

She holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology from the University of South Florida and a Master’s Degree in Clinical Counseling from Troy University-Tampa Bay. Her focus of study has been trauma and gentle healing techniques with a focus on women’s issues and disengagement from pathological love relationships.

In 2009 Jennifer began her private practice and that same year took a position as a coach for the Institute for Relational Harm Reduction and Public Pathology Education. Jennifer spent three months training daily with Institute Founder, Sandra L. Brown, on the concepts related to pathological love relationships and the model of care developed by The Institute.

  1. Great to see this topic discussed on a radio show. It’s very important. There is actually a field known as ponerology dedicated to studying issues such as this. I hope more media will focus on this question of empathy-reducing disorders and positions of power.
