The Transcontinental Disability Choir: Four Ways To Do It Right

I get asked all the time to evaluate some work or another on whether or not it does disability "right". This is a bit of a problem, of course - despite having opinions (a lot of them, according to someone in my thesis course), I haven't always seen the work in question. Also, my tastes don't run mainstream - if I've liked a movie, it probably tanked at the box office, and not because it was arty and pretentious. (I liked Last Action Hero. And Push.

What Is the Difference Between a Psychopath and a Sociopath? Sociopath vs. Psychopath, Differences Between Psychopathic & Sociopathic Personality Disorders. The differences between sociopathy & psychopathy are still debated, however they are primarily differentiated by the origin of the disorder. In general sociopath and psychopath are very often used to describe the same thing. In the mental health sphere the general opinion is that psychopathy is actually much more of an inborn phenomenon whilst sociopathy, which displays clinical presentation alike to psychopathy, is the consequence of environmental stressors.

Clinicians which feel that the syndrome is brought by solely by social forces & early experiences favor the term sociopath; while those that believe that psychological, biological and genetic components too contribute to the development of the condition usually use the name psychopath.
