Course description:

The majority of psychopaths are not serial killers or rapists; they're colleagues, bosses and employees found in workplaces throughout Australia. We'll examine what a psychopath is, their personality style, behaviours, interpersonal approach and thought processes. You'll learn how they infiltrate companies undetected and the strategies they use to manipulate those around them to achieve power and promotion. The four different types of workplace psychopath will be explored, and we'll also look at what companies and individuals can do to minimise damage caused by the psychopath. Warning: this course may include material that may confront some students.
