Mark Kanzer

Spitz outlines a clinical picture among young children which he believes significant for the later development of psychopathy. Where mothers show rapidly changing and unpredictable emotional attitudes, the establishment of reliable object relationships becomes difficult for the offspring, so that disturbances in identification take place. As a result, the social and motor sectors of personality development reveal abnormalities which are possible precursors of psychopathy.
