Antisocial Personality Disorder
  • Antisocial personality disorder is a kind of
    chronic mental state in which a person's ability
    of thinking, understanding situations and
    relating to others is not functional and
    destructive.People suffering with antisocial
    personality disorder typically have no regard for
    right and wrong and often disregard the rights,
    wishes and feelings of others.Those who are
    suffering from antisocial personality disorder
    are most likely to antagonize, manipulate or
    treat others either very harshly or with callous
    indifference.Sometimes they can violate the
    law, landing in frequent trouble, yet they show
    no guilt or remorse. Typically these symptoms
    make people with antisocial personality disorder
    unable to fulfill their responsibilities related
    to family, work or school.

Causes of Antisocial Personality Disorder
  • Personality can be defined as the combination of
    thoughts, emotions and behaviors that makes
    everyone unique. It's the way people view,
    understand and relate to the outside world, as
    well as how they see themselves. Personality can
    be formed at the time of childhood, shaped
    through an interaction of these factors 
  • Genetics - These inherited tendencies are aspects
    of a person's personality that are passed on by
    parents, like shyness or having a positive
    outlook. This is sometimes called temperament.
  • Environment - This tells about the surroundings a
    person grows up in, events that occurred, and
    relationships with family members and others.
  • There can be a link present between an early
    lack of empathy understanding the perspectives
    and problems of others, including other children
    and later onset of antisocial personality
    disorder. Identifying these personality problems
    early may help improve long-term outcomes.

Symptoms of Antisocial Personality Disorder
  • Some of the signs and symptoms of antisocial
    personality disorder may include 
  • Disregard for right and wrong
  • Persistent lying or deceit to exploit others
  • Sense of superiority and exhibitionism
  • Recurring difficulties with the law
  • Regularly violating the rights of others by the
    use of intimidation, dishonesty and
    misrepresentation
  • Child abuse or neglect
  • Hostility, significant irritability, agitation,
    impulsiveness, aggression or violence

Symptoms of Antisocial Personality Disorder
Continue
  • Deficiency of empathy for others and lack of
    remorse about harming others
  • Unnecessary risk-taking or dangerous behaviors
  • Poor or abusive relationships
  • Irresponsible work behavior
  • Fail to learn from the negative consequences of
    behavior
  • The symptoms of antisocial personality disorder
    may initiate in childhood and are fully evident
    for most people during their 20s and
    30s.However, this disorder is known as a
    lifelong disorder but some symptoms can be
    particularly destructive and criminal behavior
    and the use of alcohol or drugs may decrease over
    time, but it's not known whether this disorder is
    a result of aging or an increased awareness of
    the consequences of antisocial behavior.

Treatment of Antisocial Personality Disorder
  • Antisocial personality disorder is very
    difficult to treat. People with this disorder may
    not even want treatment or think they need it.
    But people suffering with antisocial personality
    disorder need treatment and close follow-up over
    the long term. People suffering with antisocial
    personality disorder may also need treatment for
    other conditions, like depression, anxiety or
    substance use disorders. Doctors with experience
    of treating antisocial personality disorder and
    commonly associated conditions are most likely to
    be helpful.The best treatment of antisocial
    personality disorder relies on each person's
    specific situation and severity of symptoms.
