About Antisocial Personality Disorder
Antisocial Personality Disorder is a chronic mental condition in which your girl might display signs of dysfunctional thinking and relating to others, Anti Social Personality Disorder (ASPD), is defined (by the American Psychiatric Association) as “a pervasive pattern of disregard for, and violation of, the rights of others.”
If she treats others with absolute indifference to their feelings, is calculating and insincere, possibly violating the law, and admitting to no feelings of shame, these can all be signs of Antisocial Personality Disorder.
If you are witnessing a reckless disregard for her own (and others) safety, refusal to conform, deceit, rash conduct, bad temper, and a pattern of negligent behavior, New Lifehouse can provide a safe haven as she struggles to overcome this serious problem.
New Lifehouse – How We Can Help Your Girl with Anti Social Personality Disorder
It is vital to have ASPD diagnosed and treated properly, so that your girl doesn’t suffer possible, life-threatening consequences, such as substance abuse, unsafe and reckless behaviors, even repetitious law-breaking which can lead to incarceration. The characteristics are complex for parents to recognize, and there is no definitive treatment for this disorder. However, hope might lie with therapies that show the damaging consequences of inappropriate or illegal behavior.
Studies show reward systems or contingency management systems to be somewhat helpful in driving behavior towards a more satisfactory norm (not to be confused with ordinary, parental attempts at punishment reprimand and reward incentive). While particularly complicated to treat, your girl will need long-term care for ASPD, as well as for any related conditions, such as depression, anxiety or substance abuse.
