Signs/Symptoms of ASPD

People with anti-social personality disorders are usually diagnosed with symptoms of:

  • Lack of guilt, empathy and remorse

  • Persistent manipulation of the truth

  • Manipulate others to feel a certain way

  • Minimal behavior control

Why do people have aspd

Why do people have ASPD

  • A theory of why people have ASPD could be caused by the mother using drugs such as smoking which could have an affect on the unborn baby

  • People’s childhood/home environment can contribute to the development of ASPD

  • Children brought up in Foster Care have a higher rate of developing ASPD

  • Many people with ASPD have a type A personality, they do not develop friendship connections to others while they are growing up

  • Some believe ASPD is genetic, therefore if one has the disorder there is a high chance their child will develop it also

  • ASPD is more popular in males than females

Can it be cured

Can it be cured?

  • There is no actual medical treatment but it is possible to benefit through therapy but it is difficult because it is common that someone with ASPD will lie during the therapy session.

  • Although conditions cannot be fully eliminated, symptoms can improve, but it is up to the patient.
