Starting from age 15-18, a behavioral pervasive pattern of disregard for the rights of others such as failure to conform to social (lawful) norms resulting to arrest; deceitfulness; impulsivity; irritability and aggressiveness; reckless disregard of safety of self and others; consistent irresponsibility; lack of remorse.
Antisocial personality disorder is a type of chronic mental condition in which a person's ways of thinking, perceiving situations and relating to others are dysfunctional — and destructive. People with antisocial personality disorder typically have no regard for right and wrong and often disregard the rights, wishes and feelings of others, often crossing the line and violating those rights. It usually begins around age 15-18 yrs. and continues into their adult lives.
Individuals with Antisocial Personality Disorder frequently lack empathy and tend to be callous, cynical, and contemptuous of the feelings, rights, and sufferings of others. They may have an inflated and arrogant self-appraisal (e.g., feel that ordinary work is beneath them or lack a realistic concern about their current problems or their future) and may be excessively opinionated and self-assured.
Treatment of antisocial personality disorder typically involves long-term psychotherapy; Dr. Christiansen has experience in treating this kind of personality disorder, call today for to schedule an appointment. (561) 688-8787.
