Antisocial Personality Disorder
Unlike many other mental health disorders, Antisocial Personality Disorder usually starts at a young age. It is often associated with criminal behavior as well as drug and alcohol abuse which can have a direct effect on relationships as well as family, work, or school responsibilities.
If you or someone you know is showing signs of antisocial personality disorder, it’s important to get help from a licensed clinical psychologist as soon as possible. At Blair Wellness Group of Beverly Hills, Dr. Blair has extensive education, training, and experience that allows her to effectively treat those struggling with a wide variety of personality disorders.
Symptoms of Antisocial Personality Disorder
Many people who are diagnosed with Antisocial Personality Disorder in adulthood will have shown some signs as a child. The disorder affects both men and women, but there is a much higher prevalence in males. The following is a list of some of the most common symptoms:
- Repeatedly behaving in a manner that shows little regard for right and wrong
- Lack of empathy or concern for others’ thoughts and feelings
- Lying or being deceitful for personal gain
- Aggressive behavior that often includes physical assault
- Impulsive action with no regard to consequences
- Excessive arrogance and self-appraisal
The exact cause of Antisocial Personality Disorder is unknown, however, there are several risk factors that are thought to contribute to its development. For instance, genetics can influence personality and make a person more susceptible to developing a mental health disorder. Environmental factors may also play a part as those who are more prone to personality disorders are more likely to develop them after being triggered by a difficult or traumatic life experience. Some examples of environmental risk factors include a history of childhood abuse, neglect, or unstable and violent family life.
