Abstract:

Antisocial personality disorder is often misunderstood by both professionals and laypeople. Confused with the popular terms, “sociopath” or “psychopath,” someone who suffers from this disorder can be discriminated against within the mental health system, because of the symptoms of their disorder. Because there is usually a pervasive lack of remorse, and many time any feelings at all, they are assumed not to have any real feelings by many professionals. This can lead to difficulties within treatment. Psychotherapy is nearly always the treatment of choice for this disorder; medications may be used to help stabilize mood swings or other concurrent psychiatric concerns. There is no research that supports the use of medications for direct treatment of antisocial personality disorder, though. Psychotherapy As with most personality disorders, individuals with this disorder rarely seek treatment
