Antisocial Personality Disorder (ASPD) is characterized by a disregard for or violation of the rights of others. Many of those diagnosed have a history of crime, substance abuse, and legal problems. Impulsive and aggressive behavior is common in these individuals, who often act recklessly without concern for their safety or others. Those with ASPD often have weak emotional bonds with others and manipulate and exploit others. They lack remorse for their actions and often display a superficial charm. Psychotherapy including anger management and, if applicable, addiction counseling, can sometimes be helpful in treating individuals with antisocial personality disorder.
