Those with anti-social personality, or ASP, are prone to having serious social challenges that deeply effect their quality of life. They often have a low tolerance for frustration, are impulsive, and rarely form trusting relationships. What's more is that people with ASP frequently lack the motivation to improve, blame others for their misfortunes, and are notoriously poor self-observers. Because of this, only the most experienced and qualified therapists specialize in anti-social personality disorder. Often using a combination of cognitive therapy, medication, and family counseling, psychotherapy for those suffering from ASP typically focuses on helping the client recognize the nature and consequences of the disorder in order to motivate them to control their behavior.
If anti-social personality disorder goes untreated for an extended period of time, the chances of legal consequences are extreme. Therapists help to show the client any consequences his or her behavior tends to bring in order to help them live a calmer lifestyle and to minimize the social impact that their behavior causes. Furthermore, since these individuals frequently have poor insight into their condition and may very well deny their symptoms, inviting family members into the process can benefit the individual by helping them understand the negative impact their disorder has on others. To avoid severe and persistent cases that require incarceration, consider hiring an anti-social personality therapist as soon as possible.
