Antisocial Personality Disorder

Alternate Names : Psychopathic Personality Disorder, Sociopathic Personality Disorder

Antisocial Personality Disorder | Symptoms & Signs | Diagnosis & Tests | Prevention & Expectations | Treatment & Monitoring

What can be done to prevent the condition?

Because experts are not sure what causes APD, it is not known if there is anything that can be done to prevent the condition.

What are the long-term effects of the condition?

People who have APD usually have long-term problems in relationships with others. A repeated pattern of job and legal problems is often seen.

What are the risks to others?

Because people who have APD are often violent and do not respect others, anyone who comes into contact with them is potentially at risk. Care should be taken to maintain a safe distance.
