Antisocial (Dissocial) Personality Disorder is a personality disorder characterized by a pervasive pattern of disregard for, or violation of, the rights of others that begins in childhood or early adolescence and continues into adulthood. There may be an impoverished moral sense or conscience and a history of crime, legal problems, impulsive and aggressive behavior.
The American Psychiatric Association's Diagnostic and Statistical Manual (DSM) and the World Health Organization's International Statistical Classification of Diseases and Related Health Problems' (ICD) (F60.2 Dissocial personality disorder.[1]) have similar but not identical criteria. Both have stated that their diagnosis has also been known as psychopathy or sociopathy, though the criteria are different to some other commonly used assessments.[2][3][4][5][6] Antisocial personality disorder falls under the dramatic/erratic cluster of personality disorders.[7]

Antisocial Personality Disorder

...The Antisocial Personality Disorder is (APD) is a serious disease that affects many males and causes a great threat to families, friends, and even complete strangers. Most personality disorders may cause an inconvenience to a person’s family and friends, but usually harm themselves more than others. Antisocial Personality Disorder contrasts from other personality disorders because the defining trait is a predatory attitude toward other people. “They have a chronic indifference to and violation of the rights of one’s fellow human beings. The cause of antisocial personality disorder is unknown. Genetic factors and environmental factors, such as child abuse, and people with an antisocial parent are believed are at an increased risk to the development of this condition. (1) A common tendency of those with APD is criminal actions. These actions can range from stealing of everyday items to rape and/or murder. It is obvious that APD is a serious disorder with serious consequences. Criminologists need to have an understanding of APD as evidenced in the offender. Antisocial Personality Disorder affects less than one percent of females and about three percent of males and usually occurs before age 15. Most of these men are involved in some sort of criminal behavior. One heart-wrenching characteristic of men with this disorder is that they show no remorse for their victims or anyone involved. Those with APD are grandiose, arrogant, callous, superficial, and manipulative. Effectively,...

Antisocial Behaviour

...Antisocial behaviour. It is not only just a very discussed subject but also a very important thing to act against. Have young people become an issue for the society? Why have they become such a huge problem? And can we do anything to solve this problem? Gangs, crime and drop outs is big problems that is somehow linked together. Several young people drop-out of school and instead of being in class and thereby be taking an education they spend their time on the streets. Studies have shown that young people who drop out of school are more likely to turn into criminals. "The proportion of 16 to 17 year-olds not in education, employment or training has increased from 7 per cent in 1997 to 9 per cent in 2007". If the studies are right, it means that there will be more youngsters running around and vandalizing the city. This will of course be an issue for the society. Some of the main reasons why young people commit crime may be financial problems and/or boredom, if they simply need to feel the adrenalin of doing something that they know to a certain extent is wrong. What I do not understand is why they drop out of school. This action will of course affect them the rest of their life because an education is almost always the key to a good future. And with fewer low skilled jobs there is needed more highly skilled young people and this means spending more time in training or education. Youngsters who actually continue in education or training for a while will earn more and be......

Antisocial Personality Disorder

...the question, “What kind of person is capable of taking another person’s life?” A person with Antisocial Personality Disorder (APD) is capable of just that and much more. Common careers of people diagnosed with Antisocial Personality Disorder include, sales, management, and business professionals, as well as con artists. This is not an exhaustive list of careers for the antisocial person, as it is common practice for an antisocial person to be a career criminal, and in the most severe cases a serial killer. APD has been defined by the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM), published by the American Psychiatric Association as a person having, “a pervasive pattern of disregard for and violation of the rights of others” (1994, p.645). The criteria outlined in the DSM-IV notes that APD behavior is indicated by at least 3 of the following characteristics: 1) failure to conform to social norms, 2) deceitfulness, 3) impulsivity, 4) irritability, 5) reckless disregard for safety of self or others, 6) consistent irresponsibility, and 7) lack of remorse (1994, p. 645). It is essential to isolate the cause or causes of antisocial behavior because people with APD account for such a large portion of the criminal population. In The Antisocial Personalities, David Lykken notes, “that these criteria identify more than half of the men we refer to as common criminals” (1995, p.5). There is a......

...Case Analysis: Antisocial Personality Disorder People with antisocial personality disorder (ADP) behave in a manner that disregards another person’s rights. Many of the characteristics of antisocial personality disorder include, reckless behaviors toward oneself and others, aggression, difficulty planning, irritability, and impulsivity (Hansel & Damour, 2009). According to the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, antisocial personality disorder occurs in approximately 3% of males and 1% of females in the population (American Psychological Association, 2012). Additionally, people with antisocial personality disorder are manipulative toward others and initially behave in a charming, romantic, and loving manner (Hansel & Damour, 2009). Oftentimes the terms psychopath and sociopath are associated with people who have antisocial personality disorder because of the similar characteristics and behaviors. For example, lack of deep emotional connection, impulsivity, and continuous violations of social norms are characteristics of ADP and psychopathy (American Psychological Association, 2012). The case of Theodore Bundy provides an analysis of a man who meets the criteria for someone who has antisocial personality disorder. Many people and theorists have been interested in the story behind Theodore Bundy and television producers made movie reenacting Theodore Bundy’s acts of violence against several women. Theodore Bundy’s Background Theodore Bundy was born......

Antisocial Behaviour

...Reasons for Antisocial Behaviour Children with conduct disorders are often victims of abuse or have been exposed to environments where harsh punishments are common. Many of these children grew up with parents whose inconsistent behaviour ranged from excessive leniency to excessive punishment. Such inconsistency can cause a child to not know how to react to a challenging situation, causing him to become angry and lash out when he doesn't get his way. The child of a parent with an antisocial personality disorder may learn through example that aggression and a disregard for the needs of others is normal behaviour. According to research, conduct disorders that develop prior to puberty are more likely to continue into adulthood, while a child who develops antisocial behaviour later, at or after puberty, has a better chance of the behaviour not continuing into adulthood. Many teens develop behavioural issues during puberty, and although they can be severe, most grow out of them. In addition, the longer antisocial behaviour persists, the more difficult it is to change. The worst cases, as seen in adult criminals such as murderers, can usually be traced back to earlier conduct disorders as children. http://www.wisegeek.org/what-is-antisocial-behavior.htm# More reasons for antisocial behaviour Many factors have been identified that contribute to the causes of anti-social behaviour. Four main areas have been identified (Source: Home Office, Research Development & Statistics,......

They are a result of thoughtful and imaginative planning. Anyone building or managing a brand must carefully develop and implement creative brand strategies. To aid in that planning, three tools or models are helpful. Like the famous Russian nesting “matrioshka” dolls, the three models are inter-connected and become larger and increasing in scope: The first model is a component into the second model; the second model, in turn, is a component into the third model. Combined, the three models provide crucial micro and macro perspectives to successful brand building. Specifically, the three models are as follows, to be described in more detail below: 1.

Judaism J, P, D, E

... The Documentary Hypothesis was created by Julius Wellhausen in 1878, and it was used to explain the different groups of people, and ways the Torah was written and edited. There are four different groups within this theory that consist of the J, E, D, and P’s (Coogan, 43). At first it started out with the problem of timing for the different names of God that the J’s and E’s focused on. The J’s were the Yahwist; claiming to the idea that the name Yahweh starts from the begging, in Genesis. The E’s were the Elohist; with the idea that the name Elohim is what starts at the begging of the Torah, and it is not until God reveals His name, Yahweh, to Moses in Exodus that Yahweh becomes the main name for God. After the J’s and E’s there are the D’s and P’s to be considered. The D’s shortened for Deuteronomic focused more on the book of Deuteronomy and its contents. The P’s were the Priestly group focusing more on the ideas and concepts of law, rituals, and other such matters. The four divisions are divided into J, E, D, and P; some having a few similarities, but it is the differences that make them unique. The Yahwist, or the J’s, being one of the oldest groups, have a unique idea of God, giving him anthropomorphic qualities, and focusing on the images and ideas the Torah gives of God having these human like mannerisms; as in the Garden of Eden when he forms the humans, walks with them, and talks to them there is a personal closeness. The J’s also focus more on the area of Judah......

...ANTISOCIAL PERSONALITY DISORDER What is Antisocial Personality Disorder? this disorder was previously known as both psychopathic and Sociopathic personality disorder. Like most personality disorders, there are many aspects that may add to the increase of symptoms.  Because the symptoms are long lasting, the idea that symptoms begin to appear in childhood or at least teenage years is well accepted. Studies have shown that a large proportion of folks with this disorder have noticeable behaviors earlier to age 15.  These behaviors include trouble with authority, legal disagreements, cruelty to animals, fire setting, and a dislike or anger toward authority.  This disorder is identified much more frequently in males. What are the symptoms of antisocial personality? The symptoms of antisocial personality disorder include a long-lasting form of disrespect for the rights of others.  There is a failure to conform to society's customs and expectations that often results in various arrests or legal participation as well as a history of untrustworthiness where the individual attempts to con people or use deception for personal profit.  Recklessness if often present, including angry outbursts, failure to consider consequences of behaviors, irritability, and/or physical assaults. Some claim that a major factor of this disorder is the reduced ability to feel sympathy for other people.  This incapacity to see the hurts, concerns, and other feelings of people often results in a......

...ABSTRACT This study examines previous research of antisocial personality disorder. Both biological and psychological research was examined. This paper will attempt to identify common environmental factors shared among people with antisocial personality disorder. PROBLEM STATEMENT Undoubtedly, the first question asked by many upon the gruesome discovery of a murder victim is, “Who could commit such a heinous crime?” Newspaper journalists, broadcast reporters, and the public alike, have asked the question, “What kind of person is capable of taking another person’s life?” A person with Antisocial Personality Disorder (APD) is capable of just that and much more. Common careers of people diagnosed with Antisocial Personality Disorder include, sales, management, and business professionals, as well as con artists. This is not an exhaustive list of careers for the antisocial person, as it is common practice for an antisocial person to be a career criminal, and in the most severe cases a serial killer.
