My 23 year old son was diagnosed with ASPD. I have read that there in no cure. How do we deal with him? My local psychologist says he should be kept separate from the family to prevent him being parasitic. What should we do?
Antisocial personality disorder is a personality disorder. Those affected may lie, break laws, act impulsively and lack regard for their own safety or the safety of others. The ray of hope is that the symptoms may lessen with age. Therefore you should be always hopeful. Psychotherapy, awareness, psychoeducation to the family members, etc. can effectively be applied to the patient as well as the family members. There is no need to keep the patient away from home if the others are educated. Take care.
