Mental Health Treatment for Conduct & Antisocial Personality Disorder
No child has perfect behavior all of the time–that’s expected! As children develop, they see how their behaviors impact their relationships and grow empathy for their friends and family. However, if a child struggles with aggressive behaviors and a disregard for others, they may have a behavioral disorder. Consistent disrespectful, manipulative, and reckless behaviors can lead to the diagnosis of a conduct disorder (CD) for children and an antisocial personality disorder (ASPD) for adults. Oftentimes these behaviors can lead adolescents to involvement with the juvenile justice system. These personality disorders often occur alongside other mental health conditions, such as depression or ADHD. Those with ASPD often have a pattern of involvement with jail or prison.
At T.R. Liscombe Family & Behavioral Consultants, LLC, our mental health professionals are experienced in counseling children, teens, and adults with conduct and ASPD disorders.
