Couldn't find what you looking for?


I’d wish I had a much better topic but unfortunately I need to ask something about my girlfriend. She has been diagnosed with Antisocial Personality Disorder and it look like she has been suffering from it for quite a while. And I guess that explains a lot about her character. Can you tell me something about this condition; I guess I want to know if it is treatable.


Well, there is nothing else for this type of problem but a therapy, which will try to reveal what is the cause of the problem, why does the patient act the way he/she does. There are several therapies that could help here, but honestly, this is something that is not easily dealt with. True cause is not easily established, although some say that biological and genetic factors may have an important role in developing this condition.

Just curious, is your girlfreind a psychopath or sociopath?

What does this matter? The term sociopath is not a valid term according to the DSM IV-TR. If your going to act intelligent, try getting your facts straight first.
Secondly, probably checking spelling might make you more credible.
