What is Antisocial Personality Disorder?
Features of antisocial personality disorder can be a lack of conscience or respect for others. People with this disorder often regard others as weak and deserving of being taken advantage of, which then justifies the manipulation to them. It is a misconception that this disorder comes with poor social skills; instead, there is simply no desire to respect social norms.
How can Clear Counselling help?
Seeking support in the form of counselling for antisocial personality disorder would encourage sufferers to experience empathy, listen to their own ideas and emotions, and understand themselves in greater depth. Working with deceitfulness, impulsivity, irritability and aggressiveness can really turn lights on in dark corners. Since this disorder is strongly linked to issues around abuse as a child, working with a counsellor can completely change a person’s self-worth if they feel able to open up. Often, drugs and alcohol can be quite close friends with this disorder, so it is important for counsellors to have the willingness to help explore this world.
