Textbook of Antisocial Personality Disorder

Table of
The most current, comprehensive work available to date, the Textbook of Antisocial Personality Disorder is the definitive source of information on this difficult and often poorly understood and underdiagnosed disorder. A group of distinguished international experts, researchers, and clinicians provide their unique perspectives on what has been learned so far about antisocial personality disorder (ASPD) and other forms of antisocial behavior, including childhood conduct disorder, adult antisocial behavior, and psychopathy. Highly useful for both clinicians tasked with caring for these patients and researchers involved in probing its causes and treatments, the book looks at the phenomenology and natural course of ASPD, as well as its neuropathology, neurophysiology, genetic risk factors, epigenetics, and social determinants. The authors also explore some promising directions regarding prevention and treatment. Throughout the book, illustrative case vignettes provide a real-world view of people diagnosed with ASPD, including symptoms, course, and severity. In addition, tables, graphs, and illustrations further define the important points. Urgently needed and written with authority by those at the forefront of this vexing disorder, theTextbook of Antisocial Personality Disorder provides useful information on topics such as * The history and definition of ASPD* Clinical concepts such as epidemiology, comorbidity, symptoms, and course* Suspected causes of the disorderomm* Neurophysiology, neurotransmitters, and neuroimaging of the disease* The relationship of ASPD to psychopathy* Current treatment recommendations Special coverage is included on antisocial women, antisocial children, antisocial sexual offenders, forensic aspects of ASPD, and preventive strategies.
