Conduct disorder in children has been highly linked to the development of antisocial personality disorder in adults.The DSM (Diagnostic and Statistical Manual) suggests, but does not require, a history of conduct disorder when making an antisocial personality diagnosis (1).
When looking at the development and causes of antisocial personality disorder it is important to note the symptoms, characteristics, and circumstance of conduct disorder as well.Biology 202 2002 Third Paper On Serendip Personality disorders are among the most difficult disorders to be diagnosed and treated in psychology.The highly ingrained behaviors of the disorders, the difficulty in differentiating between normalcy and illness, and the patients lack of understanding and excepting their symptoms as abnormal, are all contributing obstacles of the disorder.Personality is shaped by experiences during childhood and adolescence as well as genetics.Therefore, children that develop mental disorders are more likely to develop personality disorders as adults.Many of these children, about 40%, grow up to have antisocial personality disorder (2).
Antisocial personality disorder is a Axis II DSM recognized disorder under the personality disorder category that has earned separation from the acute psychological disorders of Axis I.
This is the most common disorder among the personality disorders: between 2.3%-3.3% of the population is diagnosed some time in their lives, it crosses all ethnicity's, and is five times more commonly diagnosed in males than in females.
Conduct disorder, a childhood behavior disorder described by the DSM, is characterized by chronic misbehavior.
The children and adolescence often participate in serious physical fighting, alcohol and drug abuse, violation of parental and school rules, vandalizing and setting fires, and many other antisocial behaviors.
These children, unless adequately treated, have a 50% rate of becoming involved with drugs and criminal behavior during adolescence.
They also have a 75%-85% rate of being chronically unemployed as adults.
