Textbook of Antisocial Personality Disorder

Contributor
Summary
"In this current, comprehensive, definitive resource of information on antisocial personality disorder (ASPD), two highly recognized authorities bring together contributions from an international group of experts to review the best knowledge available on this daunting area of psychopathology. Through illustrative patient vignettes, readers get a real-world view of persons with ASPD, including symptoms, course, and severity. In addition, tables, graphs, and illustrations serve to further clarify the important concepts. Contributors provide their unique perspectives on important topics such as the history and definition of ASPD; clinical concepts such as epidemiology, comorbidity, symptoms, and course; suspected causes of the disorder; the neurophysiology, neurotransmitters, and neuroimaging of the disease; the relationship of ASPD to psychopathy; and current treatment recommendations. Special topics covered include antisocial women, antisocial children, antisocial sexual offenders, forensic aspects of ASPD, and preventive strategies"--, Provided by publisher
