What does Psychopath mean? Antisocial Personality Disorder - Mental Health Help with Kati Morton

Ever wonder what a "psychopath" really is? Today I explain what that term really means and what people who struggle with this are like. Antisocial personality disorder is a mental health condition in which a person has a long-term pattern of manipulating, exploiting, or violating the rights of others. This behavior is often criminal. Antisocial personality disorder is often referred to as psychopathy or sociopathy in popular culture. However, neither psychopathy nor sociopathy are recognized professional labels used for diagnosis. Symptoms of Antisocial Personality Disorder: Antisocial personality disorder is diagnosed when a person's pattern of antisocial behavior has occurred since age 15 (although only adults 18 years or older can be diagnosed with this disorder) and consists of the majority of these symptoms: Failure to conform to social norms with respect to lawful behaviors as indicated by repeatedly performing acts that are grounds for arrest Deceitfulness, as indicated by repeated lying, use of aliases, or conning others for personal profit or pleasure Impulsivity or failure to plan ahead Irritability and aggressiveness, as indicated by repeated physical fights or assaults Reckless disregard for safety of self or others Consistent irresponsibility, as indicated by repeated failure to sustain consistent work behavior or honor financial obligations Lack of remorse, as indicated by being indifferent to or rationalizing having hurt, mistreated, or stolen from another There should also be evidence of Conduct Disorder in the individual as a child, whether or not it was ever formally diagnosed by a professional. Because personality disorders describe long-standing and enduring patterns of behavior, they are most often diagnosed in adulthood. It is uncommon for them to be diagnosed in childhood or adolescence, because a child or teen is under constant development, personality changes and maturation. According to the DSM-5, antisocial personality disorder cannot be diagnosed in people younger than 18 years old. Antisocial personality disorder is 70 percent more prevalent in males than females. The 12-month prevalence rate of this disorder is between 0.2 and 3.3 percent. Like most personality disorders, antisocial personality disorder typically will decrease in intensity with age, with many people experiencing few of the most extreme symptoms by the time they are in the 40s or 50s. Individuals with Antisocial Personality Disorder frequently lack empathy and tend to be callous, cynical, and contemptuous of the feelings, rights, and sufferings of others. They may have an inflated and arrogant self-appraisal (e.g., feel that ordinary work is beneath them or lack a realistic concern about their current problems or their future) and may be excessively opinionated, self-assured, or cocky. They may display a glib, superficial charm and can be quite voluble and verbally facile (e.g., using technical terms or jargon that might impress someone who is unfamiliar with the topic). Lack of empathy, inflated self-appraisal, and superficial charm are features that have been commonly included in traditional conceptions of psychopathy and may be particularly distinguishing of Antisocial Personality Disorder in prison or forensic settings where criminal, delinquent, or aggressive acts are likely to be nonspecific. These individuals may also be irresponsible and exploitative in their sexual relationships. A personality disorder is an enduring pattern of inner experience and behavior that deviates from the norm of the individual's culture. The pattern is seen in two or more of the following areas: cognition; affect; interpersonal functioning; or impulse control. The enduring pattern is inflexible and pervasive across a broad range of personal and social situations. It typically leads to significant distress or impairment in social, work or other areas of functioning. The pattern is stable and of long duration, and its onset can be traced back to early adulthood or adolescence.

Layla Addow: Love your videos ! Learned a lot !

Kyle Green: Psychopath exists as a word used to define a callous person. Just because it doesn't exist as a bureaucratic diagnosis doesn't make it any less of a real descriptor.

JanineBean: I would love another video on how this disorder happens and how/if it can be treated to not just improve outcomes for other people but the patient themselves

Ingvild Kvakestad: I feel I am The opposite I only care for others it makes me hurt and ignore myself I am working on it

Allie Conzola: I'm so intrigued by this disorder. My main question is-- can people who are diagnosed with Antisocial Personality Disorder have any chance of leading a normal life? Is there any sort of treatment that can be given for this? I'm interested to see what the life of someone diagnosed with APD would look like, other than obvious extreme examples like serial killers or mass murderers.

themadhatter34: My ex "girlfriend"..

Sky 4: A anti social psycho path is someone who says No Thank-you psychiatry not today.

Harley Davidson: I was diagnosed with this in prison. I always knew something was wrong but never truly knew what it was. They say we are unable to love which I think is pure bullshit. I love my kids and would do anything for them. On the other hand I have no problem breaking the laws as long as I plan it out down to every little detail. I've also ridden with an outlaw motorcycle club so I'm sure that helped it worsen as we have our own rules and don't care about normal rules or laws. The one thing that really ticks me off is people saying we are incapable of loving someone. I absolutely love my ex girlfriend and would do anything for her. No I do not look at her as my property. She's helped me so much . She's helped me break away from the mc life. She's helped me feel compassion towards others to a certain degree. She was so good for me and she's the only person I could truly trust and tell anything to. With her gone I see myself slipping back into my old ways and going back to the m/c..

Renee Smith: ...the disorder most of our politicians have?

Brent Thomas Trpp: She caught my interest she is beautiful
She can educate me all day long

berner: You remind me of Drew Barrymore

Donald Grab them by the pussy Trump: I guarantee you that the POTUS has NPD.

jimmy the killer: I never had any clue about aspd until literally tonight, but I straight fit every aspect of the mold, certainly everything you said about people like that is absolutely me. my question is, if I go to a psychiatrist or what have you and I let them know all this and diagnose me, what exactly would that do for me? don't get me wrong, my life is super fucked up in every single aspect you could imagine, and I would like it to be better. basically what I'm trying to understand is what exactly would I have to gain from allowing this, and what potentially could I lose? does that make sense? please respond btw I'm absolutely being honest and I'm not some dipshit youtubber whos only motivation is to appear edgy.

Billy Infanzon: Love your channel

Schechter Arts: An informative video, but the problem with AsPD is that people who have it rarely ever have the desire to manage their symptoms or recover from it (if that's even possible) to begin with. In order to lessen or eliminate a disease, first you must be aware that it's a problem; then you have to want to cure or ameliorate it by changing for the better. It has been my misfortune to have met a few sociopaths in my life so far (one was female, the rest were male). None of them showed any real awareness of their treatment of others being wrong.

Lorielle C: Can you please do more videos about this disorder?

Laura Gadille: Sounds like my ex co worker

Yeah you lose Harry: Just recently got diagnosed with this,Great to know that people think I’ll become a serial killer thanks

Dylan Wonder: Human life doesn’t have any value. I don’t understand. Fucking frustrating

Ryan: Super interesting!
