Here is a video on feral children and feral adult humans, and how they differ from humans with early childhood socialization learning. After the video is a lightly edited Summary ..
DISCLAIMER: All references in this blog to an antisocial personality, psychopath, sociopath, cult leader, cult, serial killer or cannibal are completely fictional (unless they are backed up by a news source and the name of a convicted person). If not backed up by a conviction, they are from the clair plane, which has no pertinence whatsoever to the physical plane of reality. Any resemblance of these hypothetical astral stories to actual persons, living or dead, or actual events is purely coincidental.

SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO
Hello, Dear Ones, It’s Alice. I Am of the Stars.
I had a little talking to do today about feral children and feral humans. I wanted to start with a segue (a smooth, uninterrupted transition from one thing to another) … a transition of Unconscious Thought Cloud of the World flow of thought that begins with the word ‘cachet’ (pronounced ka-shey’ or mispronounced ka-shet’ ). It is a French word; If you say something has ‘cachet’, it means something has a certain appeal to it.
!. The Unconscious Segue, or ‘Riff’
Let us say you pick the mispronunciation ka-shet’ for that French word, and you are using ka-shet’ with reference to a type of job that you like; you say: It has a certain ka-shet.
So now I am going to go through this series or flow or current of connections of images and metaphors in the unconscious mind … a series or flow or current that might be termed the ‘unconscious segue’, or, in musical terms, a ‘Riff’ … which is a musical term for a short, lyrical melody.
by Alice B. Clagett
20 November 2015
‘cachet’ (mispronounced ka-shet’ ) …
‘cash it’ …
cash box [a picture of a cash box) …
‘cash it in’ [the idea that you are ready to die] …
‘casket’ [meaning ‘coffin’, which looks like a cash box, only larger]
So what you start with the word ‘cachet’ (mispronounced ka-shet’ ) … in this case applied to a profession … and you have an unconscious segue that ends with the idea of death. And I am going to link that with the notion of feral children and feral humans in the world today.
2. The Truth about Feral Children
Romulus and Remus. A lot of people think that there are no feral children in the world today. And they wonder what it would be like if a child were raised by an animal, as in the story of Romulus and Remus, from ancient Rome … where Romulus and Remus, two children, were raised by a she-wolf. There is that story …
Image: “Romulus and Remus,” by Wenselaus Hollar, after Giulio Romano. Unknown date (author lived 1607-1677), from Wikimedia Commons, public domain
Tarzan the Ape Man. There are also fictional accounts such as that of Tarzan who theoretically was raised by an ape; and how he fell in love with a woman who had come from a human family; and how he tried to adapt to human ways.
But in fact, the people that fictionalize the actuality of feral children do not even have the slightest clue of what takes place in the human psyche when a child is denied the opportunity to bond with its mother, and with the notion of family life.
That is what I am here to talk to you a little bit about, today.
3. Psychology and the Feral Child
In the field of psychology, people are working their way backwards from certain motivational constellations and acting-out behaviors that they see in segments of the population; working their way into an understanding of this type of personality. But they have not connected it, I feel, with the notion of the feral child and the feral human.
Sociopath, Psychopath, Antisocial Personality Disorder. Some of the categories they use are ‘Sociopath,’ ‘Psychopath’, and more recently ‘Antisocial Personality Disorder’.
Serial Killers … Mass Murderers. The subcategory ‘Serial Killer’ is a ramification of Antisocial Personality, and Mass Murderer is another.
Occupations: Con Artist … Dope Peddler … Sex Worker. Some of the occupations that an antisocial personality might choose … because of their constellation of motivating factors, and because of the way that they piece together reality, lacking a certain, very important fundamental of bonding and family life … some of the occupations they might choose are con artist (‘confidence man’), dope peddler, or sex worker, for instance.
Legal Occupations That Might Suit. And, I feel, many other professions are suitable, or suited to, a person who was a feral child, for instance: Road construction or maintenance (especially in less populated areas), ranching, farming, forestry, lumbering, fire-fighting including forest and oil well fires, oil rig maintenance, merchant marine, or hazardous military assignments (although this might hazard collateral damage during or after assignments, with both foreign and homeland populations).
4. Characteristics of the Feral Child — Risk-Taking
And the reason for this, as I understand it from reading Wikipedia on the topic, is that some of the qualities they have are risk-taking. Maybe, you could consider, they did not have a mom to tell them not to take that risk … to explain to them the pros and cons of risks.
So risk-taking is one factor, in the constellation of personality characteristics, of antisocial personality or feral child.
5. Characteristics of the Feral Child — Invincibility
Another is the idea that they will succeed no matter what; that they are the only person who will beat the odds. For instance, they could be a gambler, and they could think that they would always beat the odds, no matter what the outcome … They would always think that.
6. Characteristics of the Feral Child — Depersonalization of Other People
And the reason for that, I feel, is that lacking that bonding instinct, they do not have a ‘relative’ sense of other people. For them, the constellation of their Universe is only they.
Everybody else in that Universe is like a building block in their picture of reality … Not a human being, as in the case of bonding (which creates a concept that someone else is the ‘mother’, or the ‘siblings’, or the ‘father’ … that these people are people, and not just like an inanimate object that you use to construct or improve your Universe.
But for the antisocial personality, who is missing this very important fundamental of childhood learning, everybody that they see is just like furniture, or ornaments, with which they create the beautiful picture of their reality.
7. Characteristics of the Feral Child — Cruelty … Sadism
The suffering of another person means nothing whatsoever to them. They never learned that lesson … You know, in kindergarten, when children are playing in the sandbox, or playing in the kindergarten … and the teacher is watching. And they hit a child. And that child starts crying. And they start laughing.
You have seen that, right? All children go through this learning process. Generally, push comes to shove. And the teacher gives the child that slapped the other child a little slap, or a stern reprimand; something that makes that child cry, and realize that the suffering of someone else is related to his or her own suffering.
But the feral child never learns this. They grow up in an environment similar to that of the pack animal … say the pack of wolves, or the pack of apes; like that.
8. Characteristics of the Feral Child — Feral Instincts … Predator-Prey
Apes are the exception to the rule, because there is bonding and compassion … and some, also, amongst wolves. But the overriding principle amongst most wild animals (but not the primates known as bonobos) is predator-prey relationship.
And that is a relationship that the feral child falls into, in very early childhood, generally speaking … Being on the streets, relating really only to an animal or to people who are like animals. You see how it happens?
So to get back to this series of unconscious links … and changing from the word ‘cachet’ to the word ‘sachet’, pronounced sa-shay’ and mispronounced sa-shet’ …
The ‘Odor of Death’ as Occupation. The thing of it is, an antisocial personality will pick an occupation that has what you might call sa-shet’ … And by sa-shet’ I mean what you might call the ‘odor of death’ about it: Death of others, and death of oneself.
Intentional Transmission of HIV. For instance, if an antisocial personality … a feral child … takes some sex work, or has multiple sexual partners (engages in polyamory), or frequents sex workers, and contracts HIV, then the characteristics of that person are able to delight in the idea of transmitting disease and death to other people by having unprotected sexual relations and transmitting the HIV virus to others,
10. Characteristics of the Feral Child — Blaming Others
Here is another characteristic of the feral child: They will always believe that someone else is responsible for every socially unacceptable thing that they do … That it is someone else’s fault.
There never was a person in their life that explained to them the idea of free will, and the idea that they as a person have responsibility for the decisions that they make. This is another childhood learning process that cannot take place, because they were never in the presence of a parent figure that was able to explain it to them during those critical, first few years of life.
So, when an antisocial personality who is a sex worker, or who has multiple sexual partners or frequents sex workers … And I am not saying that all sex workers are antisocial personalities at all; merely that what the psychologists call an antisocial personality might choose such an occupation because of the way that it reflects their own motives and personality …
So in this case of the feral child who becomes a sex worker: Should that child contract HIV, for instance, he or she would believe that it is the fault of other people that this happened.
And there are a lot of people who are not antisocial personalities, who have trouble taking responsibility for their actions. So there is that too. But in the antisocial personality, this is carried to great extremes.
For instance, there might be a case of an antisocial personality who … not knowing any different; not knowing any compassion, and not understanding that other people suffer, or that it matters that they suffer … might have killed any number of people; and might not feel … in the least … that he or she is responsible for this behavior …
And would feel no qualms whatsoever about picking some other acquaintance, and arranging things in such a way that that other acquaintance is blamed for all those killings.
This is quite common for the feral child who becomes a feral adult human.
11. Characteristics of the Feral Human — The Sacrificial Cult Following
And in fact, they may be so aware of that quality that they might have lined up, somehow, in their living arrangements, a number of people who, through their social mask, they have been able to convince that they are normal … and in most cases, extra-ordinary people … who deserve respect and loyalty, according to the way that humans do.
And these very people are the ones that they would choose to ‘quote unquote’ … and aptly quoted … ‘throw to the wolves’ in the event they themselves are about to be ‘caught out’ in antisocial behaviors.
12, Characteristics of the Feral Child
Lying . Redirection. Another characteristic of the feral child and the feral human is lying. By that I do not mean the occasional white lie. I mean that, in the subconscious mind, which I hear in the clair chatter, almost everything that they say is a lie and a misdirection. an attempt to refer or ‘redirect’ people who hear the clair chatter to other people, and to redirect the conversation to other people.
Chameleon-like Layers of Masks. It is social mask upon social mask. It is like the con artist who has 20 drivers’ licenses, each with a different name on it, or like the credit card thief with 20 different credit cards stolen from other people. The feral child or the feral human may have 20 social masks, each with a different personality … a different tone and rhythm of voice, a different set of cadences and figures of speech, a different set of emotional responses, different facial muscle caricature, different ways of moving the hands and of walking, different wigs and clothes and shoes, different gender or apparent age, and of course, a different drivers license and a different set of credit cards. A feral human can shuck a personality and move on to another personality in the time it takes you to say ‘Jack Robinson’.
The feral human knows, from experience, that their thought processes are different from those of other human beings. They know that, if a person logs onto their thought processes, and if they do not lie, that that person will understand what is going on with them; the lack of socialization that they have; the missing childhood learning.
Lying by ‘Telling the Truth’. But I have seen, over and over again … amongst those that they have conned into being friends with them through careful study and manipulation of the other person’s emotions … I have seen on the clair plane that those who are loyal friends of theirs, when the feral humans do tell the truth on being asked a direct question, ‘hands down’ refuse to believe it …
For instance, someone who is a loyal friend of an antisocial personality person might say: Dear heart, is it true that you sometimes kill people?
And then, with a total lack of remorse or concern for the situation … with a lightness of tone, or with a tone of relaxed humor … that antisocial personality might respond: I do kill from time to time.
I have heard this over and over again, on the clair chatter plane. And then the loyal friend or follower will say: Oh my good Lord, no! Tell me it isn’t so!
And this has happened so many times that now I get very upset about it. I get very aggravated that a person could not understand what is being told to them; cannot conceive what is being told to them.
And the fact of the matter is, that this is counted upon by the antisocial personality:
- First, loyalty … First, the normal interplay of emotions from this follower
- And then, statement of the truth in such a way that it is an emotionally honest statement from the standpoint of the antisocial personality, who never feels remorse … whether or not he kills, or does any sort of violent deed … He does not care at all.
- But the fact that he does not care … that he has no emotional affect around these things that are considered by society to be heinous crimes … is interpreted by the loyal follower as a light joke; as a statement that of course this could not be true.
I can almost hear the gears grinding, in the mind of the loyal follower: Of course this cannot be true, because his voice is relaxed and joking; that he might have committed these crimes, and feel that way, is unthinkable!
13. For the Clair Observer: Stepping into Neutral Mind
So what we have to do, when we analyze a person … when we see a personality, and hear the clair chatter … is to recognize what is true, emotionally … And from that, draw a picture of a personality that might be completely different from our own. You see?
It might be worlds apart from our own, and yet, for that personality, that is the truth of their reality. And we have to work with their motivational field … not ours. And not expect that interplay of bonding and love and family feeling or group feeling. We have to expect the unexpected.
So! Lying; constant lying. And a depth of social masks that you would not expect normally.
14. Ascension Skills: Clair Listening Deep Beneath the Mask
Most people have ‘a’ social mask or two, you know? Maybe one for church. Maybe one for the office. Another one for their family. And then they have their own personal reflections and thoughts.
What with the Ascension process happening, everybody is privy to everyone else’s social masks and original, genuine thoughts and feelings, you see? And so we are ‘calling’ each other on that.
So, here comes the antisocial personality … the person that has never experienced any of this socialization process … And who is, what you might say, ‘flying blind’ with his own theories, through a reality that has to appear surrealistic, really … because everybody else is functioning by different rules.
And this person is creating so many social masks … one for every person … one for every situation … that, when we hear the clair chatter, we have to listen ‘back a depth’ … We have to listen ‘far behind’ the masks.
We have to listen down deep. And the farther down we get into the Lower Triangle … the gut brain … the first three chakras (navel point and below) … As we listen to the other person, through empathy, the closer we will get to the truth of that person’s reality, which is functional, mainly, in the lower chakras (fear of death and desire to kill; rape and fear or rape; control of other people and fear of being controlled) … and also through the cerebral cortex, you see?
This process of discovering the very deepest subconscious mind is something that we all undertake, on our Ascension journey, as soon as we have mastered a certain level of clearing in our own electromagnetic field.
I urge you all to look into this when the opportunity arises, because it reveals the kind of thing that most people, so far, have never been able to see …
The basic fundaments; the feral instincts; the animal instincts; the early human subtypes that were almost bestial, as humanity rose out of the depths of the animal realm … where, according to the School of Theosophy, there is only just one Group Soul for each type of animal … into the concept of individuation.
At that borderline, there are amazing discoveries to be made, and clearing work to do, for all humankind.
So, to get back on topic: Lying, many social masks, and the sacrifice of other people (who are considered not really real people … not really like oneself) … the sacrifice of others in the event that antisocial behavior is discovered, by laying blame upon them instead of upon oneself.
15. Characteristics of the Feral Human: Developing a Cult Following
So it would behoove an antisocial personality to develop, for instance, a following of people that he or she has convinced that he or she is an extraordinarily wonderful human being.
Charles Manson. And along these lines, in this context, fall some personalities like Charles Manson … and other personalities who lead groups or cults and have followings.
Daniel Perez, the Midwest Cult Leader … It looks like he operated in Texas, the Dakotas, Missouri, Tennessee and Kansas. [This part of the video was likely partly about Daniel Perez, the Midwest cult leader; but it looks like I got it partly mixed up with a television movie.] I saw on on television the other day … about a person in the central United States. He stuck to small towns. This was like a re-enactment of his life. And he was the most personable guy. He was a wonderful guy! He had his followers, many of which were women with children … whom he had apparently taken liberties with.
And these people he had convinced that he had many supernatural powers. And that he was like a prophet or a saint, you know? They were completely hoodwinked by him.
16. Characteristics of the Feral Human: Mind Control . Manipulation of Emotions
Another time I will go into how this happens, because it is a very arcane and complicated science that involves, briefly, careful study of mind control, careful study of normal human responses and emotions … So that these can be played upon, like a person plays upon a piano.
And in fact, that is how it is considered to be. The other humans are considered to be like musical instruments that the antisocial personality can get to play certain tunes by adjusting the strings … by manipulating the strings of their emotions and their minds.
So that is briefly it; although I will go into greater detail, I feel, in a future blog.
17. Characteristics of the Feral Human: Hoodwinking . Cult Loyalty
So in this way, for instance, the Charles Manson personality, for instance, could create a following of people that devoutly believed in him. Even after they were all incarcerated, and sentenced to long terms in prison, still they believed in him.
I seem to recall I saw a video with some of them, after they were in prison … I do not know if it was a video, or just a newspaper account … to that very effect: That they still believed in him completely.
Then I saw the television documentary [or was it a fictional account, a movie?] about this person from the Midwest, who had done all kinds of things. He had apparently arranged the killings of a bunch of his followers in his house [or was that only one follower?].
As to the people that followed him … his Cult … it seemed from the documentary [or was it a fictional movie?] that the main emotions they felt were that ‘hoodwinked’ thing … that charismatically carried away thing … That he could do whatever he wanted because he was so very special.
18. Why Cult Followers Feel Primal Fear
And the second thing that they felt was very abject fear at the idea of trying to go against his will, and terror at the notion of trying to escape from that situation. I tend to think that those two feelings are hallmarks of people who are trapped in a situation of being with an antisocial personality or a feral child or feral adult person.
It could be that this is because the drives that are being activated … and the buttons that are being pushed by the feral personality are to do with pack animal behavior … which is a very deep, deep, subconscious layer of our ‘noospheric essence’.
The reason they are so repressed is that much of the teachings that we learn in childhood, go against pack behavior. For instance, the idea that the strong can overcome the weak … kill the weak … is modified by the socializing aspect of early childhood learning.
And so, when a person lacks this socialization … this intermediate layer of modulation of the primal drives, the feral drives … then that is a pretty scary situation; and further, very scary because they are so darned good at concealing that.
And they must be, or they would never survive.
19. Take 2: Why Cult Followers Feel Primal Fear
I think this very primal feeling of fear, amongst cult followers, has to do with the fact that the antisocial personality who is a cult leader consciously accesses the feral instincts of his followers … And by this I mean that the antisocial personality …
- accesses the followers’ fear of being controlled through his own desire to dominate and control,
- accesses the followers sexual instincts through his desire to rape, and
- accesses the followers fear of death through his desire to injure and kill.
So when these primal chords are struck in the cult followers of antisocial personality leaders, the followers who have socialization training are not able to access this very deep feral process … because they have a layer of mental learning and socialization that covers up and represses those feelings.
And the leader … the ‘ASP’ personality, or antisocial personality … is operating on those principles, without the layer in between. And so he directly accesses that in his followers, and in other people, and creates in them this terrible fear: Terrible fear of death; terrible fear of being raped; and terrible fear of being controlled.
20. Normal Socialization: How Modulation of Repression Varies and Manifests
Further … and just as an aside … I learned today something about the socialization process that represses the feral instincts: It occurs in different people … in different modulations …
Some people, for instance, who are socialized, are slightly less socialized. They are not antisocial personalities, but they might occasionally give in to the instinct to kill others. And yet sexually … (the sex response is another feral instinct) … sexually they are much less inhibited; they are much more able to enjoy the act of sex, right? (Of course, this is not to do with this topic; but it is interesting, nevertheless.)
And then there are people who are slightly more socialized with regard to repression of feral instincts; and these people never have a problem with the instinct of killing; but yet their trouble might be, to more fully express themselves sexually.
So we have modulations of the social repression of the feral instincts.
But in the case of the cult leader who is an antisocial personality, and has normal, socialized followers, we have the diametric extremes: We have a person who has no socialized learning with regard to repressing the feral instincts … and followers who have a normal amount of that.
And this is what gives them the ability to control their minds and control their feelings: The ‘ASP’ is dealing on a completely different level of the mind.
That is my thought; it is a theory. And to continue …
21. Ascension: Transforming Misqualified Energies through the Heart
And here in the Ascension process, what is happening at this point is that these energies of feral instincts being played out in the 3D (third dimensional) reality … in physical reality … are so very much in contrast to the Light of Ascension, that whole energy thread … or series of threads .. is standing out very strongly, and demanding to be resolved and transformed in love.
So if you run into this in your own clair ‘chat room’, I think the thing to do is, first of all, to not resolve towards personalities … because these personalities, of all the personalities on Earth, are the least likely to be discovered by society … but rather, to resolve the energies involved.
And because these ASPs are so incredibly adept at mind control, this can only be done … the energies can only be resolved … through the energy of the heart field, which is the only energy of the human body that is stronger than the mental energy.
22. A Grounding Meditation: Light, Love, Joy
And who would want to continue on, with the quicksilver dancing of the mind, if they could resolve into the steady rhythm of love through the heart?
When I feel my heart, I try to visualize the organ of my heart, and feel that organ, and pinpoint my concentration raptly on that organ …
The first thing that I notice … because I am EMF (electromagnetic field) conscious … is that the clair chatter goes away … and is replaced by the play of energy of thought forms around the area of the head, instead of the learned meaning of those thought forms.
And so, my need to respond to the demands of the feral instincts … of the feral children playing there … goes away … because I am no longer concentrating on the grammar of telepathy; but rather, on the play of EMF energy, especially in my heart field.
So by sitting still, especially outside, I find that this works for me.
. . . . .
A GROUNDING MEDITATION: LIGHT, LOVE, JOY
by Alice B. Clagett
20 November 2015
Last night I was trying one more new thing; and that has to do with grounding indoors. And to do that, I sat cross-legged. I will show you a picture of that. I had my wrists on my knees, my fingers extended, and my fingertips touching the surface that I was sitting on …
Image: “Grounded Meditation,” self-portrait and compilation by Alice B. Clagett, 20 November 2018, CC BY-SA 4.0 … At the top, a photo of the author sitting cross-legged on the floor, with wrists on knees and fingers extended, fingertips touching the floor. In the middle, this legend: Grounding Meditation: Imagine fingertips of left hand feel ‘Light’; Fingertips of right hand feel ‘Love’; Derriere feels ‘Joy’. At the bottom of the image is an emerald green equilateral triangle; in the middle of the triangle are the words ‘Floor Plan’ (in dark green font); then there are three words in royal blue font: on the right side of the base of the triangle is the word ‘Light’; on the left side of the base of the triangle is the word ‘Love’; and at the peak of the triangles is the word ‘Joy’. From “I am of the Stars” … https://iamofthestars.com/ ..
And so I had three points of contact where I was sitting: My fingertips on the floor near my knees, and my derriere too. So I imagined a triangle on the floor … emerald colored, like the heart energy … and beside my left fingertips, the feeling of Light; beside my right fingertips, the feeling of Love; and at my derriere, the feeling of Joy.
So the triangle expressed Light, Love and Joy at those three points. And what I immediately found was that it immediately pulled my energy down into a very grounded state, where I was then able to concentrate on my heart much better.
. . . . .
So … a couple of things to try. More, perhaps, on feral children a little later. But if you think … in the meantime … about the difference between a feral cat’s behavior, and the behavior of a cat that was raised in the presence of humans, you will get a better idea about how it is for people who are missing the fundamentals of early childhood socialization training.
Well, you all take care. God bless you all, and keep you safe in His love and Light, till next we meet.
In love, light and joy,
I Am of the Stars

Below are some interesting excerpts from this Wikipedia article:
How to Tell If a Person Has Antisocial Personality Disorder
“The APA‘s Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, fourth edition, text revision (DSM IV-TR), defines antisocial personality disorder (Cluster B):
- A) A pervasive pattern of disregard for and violation of the rights of others, occurring since age 15 years, as indicated by three or more of the following:
- failure to conform to social norms with respect to lawful behaviors as indicated by repeatedly performing acts that are grounds for arrest;
- deception, as indicated by repeatedly 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.”
- B) The individual is at least age 18 years. [I find this to be not true, per the clair chatter; apparently, the constellation of behaviours begins a few years after birth. However, for diagnostic purposes, and because early childhood socialization learning most likely happens in stages, it may be difficult to pihpoint this disorder till a person is 18 years of age. (?) –Alice]
- C) There is evidence of conduct disorder with onset before age 15 years.
- D) The occurrence of antisocial behavior is not exclusively during the course of schizophrenia or a manic episode.”

Here Is Another Set of Diagnostic Guidelines
“The WHO‘s International Statistical Classification of Diseases and Related Health Problems, tenth edition (ICD-10), has a diagnosis called dissocial personality disorder (F60.2):
- It is characterized by at least 3 of the following:
- Callous unconcern for the feelings of others;
- Gross and persistent attitude of irresponsibility and disregard for social norms, rules, and obligations;
- Incapacity to maintain enduring relationships, though having no difficulty in establishing them;
- Very low tolerance to frustration and a low threshold for discharge of aggression, including violence;
- Incapacity to experience guilt or to profit from experience, particularly punishment;
- Marked readiness to blame others or to offer plausible rationalizations for the behavior that has brought the person into conflict with society.”

“ASPD is considered to be among the most difficult personality disorders to treat. Because of their very low or absent capacity for remorse, individuals with ASPD often lack sufficient motivation and fail to see the costs associated with antisocial acts. They may only simulate remorse rather than truly commit to change: they can be seductively charming and dishonest, and may manipulate staff and fellow patients during treatment. Studies have shown that outpatient therapy is not likely to be successful, however the extent to which persons with ASPD are entirely unresponsive to treatment may have been exaggerated.
“Those with ASPD may stay in treatment only as required by an external source, such as a parole. Residential programs that provide a carefully controlled environment of structure and supervision along with peer confrontation have been recommended. There has been some research on the treatment of ASPD that indicated positive results for therapeutic interventions. Schema Therapy is also being investigated as a treatment for ASPD. A review by Charles M. Borduin features the strong influence of Multisystemic therapy (MST) that could potentially improve this imperative issue. However this treatment requires complete cooperation and participation of all family members. Some studies have found that the presence of ASPD does not significantly interfere with treatment for other disorders, such as substance abuse, although others have reported contradictory findings.
“Therapists of individuals with ASPD may have considerable negative feelings toward clients with extensive histories of aggressive, exploitative, and abusive behaviors. Rather than attempt to develop a sense of conscience in these individuals, therapeutic techniques should be focused on rational and utilitarian arguments against repeating past mistakes. These approaches would focus on the tangible, material value of prosocial behavior.
“No medications have been approved by the FDA to treat ASPD, although certain psychiatric medications may alleviate conditions sometimes associated with the disorder and with symptoms such as aggression, including antipsychotic, antidepressant or mood-stabilizing medications.”
History [bolding is mine. –Alice]
“The DSM-II in 1968 rearranged the categories and ‘antisocial personality’ was now listed as one of ten personality disorders but still described similarly, to be applied to individuals who are: ‘basically unsocialized’, in repeated conflicts with society, incapable of significant loyalty, selfish, irresponsible, unable to feel guilt or learn from prior experiences, and who tend to blame others and rationalize. The manual preface contains ‘special instructions’ including ‘Antisocial personality should always be specified as mild, moderate, or severe.’ The DSM-II warned that a history of legal or social offenses was not by itself enough to justify the diagnosis, and that a ‘group delinquent reaction’ of childhood or adolescence or ‘social maladjustment without manifest psychiatric disorder’ should be ruled out first. The dyssocial personality type was relegated in the DSM-II to ‘dyssocial behavior’ for individuals who are predatory and follow more or less criminal pursuits, such as racketeers, dishonest gamblers, prostitutes, and dope peddlers. (DSM-I classified this condition as sociopathic personality disorder, dyssocial type). It would later resurface as the name of a diagnosis in the ICD manual produced by the WHO, later spelled dissocial personality disorder and considered approximately equivalent to the ASPD diagnosis.”
