The guideline on Antisocial Personality Disorder, commissioned by NICE and developed by the National Collaborating Centre for Mental Health, sets out clear, evidence- and consensus-based recommendations for staff working in health and social care and the criminal justice system on how to treat, manage and prevent antisocial personality disorder.

The NICE guideline takes the first comprehensive view of antisocial personality disorder and is an invaluable resource to enable professionals to improve the outcomes for people with the disorder, who often have significant impairments. Being able to prevent and properly manage antisocial personality disorder will also have considerable social implications.

This publication brings together all of the evidence that led to the recommendations in the NICE guideline, and draws on a wide literature, including evidence for the management of offending behaviour. It includes a review of interventions in children and young people with conduct disorder, which may prevent the development of antisocial personality disorder; risk assessment and management; organisation and experience of care; and a range of interventions for adults with antisocial personality disorder, including psychological interventions, treatment for comorbid disorders, therapeutic communities and pharmacological interventions. The book also contains a useful overview of antisocial personality disorder, including ethical considerations.
