The cause of antisocial personality disorder, or ASP, is unknown. Like many mental health issues, evidence points to inherited traits. So although ASP may have a hereditary basis, environmental factors contribute to its development.
Many researchers say that abnormal developments of the nervous system may cause Anti Social Behaviors.
A recent study also has shown that if a mother smoked during her pregnancy, the risk of having anti social behavior increases.
Anti social Behavior
Nikki Granath & Jeremiah Avery
Few individuals rarely seek treatment.
Many anti socialists seek drugs or alcohol.
They have poor insight and reject the diagnosis or symptoms.
Many seek psychotherapy for help.
Psychotherapy for people with ASP should focus on helping the individual understand the nature and consequences of his disorder so he can be helped to control his behavior. Exploratory or insight-oriented forms of psychotherapy are generally not helpful to people with ASP.

The environment is a big contributor to antisocial behavior.
For example, parents of troubled children frequently show a high level of antisocial behavior themselves.
In one large study, the parents of delinquent boys were more often alcoholic or criminal, and their homes were frequently disrupted by divorce, separation or the absence of a parent.
Erratic or inappropriate discipline and inadequate supervision have been linked to antisocial behavior in children
