Course of disorder
The Joker's father was an abusive alcoholic who would often lash out on him & his mother. Later he lived a pretty normal life up until his wife was murdered while he was disguised as the criminal Red Hood, being pursued by Batman. While being pursued the Joker falls into a vat of chemicals which bleaches his skin, colors his hair green and his lips red, and drives him insane.
An effective type of psychotherapy for ASPD would be one that could help the Joker understand the nature and consequences of his disorder.
Cognitive Therapy: Although first developed to treat depression, cognitive therapy has recently been applied to ASPD.This therapy is the most likely to succeed & it comes with a professional trained to help the patient overcome ASPD, someone who can predict emotions and present an attitude of acceptance without moralizing.
