Anyone have any info/encouragement regarding anti-social personality disorder? The last year has been absolutely heartbreaking for my family.

No specific experience, but {{{hugs}}} Check out GAPS diet just in case, I'm using it for Borderline and Bipolar, I have horrid gut problems. Lots of people have had success treating children with terrible behavior issues using this diet.

That has to be so horrible. I'm sorry.

If I was dealing with this in a child still in my home/under my care I would look into the Nurtured Heart Approach by Glasser (with a therapist if at all possible to guide us who had worked with kids with serious issues). I don't know if it would help but they've used it successfully with kids with serious issues like fire starting, juvenile delinquency, and the like. It's worth investigating.
