This chapter reviews evidence about individuals who display antisocial behavior throughout their lives. This syndrome is diagnosed as antisocial personality disorder (ASPD) in adulthood and conduct disorder (CD) prior to age 15. The chapter focuses on the majority of these individuals who present low or no traits of psychopathy. It presents a description of children with CD who develop schizophrenia. The proportions of children with CD who present elevated levels of callous-unemotional traits and adults with ASPD who present high levels of psychopathic traits or the syndrome of psychopathy are unknown. The prevalence of depression is much higher among children with CD than without, and the combination is associated with more severe symptoms and higher levels of social impairment. Children with CD present elevated rates of childhood maltreatment and adults with antisocial behavior experience repeated victimisation.
