Therapy for the psychopath is not without consequence, however. There are many benefits to exploring the self under the guidance under a trained mental health professional, but there is great caution that must be exercised due to society’s distrust of the antisocial. It is up to the individual to determine whether the knowledge gained is worth the risks involved.
There are two primary problems with seeking growth through a psychotherapist as an antisocial. First, the mental health system is often unwilling to treat antisocials. Second, a formal diagnosis that is recorded may be grounds for consequence in the future.
