Master’s Ranch Helps Boys With Anti Social Personality Disorder

Does Your Son Struggle with Anti Social Personality Disorder

christian boys homeDoes your boy suffer from Anti Social Personality Disorder (ASPD), which is defined (by the American Psychiatric Association) as “a pervasive pattern of disregard for, and violation of, the rights of others?”  Symptoms include refusal to conform, deceptiveness, bad temper, reckless indifference for his (and others’) safety, and a pattern of foolish behavior and lack of repentance.

An unceasing mental condition in which your son might show signs of dysfunctional thinking and relating to others, he might show absolute apathy for others’ feelings and rights, be calculating and insincere, possibly breaking the law, and exhibiting no feelings of guilt.

These can all be signs of Anti social Personality Disorder, and Master’s Ranch can provide a safe, home-like setting for your son as he struggles to overcome this serious problem.

ASPD characteristics are very complex for parents to distinguish.  There is not a universally agreed upon successful treatment for this disorder but there might be success in ones that show the high cost of illegal and unacceptable behavior.  There are studies that reveal reward systems or contingency management systems to be fairly helpful in navigating behavior to a more satisfactory norm (not to be confused with normal, parental attempts at reprimand and incentive).

How Antisocial Personality Disorder is Solved at Master’s Ranch

While especially difficult to treat, your boy will need enduring treatment for ASPD, as well as for any related conditions, such as depression and anxiety or dual diagnosis.  It is essential to have ASPD correctly diagnosed and treated, so that he doesn’t suffer possible, life-altering consequences, unsafe and reckless behaviors, even repetitious law-breaking leading to incarceration.

You don’t want ASPD to control his life!

Our Christian Boys Home Can Help Your Son with AntiSocial Personality Disorder.

10153096_10152791186157177_3511580799500295636_nA decidedly Christian setting, dedicated to the restoration and healing of families and their teens, our ranch-style residential program for troubled boys uses a family-style model with a strong emphasis on work and discipline.   Boys live on a fully operational farm and are taught responsibility by caring for horses, cattle, pigs and dogs. We give particular attention to using animals in anger management and for healing problems with emotional attachment.

Our Christian boys home program is heavily occupational in nature. In addition to the animal husbandry skills he will learn on the ranch, your son will work with craftsmen in wood, metal, cement, plumbing and electrical construction.  

Our computer-based academic curriculum is nationally accredited, enabling students to finish much of their elective requirements for high school, with traditional classroom instruction, remedial assistance, advanced, college-prep coursework all available, as well as a vocational diploma.

We offer your boy professional clinical-type counseling from licensed therapists in pastoral, group and individual sessions.  We use an informal approach to counseling, in which the outdoors setting encourages active boys to open up and share more readily.

If you’ve almost lost hope and are fighting for your son’s future, consider our small family environment in an agricultural setting, where training is balanced with an unmistakable atmosphere of mentoring, love and acceptance.

Master’s Ranch Christian Academy is a place of healing and hope.  Watch your at-risk teen transform into a healthy, hard-working, respectable, young man, with all the necessary confidence, self-respect and spiritual footing indispensable to fully embrace his family and his future.
