The paper describes the issues in conceptualization and diagnostics of antisocial personality disorder in adolescents and youths. Modern interpretations of the antisocial personality disorder and psychopathy categories are presented in two competing approaches headed by R. Hare and D. Cooke. The application of these diagnoses to adolescents remains problematic, however, it is possible to single out certain predictors indicating potential development of antisocial personality disorder in the future. The methods of diagnostics of the antisocial personality disorder and corresponding individual traits in adolescents present a special problem. Further development of this research area will contribute to the forming of the theoretical grounds, methods, and inventories, as well as the practice of diagnostics, prevention and correction of antisocial personality disorder in adolescents and youths.

Keywords: antisocial personality disorder, psychopathy, adolescence, predictors, conduct disorder, diagnostics of personality disorders

Column: Special Topic: Personality Pathology: Destructive and Self-Destructive Behavior
