Lex Luthor (Smallville)
Antisocial Personality Disorder
Course and Progression of the Disorder
Lex would benefit from psychotherapy as a means of encouraging him to analyze his emotions in relation to his actions. By regularly meeting with a therapist, Lex can discuss his actions and identify their causes in terms of his emotions and impulses.
Cognitive therapy would also benefit Lex because it involves Lex thinking about how his actions affect the victims of said actions. Lex would also work on his impulsivity which has often been the direct cause of his problems in relation to ASPD.
