In brief: Reactive attachment

Hello, reactive attachment may bode problems in the long run of the relationship.
Antisocial personality disorder may involve legal issues, such as fighting, taking illegal drugs, frequent dui's and other related situations. Which the client may be in need of therapy and medication from psychiatrist , therapist or family doctor.

In brief: Yes

Children/teenagers with reactive attachment disorder fail to learn how to connect with and feel empathy for others, which is perhaps the core deficit in antisocial personality disorder.
A deficit that leads to many of the observed antisocial behaviors.

In brief: Not exactly

A relationship might exist between reactive attachment disorder and antisocial or disruptive behaviors - social withdrawal, a quieter symptom, can also occur. However, antisocial personality disorder is a separate personality disorder.
