Conduct Disorder is seen in Children
Antisocial Personality Disorder is seen in Adults
maybe we can say that good sequence of disorders will be like this:
oppositional defiant disorder is followed by conduct disorder and conduct disorder will be followed by antisocial disorders,now how can we differentiate them?
the most important difference between oppositional... and (conduct,antisocial) is that oppositional person doesn't VIOLATE rights of others but two other disorders do VIOLATE.
and as you've written difference between conduct and antisocial is their AGE before 18 (in some questions this age is the border) is conduct and after 18 is antisocial
