Our expert says:
Good question. Someone who is Asocial is unsocial, not social, not able to or interested in being social with others --- which she should be able to see is a fair description of how she has been behaving, and which is not a rude word. Anti-Social is what she may think he meant, and which could be hurtful --- Antisocial would be against society, like a hoodlum / skollie, who knows how society works and doesn't care, and enjoys breaking social rules and is happy to hurt other people. She certainly doesn't sound AntiSocial at all.
So Asocial would be a polite description of how she is described by you and her mom, and maybe even herself --- and not something to feel hurt by. Maybe she should give the therapist a second chance ?
