SWK103- Social Work and Deviant Behavior

Lesson 5B Discussion

In 150 Words

Differential Association Theory argues that people learn how to engage in criminal behavior in the same way (using the same mechanisms) as they learn how to do anything else in life. I want you to think about how you came to have the morals and values that you have today. Think about the person you are today, and then think about how you came to these morals and values. What people/groups influenced you to act in deviant ways and what people/groups influenced you to act in non-deviant ways. How did they achieve this? Discuss what each group considered normal and deviant and how you learned from them.
