Labeling theorists would argue that deviance is less about what you do and more about the social response to what you do that shapes future routes of deviance. true Labeling theory is an objectivist perspective that rejects symbolic interactionism. Social control theory, developed by Travis Hirschi, is a type of functionalist theory that suggests deviance occurs when a person’s or group’s attachment to social bonds is weakened. According to this view, people care about what others think of them and conform to social expectations because of their attachments to others and what others expect of : Ashley Crossman.
This book investigates how the concept of social control has been used to capture the ways in which individuals, communities and societies respond to a variety of forms of deviant behaviour. in so doing, the book demonstrates how an appreciation of the meanings of the concept of social control is vital to understanding the dynamics and. Despite these questions, Hirschi’s social control theory continues to influence our understanding of deviance. To the extent it is correct, it suggests several strategies for preventing crime, including programs designed to improve parenting and relations between parents and children (Welsh & Farrington, ).

Crime: The study of social deviance is the study of the violation of cultural norms in either formal or informal contexts. Social control is a normative theory, meaning it assumes that there is societal agreement and understanding about the norms and rules of society. Nye's position is that most deviant behavior is the result of insufficient social control.
