Abstract or Summary
  • In society, labeling can play an important role in how people interact with one another every day. This research focuses on the relationship between internalization and deviance, two important concepts in Labeling Theory. The main question is, does the internalization of a label play a role, whether it be positive or negative, in the amount of, or even, type of, deviance an individual participates in throughout their life. The data set used for this research was found in a scholarly peer-review source that has collected data from two groups: incarcerated juveniles, and inner-city high school students. The main focus of the study was youth violence in California, Illinois, Louisiana, and New Jersey. This information is important because it affects how people see themselves, and others in the context of society. The information found could not only help us to gain a better understanding in how effective these labels are in determining the level of deviance people could potentially participate in because of the label, and how positive labels could counteract high levels of deviance. It is [hypothesized] that negative labels can lay the foundation for deviance an individual participates in.
