Strain Theory: An individual’s position in society determines whether they have the means to achieve their goals or must otherwise turn to deviance.
Power Elite: Definitions and rules of deviance are created by a select few; rules and definitions of deviance are applied unequally based on power
Differential Justice: The differential treatment of folks in the criminal justice system, based on race, ethnicity, or social class.
Labeling Theory: Deviance is determined by the reactions of others; applying deviant labels to an individual may lead them to further deviance.
Differential Association: Deviance is learned through interactions with others who break the rules.
