Social bonding theory | CRJ 512 Criminological Theory | Ashford University

 

Travis Hirshi’s social bonding theory is a form of social control. While other criminological theories attempt to explain why crime occurs, social bonding theory explains why people conform to the norms of society and away from deviant and antisocial behaviors. Many argue the threat of punishment as being a deterrent. However, Travis Hirshi, in his contentions, believes there are other factors beyond punishment that are responsible for conformity. Review Chapter 7 in your primary text, and watch The Social Bond Theory  (Links to an external site.)video, which provides examples of the four elements of the theory (Siegel, 2015; Hiemstra, 2013). In your paper,

  • Explain Travis Hirschi’s social bonding theory.
  • Describe the four elements of social bonding theory.
  • Discuss how the social bonding theory affects conformity in America.
  • Discuss the relationship between social bonding theory and the various sociological schools of crime causation.
