Psychoanalytical Theory

Basic Idea of the Psychoanalytical Theory:
  • Sigmund Freud believed that all humans have criminal tendencies
  • It is through socialization that these tendencies are controlled during childhood
  • If a child has an identity problem with his/her parent, this problem may cause the child to direct its antisocial tendencies outward and thus become a criminal
  • Psychological Human Development also comes into play here
