Deviant behavior refers to actions or choices that deviate from social norms, but not all deviant behavior is necessarily criminal.

My name is Patricia, and I work for the Department of youth services. I currently have an associate degree in CJ, and I would like to continue with BA mainly because that is my area of interest and because, I feel that it is imperative for me as Black women raising Black children to understand the system that incarcerates people that look like me so disproportionately. Once I earn my degree, I am certain that I would like to continue to work with incarcerated youth. I do have a professional background related to criminology, because the youth I work with are all here because they have committed a crime.

 Deviant behavior refers to actions or choices that deviate from social norms, but not all deviant behavior is necessarily criminal. Criminal behavior, on the other hand, involves actions that violate laws and can result in legal consequences. While all criminal behavior is deviant, not all deviant behavior is considered criminal.
