For this discussion, you will think more in-depth about the medicalization of deviance: the transformation of deviance from a legal/moral issue into a medical condition (including mental illness/psychological disorder). Think of one behavior that used to be a considered legal/moral deviance in the past that today is more likely to be seen as a medical condition. Then, answer the following questions: What is this behavior? Who responded to this behavior (police, community, therapist, teacher...) in the past and who responds to it presently (you might want to do some online research on this if you don't know; just make sure to cite your source)? How was this behavior dealt with in the past, and how is it dealt with in the present? Do you think the transformation of this behavior from a moral/legal deviance into a medical condition is positive or negative? Why? Can you think of any examples of behaviors that were considered medical conditions in the past that are now considered moral/legal issues or even normal? Requirements for this Discussion: -Provide a written analysis with at least 250 words, and 3 terms in bold from the following list: (cultural norm, labeling theory, normalization, stigma, social control).
