Labelling Theory

Labelling theory says we're given labels which affect our behaviour

The classic example of the labelling theory is the..... Self-fulling prophecy of education failure
What is the self fulling prophecy? Where the child is labelled as a bad student and then goes on to actually become a bad student.
Very strong labels can take on...... Whats known as a master status.
What does master status? They replace an individuals other labels. For example someone that has been labelled a criminal could be seen as a criminal, nothing else.
The labelling theory is a kind of Interpretivism it says that the individual can chose to accept or reject labels.
