I.IntroductionLabeling prevents us from seeing individuals for who they truly are, so erasing any hope forthem to grow and improve. If we label or regard anyone as a felon, based on the present condition aswell as past record, this could severely alter not only how people perceive that individual, but it can alsohinder the perception of themselves, perhaps damaging both their personal and psychological position. Itwould be extremely hard to get rid of the label of "delinquent" once it’s been applied to someone. As aresult of this, people may view them with suspicion and label them as a criminal (Crossman, 2020).There is a lot of focus on how criminal conduct affects people in the present, particularly howoverall status within one's profession as well as social groups which they are a part of might beaffected by a criminal past. It really is common for people to face discrimination or severe judgmentamong peers due to the obvious circumstances of their upbringing. In the narrative "Why callsomeone by what we don't want them to be? The ethics of labeling in forensic/correctionalpsychology." A human's potential to grow as well as improve can be undermined by such a scenario. Acommon argument against this kind of labeling is because they go against fundamental ethicalconcepts which includes beneficence and nonmaleficence, regard for human decency, and societalobligations (Willis, 2018). The use of labels is all too widespread, yet they may lead to negativemisunderstandings, generate a sense of exclusion, and set off undesirable behaviors or emotionaldistress. Regular exposure to this type of conduct alters one's perspective, which can lead to a returnto one's prior unhealthy habits as well as the belief thinking "I am what they say I am so why change."Sociologist Howard Becker helped popularize the labeling theory concept in American sociologyduring the 1960’s, although its essential principles can indeed be attributed with Emile Durkheim, apioneer in the field. George Herbert Mead's notion with social construction of oneself as nothing more
than a system that includes connections with one another also had an impact on its evolution. Otherresearchers who contributed to the creation as well as the study of labeling theory include FrankTannenbaum, Edwin Lemert, Albert Memmi, Erving Goffman, and David Matza (Willis, 2018).II.InterventionsIntervention I:De-labelling interventions that are evident, straightforward, and easilytransferable to society are the best. Treatment programs and professional organizations' titles canindeed be expressed without the use of labelling. It can also be eliminated from the DSM-5, scholarlypeer reviewed articles and other content. In addition, labels should be simplified and replaced withthose which are not considered stereotypical or derogatory. When an individual's conduct and personalhistory are not separated from the terminology, they use to describe themselves, they are labeled. Theterm should come after the individual, according to the (American PsychologicalAssociation Publication Manual, 2020), postmodified language is preferable than premodifier nouns
