Hey everyone

I'm sitting the unit 3 edexcel psychology paper on Tuesday and I would like some help with SFP as an explanation for crime and antisocial behaviour please! It's my least favourite section of criminology! I understand it well enough - I can write about the theory but I was revising the supporting study done by Madon and I really don't get it! Please can anyone talk me through it or if anyone's got simplified notes on it it would be a massive help!

Thanks in advance

Madon interviewed young people and their parents and found that if a parent labelled their child as a heavy drinker then they were more likely to be a heavy drinker. This is due to the child internalising the label given to them and therefore fulfilling the prophecy which supports the theory.
