Deviant Behaviors in the Albanian Society

  • Abstract:

    Some distinguishable authors in the field sociology of communication such as: Watzlawick, Bavelas, Jackson (1967), Ruesch, Baterson (1951) have concluded that deviant behavior is largely caused by lack of communication. They, argue that psychopathology can be defined as a communication disorder. Analyzing the phenomenon in this perspective tends to contribute to explain deviant behavior of Albanian society during the transition period. Many people, for different reasons, have changed residence and their previous status and in this context have difficulties in understanding who they really are and what is their mission in the new reality. The surrounding environment is conceptually incomprehensible for them. For this reason, they are panicked that their sent messages won’t be perceived by others.
