Abstract

Statistical data from the City of Durres in Albania show an increase in domestic crimes, and that the family is becoming a "dangerous place" for crime. That’s why we have undertaken this study to find the social roots of crime. The study will be done under the perspective of theoretical paradigms. Child abuse is a major problem in Albania. It is clear that many cases go unnoticed or unreported, because everything that happens within the, family is difficult to emerge. The biggest problem is not just violence against children at the moment, but deviant behavior that is shaped to them since childhood. Concerns about child abuse, is expanded further beyond physical effects. Evidence shows that people who were abused during childhood have more chances for abusing their children later in life, or to become violent (Gelles & Straus, Family Violence, 1979). Many subsequent studies also have documented domestic violence as a circular intergenerational violence (Gelles, Family Violence, 1985), (quoted in the book: (Meier & Clinard, 2011). The purpose of this essay is the analysis of deviant behaviors of crime and violence within the family. The aim is to highlight if there is a connection between the cases when a person is abused in his childhood and later he becomes abuser himself. The methodology followed is the quantitative method. We have interviewed 600 persons in city of Durres. Through this essay we have achieved valuable recommendations regarding deviant behavior and measures to be taken to prevent deviant behavior in origin. If we make more efforts to stop violence against children, then we will have chances after several years to decrease deviant behavior and to reduce the extent of violence within the family and children.
