1.3. Social Norms: Folkways, Mores, Taboo, and Laws
Normalization of deviance is a term first coined by sociologist Diane Vaughan when reviewing the Challenger disaster. Vaughan noted that the root cause of the Challenger disaster was related to the repeated choice of NASA officials to fly the space shuttle despite a dangerous design flaw with the O-rings. Vaughan describes this phenomenon as occurring when people within an organization become so insensitive to deviant practice that it no longer feels wrong. Insensitivity occurs insidiously and sometimes over years because disaster does not happen until other critical factors line up.
In clinical practice, failing to do time outs before procedures, shutting off alarms, and breaches of infection control are deviances from evidence-based practice. As in other industries, health care workers do not make these choices intending to set into motion a cascade toward disaster and harm.
Deviation occurs because of barriers to using the correct process or drivers such as time, cost, and peer pressure. As in other industries, operators will often adamantly defend their actions as necessary and justified. Although many other high-risk industries have embraced the normalization of deviance concept, it is relatively new to health care.
It is urgent that we explore the impact of this concept on patient harm. We can borrow this concept from other industries and also the steps these other high-risk organizations have found to prevent it. Abstract Normalization of deviance is a term first coined by sociologist Diane Vaughan when reviewing the Challenger disaster.

A Review of Deviant Nonprofit Groups
Conformity is the act of matching attitudes, beliefs, and behaviors to group norms , politics or being like-minded. People often choose to conform to society rather than to pursue personal desires - because it is often easier to follow the path others have made already, rather than forging a new one. Conformity can occur in the presence of others, or when an individual is alone. For example, people tend to follow social norms when eating or when watching television, even if alone. People often [ quantify ] conform from a desire for security within a group, also known as normative influence  —typically a group of a similar age, culture , religion or educational status.
The article examines the issue of ethical contexts and climates within organizations, as measured by the Ethical Climate Questionnaire developed in by Victor and Cullen , and their implications in the daily work lives of participants. The causes of unethical behaviour, including the presence of counter norms, the environment in which a firm operates, and organizational commitment, as well as the manifestation of this behaviour in the form of workplace deviance, are reviewed. Clearly, unethical and deviant behaviour problems are of great concern to organizations, which must take steps to solve them, at the same time as fostering strong positive ethical cultures. Feels that further studies are needed using more definitive and qualitative measurements to learn more about these behaviours. This article would be useful to those who wish to obtain an overview of the current literature, specifically readers who do not specialize in the subject area.
Abstract How do group members respond when their group wrongfully punishes a group member? In two experiments, participants were.
The relationship of ethical climate to deviant workplace behaviour
Think about a time when a parent, guardian, coach, employer, or teacher agents of social control used informal social control to respond to your behavior. What did the agent of informal social control do? Provide an example when informal social control was applied to another person.
Chapter 6 - Conformity and Deviance. How "good" conformity occurs when people privately accept their group's beliefs. How "bad" conformity occurs when people voices what their group wants them to.
