Criminology as a science has two basic objectives: to determine the cause of crime and criminal behaviour (personal & social) and to evolve the valid principles for the social control of crime. To assist us in achieving these objectives, criminology relies on the findings of biology, psychology, psychiatry, sociology and other related subjects. Understanding and explaining crime and social reaction to it helps us to predict and control it. This knowledge is of particular benefit to therapists working in the counselling field.
