In the criminal justice world, recidivism is when a criminal repeats an undesirable behavior after they either experienced negative consequences of that behavior, or were treated or trained to extinguish that behavior. Recidivism has a direct correlation to psychopathy defined by uninhibited gratification in criminal or aggressive impulses and the inability to learn from past mistakes. In the case of criminals, they gain satisfaction through their antisocial behavior and lack remorse for their actions. There are those who claim that if criminals are taught there is a different approach to living that is not criminally based, they will see the error of their ways and choose a path that is beneficial to themselves and society.
