What is the theory behind this Stealing therapy worksheet?

Stealing refers to taking something away without permission that does not belong to you. It is considered a criminal activity in every part of the world but it can also be a disorder, for example kleptomania. The difference between traditional stealing and kleptomania is that in the later kind, the stolen object has little to no importance for the thief. Stealing for them is an extremely maladaptive coping style for another ongoing issue in their lives.
