Moral Reasoning Development Programmes in Prison: Cognitive‐developmental and Critical Reasoning Approaches

Journal of Moral Education 13 (2):112-123 (1984)
Two intensive ll-week moral education programmes were designed to develop the maturity of moral reasoning stages of medium-security prison inmates. One programme was based on the cognitive disequilibrium induction techniques of the Kohlberg orientation; the other was based on the adequacy of moral reasoning competencies approach advocated by the Association for Values Education and Research . Both programmes resulted in significant and non-differential advances in moral reasoning abilities, while inmates in a comparison group showed no advance. Results are discussed in terms of programme advantages and design needs for effective moral reasoning education in prison institutions
