  1. Sharon Lamb (2013). Just the Facts? The Separation of Sex Education From Moral Education. Educational Theory 63 (5):443-460.
    In this essay Sharon Lamb considers how progressives have begun to win the longstanding battle to shape sex education and what they have had to give up in the process. After framing the battle in historical context, Lamb uses discourse analysis to explore the hidden values in the “evidence-based” (EB) curricula that progressives currently favor and that pass for neutral today. As her analysis reveals, EB curricula privilege three discourses — a discourse of science, a discourse of healthy choices (with (...)

  3. Sharon Lamb (2005). Forgiveness Therapy: The Context and Conflict. Journal of Theoretical and Philosophical Psychology 25 (1):61-80.
    This paper is a critique of forgiveness therapy that focuses on the cultural contexts in which forgiveness therapy arose, with a special focus on the movement to address the victimization of women. I describe forgiveness as described by forgiveness therapy advocates and the moral and non-moral benefits claimed on its behalf. I then describe the cultural context that may explain the popularity of this form of therapy at this historical moment; the first context is a broad cultural context, looking at (...)

  5. Sharon Lamb & Jeffrie G. Murphy (eds.) (2002). Before Forgiving: Cautionary Views of Forgiveness in Psychotherapy. Oup Usa.
    Psychologist Sharon Lamb and philosopher Jeffrie Murphy argue that forgiveness has been accepted as a therapeutic strategy without serious, critical examination. Chapters by both psychologists and philosophers ask: Why is forgiveness so popular now? What exactly does it entail? When might it be appropriate for a therapist not to advise forgiveness? When is forgiveness in fact harmful?

  7. Sharon Lamb (1997). Sex Education as Moral Education: Teaching for Pleasure, About Fantasy, and Against Abuse. Journal of Moral Education 26 (3):301-315.
    Abstract This paper argues for an integration of moral education and sex education curricula. In such an integration, the primary values that would be taught would not be those relating to specific sexual behaviour but those relating to the general treatment of human beings, suggesting that sex that involves coercion or exploitation as well as sex that causes harm is wrong. Sex educators must take as their goal the prevention of abuse, not by placing responsibility on girls to avoid victimisation (...)

  8. Sharon Lamb (1993). First Moral Sense: An Examination of the Appearance of Morally Related Behaviours in the Second Year of Life. Journal of Moral Education 22 (2):97-109.
    While there has been considerable observational work demonstrating that children in the second year of life show signs of moral development, few studies have commented on the nature of the emergence of these signs. This paper, through a longitudinal study of four toddlers, examines the emergence of several signs of moral awareness and their relation to maternal communications that promote moral awareness. The four toddlers showed peaks in behaviours relating to moral awareness around 17-18 months. These peaks appeared to emerge (...)
