Reforming Moral Misbehaviour

Journal of Moral Education 19 (2):101-113 (1990)
Abstract When families, schools, and communities are unable, through traditional means, to ?modify? habitual, intractible patterns of moral misbehaviour among children and adolescents, these children are often referred to residential treatment. At The Berkeley Academy we have developed principles, policies and practices of intervention which not only address effectively these patterns of moral misbehaviour, but also address the underlying moral disorder, thus helping the child to restructure the way she thinks, feels, and behaves in school, in families and in the community. In this paper we briefly sketch the three most common patterns of moral misbehaviour which we have observed over the past ten years, discuss the underlying disorder, and describe an approach to education and treatment which has been successful with nearly 80 per cent of the girls in our programme, who are among the most seriously emotionally disturbed girls in Northern California
