    The Role of Value Priorities and Professional Ethics Training in Moral Sensitivity.Liisa Myyry & Klaus Helkama - 2002 - Journal of Moral Education 31 (1):35-50.
    This study investigated the sensitivity to moral issues from a story in a professional context and development of the ability to interpret moral situations in a sample of 50 social psychology students participating in a one-semester course on professional ethics. The relationships between initial value priorities measured by Schwartz Value Survey (1992) and moral sensitivity were also explored. Nearly half of the respondents (46%) progressed on sensitivity from the pre-test to the post-test, whereas the control group's ( n = 6) (...)

  3. Explorations in Reported Moral Behaviors, Values, and Moral Emotions in Four Countries.Liisa Myyry, Klaus Helkama, Mia Silfver-Kuhalampi, Kristina Petkova, Joaquim Pires Valentim & Kadi Liik - 2021 - Frontiers in Psychology 12.
    University students from Bulgaria, Estonia, Finland, and Portugal were given a list of morally relevant behaviors, the Schwartz Value Survey and Tangney’s TOSCA, measuring empathic guilt, guilt over norm-breaking, and shame. A factor analysis of MRB yielded 4 dimensions: prosocial behaviors, interpersonal transgressions, antisocial behaviors and secret transgressions. Prosocial behaviors were predicted by self-transcendence–self-enhancement value contrast only while the three transgression categories were associated with both SET and openness to change–conservation contrast. Norm-breaking guilt was more strongly associated with behaviors than (...)
