Schweigert, Francis J.
June 4, 2015

Source: (2002) Revision of a paper presented at the First North American Conference on Conferencing. Minneapolis, 6-8 August 1998.

This is a substantial revision of a paper presented at a conference on conferencing. It examines the potential for moral education in victim offender conferencing: (a) to expand the scope of moral learning, beyond that in a moral education theory of punishment; and (b) to extend the duration of moral learning, in accord with the methods of character education and the cognitive-developmental approach. The results of the examination indicate that there is strong potential for moral learning in victim offender conferencing, both in theory and practice.
