2008 Moral dilemma discussions: An effective group intervention for juvenile offenders.

Describes how some young male and female offenders participated in moral dilemma discussion groups and their results. Results showed that both male and female treatment groups’ behavior was enhanced by discussion groups. The study’s findings indicate that moral groups cannot improve offenders’ morality on their own. This suggests that in order to modify offenders’ as much as possible, institutional reform as well as moral dilemma groups may need to be implemented.
