12:00 pm – 6:00 pm
Location: Symphony Ballroom 3, 2nd Floor
Organized by Alexandra Main, Debbie Laible, Mary Lewis, Jeffrey Liew, and Alexandra DavisAdolescence is an important period of life during which moral and prosocial understandings, motives, and behavior are paramount as adolescents’ social milieus broaden and their awareness of social issues deepen. Scholars have made great progress in the past few decades going beyond a deficit framework by focusing on ways that a risk and resilience perspective may inform our understanding of healthy development in children and adolescents. The lens of the risk/resilience framework offers an intriguing opportunity to examine maturation of adolescent morality and prosociality as an antecedent and consequence of adaptation. With this fifth Moral Development pre-conference, we intend to stimulate an open discussion among researchers to reflect upon the question “How can a risk/resilience framework inform the study of moral development in adolescence?”Keynote speakers Ann Masten and Velma McBride Murry will discuss their work on risk and resilience in adolescents and discuss in relation to understanding prosocial and moral development during this important developmental period. Thereafter, a panel consisting of notable scholars in the field of moral development will discuss the keynotes and draw connections with their own research. These panelists will also lead interactive, small group discussions to think about ways that researchers can incorporate this influential framework into their work on moral development in adolescence.This fifth Moral Development Pre-conference will be particularly significant for addressing the interests and questions of emerging scholars, as well as being an important discussion forum for all those interested in issues of moral development.
