A Comparison of Forgiveness and Pro-Social Development.
Scobie, G. E. W.; Scobie, E. D.
Early Child Development and Care, v160 p33-45 Feb 2000
Considers how forgiveness is learned and what developmental features it has in common with other prosocial activities. Maintains that viewing forgiveness within a moral developmental framework does not consider its complex nature nor address related issues such as damage severity, restoring relationships, empathy, or altruism. Explores these areas and suggests ways in which the construct of forgiveness is acquired. (Author/KB)
