Thoughts on Moral Development and the Adventure Field.
Prouty, Dick
Zip Lines: The Voice for Adventure Education, n43 p10-11 Sum 2001
Adventure education addresses moral development in powerful ways. Facilitators modeling moral behavior and framing questions to address moral issues can affect the moral development of participants. Empathy, which is associated with moral development, grows quickly when group members support each other taking risks on challenge courses. Cognitive disequilibrium evoked by adventure education settings is an ideal condition for development. (TD)
