Supporting Moral Development: The Virtues Project[TM]
de Moor, Gerrit
Reclaiming Children and Youth, v20 n2 p54-58 2011
The Virtues Project[TM] was founded in Canada in 1991 by Linda Kavelin Popov, Dan Popov, and John Kavelin who were concerned about the level of violence among families and youth. In studying sacred traditions and cultures around the world, they identified a set of common virtues. These were used to develop a pedagogical model that has applications in schools, communities, and youth care organizations. In the International Year of the Family, the project was honoured by the United Nations as a model global program for families of all cultures. This article suggests how The Virtues Project[TM] can deepen Life Space Crisis Intervention skills as the combination of the two models can contribute to moral development and spiritual growth. Examples of verbal scripts for strengthening virtues are provided.
