Values Differentiation as Stage Transition: An Expansion of Kohlbergian Moral Stages
Abstract

Within the past few years psychology has become concerned with the issue of moral development. One theory that has received considerable attention is the cognitive-developmental approach of Lawrence Kohlberg. Unfortunately, Kohlberg does not deal convincingly with the mechanism of stage transition. A paradigm is suggested that explains the particularly crucial transition between conventional and post-conventional morality. Specific suggestions are generated from this values differentiation paradigm for Christian educators who are interested in facilitating moral development in their students.
