In this DVD, Mark Amendola and Robert Oliver demonstrate procedures central to The Prepare Curriculum’s Moral Reasoning Training course.
Designed for teacher and staff instruction, the DVD illustrates a small group of adolescents responding to a typical problem situation and shows how leaders challenge group members’ immature thought patterns and work to help them develop a more mature, responsible understanding of consequences, fairness, and empathy.
Shown below is an episode of Prosocially Yours, a podcast produced by Research Press. This episode features co-editor Mark Amedola. For Research Press, host Elizabeth Hess interviews Amendola about his work and working with Dr. Arnold P. Goldstein, psychologist and author of The Prepare Curriculum, creator of Skillstreaming and developer of key principles in Aggression Replacement Training.
This preview features selected scenes from the 18-minute program.
