However, they lack moral competence, which Georg Lind has defined as the ability to solve conflicts through deliberation and communication rather than through violence, deceit and power. The data of this experimentally designed intervention study show that imprisonment mostly makes things worse. It leads to a regression of moral competence. Further, these data show that - with appropriate training methods like the Konstanz Method of Dilemma Discussion (KMDD) - moral competence can be effectively and sustainably fostered. The KMDD lets participants learn to solve stressful morally dilemmatic moments with mutual respect, thinking and discussion - the keys to a non-delinquent life in society.</dcterms:abstract> <bibo:uri rdf:resource="http://kops.uni-konstanz.de/handle/123456789/31822"/> <dc:creator>Hemmerling, Kay</dc:creator> <dc:publisher>Frankfurt am Main</dc:publisher> <dcterms:issued>2014</dcterms:issued> <void:sparqlEndpoint rdf:resource="http://localhost/fuseki/dspace/sparql"/> <dc:publisher>Peter Lang Ed.</dc:publisher> <foaf:homepage rdf:resource="http://localhost:8080/jspui"/> <bibo:issn>978-3-631-61830-1</bibo:issn> <dcterms:available rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2015-09-23T09:45:29Z</dcterms:available> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/43"/> <dcterms:isPartOf rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/43"/> <dc:date rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2015-09-23T09:45:29Z</dc:date> <dc:language>eng</dc:language> <dc:contributor>Hemmerling, Kay</dc:contributor> <dcterms:title>Morality behind bars : an intervention study on fostering moral competence of prisoners as a new approach to social rehabilitation</dcterms:title> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
