Moral Development and Recidivism: A Meta-Analysis

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

A meta-analysis was conducted (k =19 studies, N = 15.992 offenders) to examine reported inverse relations between moral development and recidivism. Small-to-medium overall effect sizes of r = .11 and r = .19 were found for the fixed and random effect model, respectively. Fixed effect moderator analyses revealed a larger effect size for moral cognition (r = .20) than for moral emotion (r =.11). Effect sizes for production measures (r = .57) were much larger than for recognition measures (r = .16) and unstructured (clinical) judgment (r =.10). A larger overall effect size was found for studies that were published (r = .20) than for unpublished studies (r =.08). Moderator analysis revealed a relatively large effect for female delinquents (r = .32) compared to male delinquents (r = .21) and mixed gender groups (r = .08). Differences in effect-sizes were also found between juvenile delinquents (r =.10) and adult delinquents (r = .16). Finally, self-report measures of recidivism revealed much larger effect sizes (r = .32) than official reports of recidivism (r = .09).
