Moral Development in Different Nations
The profession of school psychology today faces new and challenging demands to meet the psychological needs of children in our schools. Triggered by man’s creative inventiveness, new problems arise that recoil upon all of us and upon our environment. To meet these challenges of our time school psychologists are confronting their task of creating new roles that will broaden the effectiveness of their work in taking account of the personality development of all children. Besides the traditional role in clinical diagnosis and remediation, there is an increasing current emphasis on preventive methods, especially those that are applicable within the classroom setting and that utilize peer group influence as a vehicle that can maximize the social and emotional development of each individual child.
