Prevent, Repent, Reform, Revenge is a study of the aims that people intend to achieve by the sanctions and treatments they recommend for wrongdoers. The book is designed to answer two main questions: What kind of analytical scheme can profitably reveal the nature of people's reasoning about the aims of sanctions they propose for perpetrators of crimes and misdeeds? In the aims that people express what changes in overt moral reasoning patterns appear between later childhood and the early adult years? The authors conducted interviews with 136 youths between the ages of 9 and 21 to find out what sanctions and aims they felt were appropriate in three cases of wrongdoing. The resulting information provides an important insight into adolescent moral development.

This collection of essays shows how chaos concepts have motivated theory, research, and applications in many areas of psychology, from neurophysiology to social psychology. While it includes chaos theory, fractals, and neural nets, its central theme is how dynamical modeling in psychology may provide for a proper balance of unification and diversity throughout the field. The volume provides not so much the technical details of the field, but rather examples of both research and professional applications of the many directions that innovations using this unifying approach can take. It is written at a level accessible to the lay reader, but sufficiently sophisticated to enlighten graduate and upper-level undergraduate students, as well as professionals seeking to employ this approach in psychology.

This study analyzes the reasoning process through which individuals determine what consequences are appropriate for those who do wrong. The authors presented six cases of wrongdoing to a large number of teenagers and young adults. This sample was asked what consequences would be appropriate for the wrongdoers and why those proposed consequences would be appropriate. On the basis of the data obtained from the participants, the authors constructed a taxonomy to use in categorizing features of moral reasoning. The authors then applied the taxonomy to compare group and individual modes of moral decision making. The study is significant in its reliance on original data and on its analysis of the thought processes involved in moral decision making.
