Conscience Works is a website that features electronically published works on moral developmental psychology and its applications.
Conscience Works grows out of more than twenty-five years of collaboration, research, writing and teaching under the auspices of the Indiana University (IU) Conscience Project.
Conscience Works is meant to serve several purposes and appears in four major divisions.
