Interview 1 Schedule

 

In order to gain insight into young people’s perceptions of their own process of moral development, we employed a biographical approach which involved asking them to recall their earliest memories of good and bad and the key people, places and events of their moral development, reflecting on leadership, moral authority and difference in relation to others. Interviews took on average one hour and were recorded on audio cassette tapes. Issues of consent, confidentiality and anonymity were reconfirmed at the start and end of the interview. Data included the audio tapes and transcriptions of interviews (N=57), together with researchers’ field notes.
