Pour a libation for us: Restoring the sense of a moral universe to children affected by violence
Addressing the treatment of children and adolescents affected by violent societies is a difficult one. The problem of combining family, community, and social healing with concern for the well-being of each affected child has been an intractable one in many countries, including the US. The Moral Third is a developmental concept that illustrates how a sense of the moral world is at the heart of psychic development. The paper proposes that this concept offers significant practical application to the treatment of young
people affected by violence and the society that has injured them.
