Conscience Works grows out of twenty years of collaboration, research, writing and teaching begun by Dr. Barbara Stilwell and Dr. Matthew Galvin, both Child and Adolescent Psychiatrists, and Dr. Mark Kopta, a psychologist at the University of Evansville. As can be discerned from the Acknowledgements to the offering which
comprises our first volume, many others have contributed time and scholarship.
The Indiana University Conscience Project has grown over the years, and currently actively engages in several areas of inquiry and research. This community is meant to serve several purposes, including: publication of original scholarly work not available elsewhere, expansion of our special needs electronic library dedicated to conscience sensitive moral educational books for children, the teachers, parents and others who undertake their moral education, information dissemination, and other items of interest.
