Moral disengagement is an individual risk factor for the development and adjustment during adolescence, as widely demonstrated in the literature. This study focused on the relation between moral disengagement and transgressive behaviors in a group of 308 Italian adolescents (14-19 years old) and it aimed at verifying whether alexithymia moderates this relation. The findings highlighted significant gender and age differences both in moral disengagement and alexithymia. Besides, results showed a significant relation between moral disengagement and transgressive behaviors moderated by the difficulty in identifying emotions.
