Course Description: Prosocial behavior is linked to a variety of positive outcomes, but research on its development during adolescence has been limited and inconsistent. The present study examined shifts in prosocial behavior between the ages of 13 and 18, focusing on gender differences in development as well as associations among prosocial behavior, perspective taking, and empathy. Based on surveys administered once per year, the authors found that prosocial behavior increased during this time period, with increases among girls occurring earlier than among boys. In addition, prosocial behavior was linked to the development of empathy among girls, while perspective taking was found to be related to the development of empathy. The results have implications for prevention and intervention strategies that facilitate prosocial behavior by promoting perspective taking and empathy.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Describe the study's main purpose and methods for exploring the development of prosocial behavior
  2. Describe the main findings of the study concerning relationships among adolescent prosocial behavior, gender, perspective taking, and empathy
  3. Integrate the strengths and weaknesses of the study, and summarize the clinical implications for understanding and promoting prosocial behavior among adolescents
