Eisenberg, Nancy; Zhou, Qing; Koller, Silvia
Child Development, v72 n2 p518-34 Mar-Apr 2001
This study examined demographic and individual difference variables that predicted level of Brazilian adolescents' prosocial moral judgment and self-reported prosocial behavior; it also tested mediating or moderating relations among predictors. Findings generally were consistent with contention that tendency to take others' perspectives and to sympathize are related to prosocial moral reasoning, which motivates prosocial behavior.
