Prosociality

It is a theoretical frame, referred to the paradigm that promotes the development of  system of  interpersonal interactions, such as co-operation or selflessness, centred on sharing a common and extrinsic interest, around which interpersonal interaction take place in order to contribute to achieving  common educative goals.The theory of Prosociality comes from the studies on the individual behavior and is based on some propositions: people cooperate not only for self-interested reasons but because they are genuinely concerned about the well being of others, care about social norms, and wish to act ethically.Prosociality in humans is to a significant degree culturally acquired through complex forms of imitative learning, and specific imitative capacities that require some abilities to represent and acquire the intentions and goals of others, as well as their motor patterns.An act is prosocial when it is addressed not to a personal interest but is done in order to assure a general interest and with this act the individuals are aware to stay in an area of respect of rules (even if not written), commonly accepted and made to assure the well-being of the social group or community the individuals feel to be part.The prosocial acts can be defined as:- physical and psychological help- sharing the others’ emotions (empathy)- meta- verbal approach towards the others’ problems addressed to increase the sense of safeness- defending the others against threatens- take into account and appreciate the others’ points of view and differences
