Resumen

ZARATTI CHEVARRIA, Mariberta  y  PINTO TAPIA, Bismarck. PROSOCIAL BEHAVIOURAL ATTITUDES IN SENIOR CLASS ADOLESCENTS. Ajayu [online]. 2004, vol.2, n.2, pp. 57-84. ISSN 2077-2161.

This investigation is a contribution to the problematic field of juvenile psychology, and seeks to push adolescence studies out of their traditional range by considering adolescents as active individuals and protagonists of their changes on themselves and the rest of society. Using a descriptive investigation with a comparative analysis, this research describes the pro-social behavioural attitudes in senior classes of adolescents in private schools in the city of La Paz; and then compares the results between the schools and the gender of the students. The results demonstrate that, independently of the type of school, the adolescents in senior classes of private schools in La Paz present an elevated pro-social behavioural attitude. There is no significant difference between catholic schools, other religious schools and secular schools and generally, the adolescent females demonstrate more pro-social attitudes than the male adolescents. The observation of high levels of pro-social attitudes could be seen as an indicator of the potential of adolescents from La Paz; and in doing so, help remove the negative and outdated stereotype of adolescent as problem.

Palabras clave : attitude; pro-social behavioural; adolescents.
