Prosocial behavior consists of behaviors which are judged to be of social benefit to a particular community, communities, or value system. Behaviors judged to be destructive, on the other hand, are generally considered to be antisocial behaviors.
"voluntary actions that are intended to help or benefit another individual or group of individuals"
(Eisenberg & Mussen 1989, p. 3)
