dc.description.abstractProsocial behavior has many benefits, including increasing academic achievement, stress-reduction, and increasing happiness and life satisfaction. Preschool age is a critical period for prosocial development. Low-income children are at a greater risk for asocial behavior, as they tend to experience high levels of chronic stress and often receive less social stimulation at home and school than their higher income peers. Previous studies have identified many activities that promote prosocial behavior, such as sociodramatic play, but they fail to address the unique circumstances of low-income preschoolers. The current study aims to develop a prosocial program that addresses the specific needs of low income preschoolers by way of theatrical activity and stress-reducing strategies.en_US
