Abstract
Adolescents from Latin American backgrounds generally spend more time helping and assisting their families than teenagers from other groups. In this talk, I will describe a program of research that examined this sources of this helping behavior as well as the implications for other aspects of psychological and behavioral development, focusing on the role of economic resources, cultural identity, daily experiences, and neural development.
