The BrainsWise program is a social and emotional learning and prevention curriculum that uses a multidisciplinary approach to teach thinking skills – including inhibitory control and other executive functions – called the 10 Wise Ways. The program focuses on neurocognitive development and integrates findings from social science, education, and neuroscience in its design. It integrates the roles that the prefrontal cortex and limbic system play in decision making, explains them simply, and provides a template for nonscientists to teach thinking skills.
BrainWise is taught in schools, clinics, faith-based organizations, agencies, worksites, homeless shelters, hospitals, and households throughout the United States as well as in Canada, China, India, and more than fifteen other countries.
