The Manitou Springs school district has done an incredible job of teaching BrainWise to their students.  Trained by Colorado State University’s (CSU) Christine Cerbana, teachers have taught thinking skills to 539  K-5 students and administered pre and posttests.  CSU’s analysis of the data found the children made significant improvements in positive decision making, emotional regulation, goal setting and relationship skills.

CSU’s research team – Sabrina Norwood, Juliana Rosa, Kimberly Fairbanks, Danielle Dawes and Christine Cerbana will present the poster at the Rocky Mountain Psychological Association’s 2015 annual meeting.   Juliana Rosa will present a more detailed poster at the prestigious Society for Prevention Research 23rd Annual Meeting to be held in Washington, D.C. May 26-29.
