“How to Be BrainWise” is Published

Posted On: September 23, 2006

In response to many requests from teachers and parents, Dr. Barry has published a companion book to her curricula entitled:  “How to Be BrainWise: The Proven Method for Making Smart Choices.” As Dr. Barry explains in the preface to the book, for years she felt her work with children, youth and adults did little to help them change behaviors that diminished and sometimes ruined their lives. These succeeding generations who repeated cycles of violence, substance abuse, and other destructive behaviors lead her to found the BrainWise program.  The book summarizes the program that has been successfully taught in classrooms and at agencies and businesses throughout the world.

The book, published by Innisfree Press, is an easy-to-read and thoughtful book that has been described by Dr. David Olds, Ph.D. as a “terrific little book that helps parents become more mindful of their parenting and helps children think before they act.”

The book can be purchased through the BrainWise program’s website or at www.howtobebrainwise.com
