NPAL Offering 2023-2024

BrainWise is a proven, cross-cultural program that teaches critical thinking and decision-making skills to children and youth!

Founded by Dr. Patricia Gorman Barry Ph.D. in 1995, the BrainWise Program, a 501 (c) (3) non-profit organization, has been involved in the research and development of curricula that teach children, youth, and at-risk adults essential social, emotional, and cognitive skills through an innovative structured approach called the “10 Wise Ways.”

The skills taught by BrainWise can be applied to all problem situations, from the third grader caring full-time for younger siblings to teens who join gangs. The lessons are scripted, so anyone can teach it and the program’s common language explains complex brain concepts simply and easily.  More important, learning BrainWise is fun!
