The BrainPower Program

A Strategy for Changing Attributions

(p.36) Chapter 3 The BrainPower Program
You Did That on Purpose

Cynthia Hudley

Yale University Press

This chapter discusses the development of the BrainPower Program, which aims to change children's patterns of thinking about social interactions in order to reduce aggressive behavior directed at peers. The intervention curriculum comprises twelve lessons of about one hour each, with materials and activities appropriate for the upper elementary grades—that is, grades 3–6. The central goal of the intervention is to retrain aggressive students to start from a presumption of accidental rather than hostile peer intent in negative social encounters.

Keywords:   BrainPower Program, aggressive behavior, children, peer intent, intervention, social encounters, social interactions
