The Brain Architecture Game

The Brain Architecture Game is a tabletop game experience that builds understanding of the powerful role of experiences on early brain development -- what promotes it, what derails it, and consequences for society. It is appropriate for use with community leaders, policymakers or government officials, health providers and educators.

Concepts addressed include:

  • Traumatic experiences that may inhibit brain development
  • Environmental factors that can mitigate or contribute to positive brain "growth"
  • Outcomes and implications, both short- and long-term, and their implications
  • Healthy practices, ideas, and concepts to promote good brain architecture

Typically, this training is geared towards those who may have a direct or indirect effect on young people and their futures, including health providers, educators, law and policy makers, and influential adults in young lives, such as counselors, coaches and/or mentors. If your organization or community is embarking on a conversation about adverse childhood experiences, toxic stress, or other early childhood issues, the game can be a valuable resource for creating a common understanding and a common language on these topics.

This training is provided with Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin Community Services
