Welcome & Overview
what is good wolf?
Teaching Neuroscience. Transforming Lives.
Good Wolf is a new nonprofit organization dedicated to harnessing the power of our brains to improve our lives.
We teach concepts of neuroscience - like the prejudice network in the brain, effects of toxic stress on the developing brain and on functioning of the adult brain, and the life-long possibility of healing and growth via neuroplasticity - to help people become socially competent and self-governing.
We are dedicated to creating a better future through understanding and applying neuroscience knowledge to individual lives, relationships and organizations, and public policies.
our mission & vision
Our goal is to create a sustainable and humane society that prioritizes both individual and collective well-being.
From neuroscience, we know much of what’s required for healthy brain development and functioning, and what’s required for intentional and effective action based on shared values.
The name “Good Wolf” comes from a story attributed to Indigenous peoples of North America.
We are an interdisciplinary team of physicians, scientists, professors, educators, communicators, business leaders, and others committed to helping individuals and communities learn to grow and thrive.
