Storyboard Text

  • Mandy doesn't like coming home from school because her parents hit her on purpose and she gets a lot of injuries (Sedlak & Broadhurst, 1996).
  • Go to your room before I hit you again!
  • The constant abuse makes Mandy very upset and damages the way her brain develops especially the Pre-Frontal Cortex (Hart & Rubia, 2012).
  • These bruises really hurt...
  • SHUT UP! Stop talking about me you useless idiots!
  • This part of Mandy's brain is in charge of her mature adult behaviour and now that it hasn't formed properly she is very impulsive and cannot regulate her emotions (Miller & Cohen, 2001, Ochsner & Gross, 2005).
  • She looks so sad, should we see if she is okay?
  • Mandy lashes out and looses her temper easily and she gets frustrated as she is not sure why she behaves this way.
  • Come in Mandy, we need to talk about your behaviour...
  • I didn't mean to hurt the other kids...
  • Principle's Office
  • Mandy's impulsive behaviour and the fact that she is frustrated with not understanding her emotions gets her into fights with other kids and she is unable to make friends (Teicher et al., 1997).
  • I don't understand why you don't want to be my friend! It doesn't even matter. You're to stupid to be my friend anyway.
  • Mandy is being so mean. I wouldn't want to be friends with her either.
  • In the future, Mandy does not have strong social connections or an understanding of how to behave maturely and gets in trouble a lot with the criminal justice system because of her antisocial behaviour and the way she hurts others (Brower & Price, 2001).
  • I wish I could stop myself from lashing out and hurting people...
