The Good Behaviour Game is a universal classroom intervention for children aged 6-8 and seeks to reduce aggressive behaviour in order to prevent problem behaviours in middle childhood through early adulthood. The Good Behaviour Game strategy promotes good behaviour by rewarding teams that do not exceed maladaptive behaviour standards. During the first weeks of the intervention, the GBG is played three times each week for a period of 10 min. Over successive weeks, duration increases approximately 10 minutes per game period every 3 weeks, up to a maximum of 3 hours.
