3 Day Advanced Training in Collaborative & Proactive Solutions with Dr. Ross Greene

About this Event

Collaborative & Proactive Solutions: Advanced Training with Dr. Ross Greene, PhD

This 3 Day Advanced Training provides in-depth exposure to the evidence-based model described by Dr. Ross Greene, PhD in his influential books The Explosive Child, Lost and School, Lost and Found, and Raising Human Beings. Dr. Greene will instruct educators and mental health professionals on how to engage kids in solving the problems that affect their lives.

The CPS model is based on the premise that challenging behavior occurs when the expectations being placed on a kid exceed his or her capacity to respond adaptively. Rather than focusing on challenging behaviors (and modifying them), the model places emphasis on identifying the expectations the kid is having difficulty meeting -(called unsolved problems) and solving them.

At the conclusion of this training participants will:

  • Describe the six key themes of the CPS model, and how the model focuses on problems (and solving them) rather than the behaviors that are being caused by those problems (and modifying them); the advantages of collaborative (rather than unilateral) problem solving; and the importance and feasibility of proactive (rather than reactive) intervention.
  • Identify lagging skills and unsolved problems using the Assessment of Lagging Skills and Unsolved Problems(ALSUP).
  • Describe the three basic mechanisms by which adults handle unsolved problems and unmet expectations in kids (Plans A, B, and C) and what is accomplished by each, and the three steps or "ingredients" of Plan B.
  • Describe how to effectively implement Plan B to solve problems, teach skills, and reduce the frequency and intensity of challenging behavior.
  • Identify strategies for dealing with the various structural factors in schools that may impede implementation of the CPS model.
  • Describe and deal with roadblocks commonly encountered in implementation with individual children and in families and systems.

Lecture, video demonstration, and role-play will be used as the primary means of instruction.

Participants in this training will leave with an understanding of the underpinnings of the model, its refinements over the past 8-10 years, and practical assessment and intervention tools that can be brought back to and used in diverse settings.

Intended Audience: Mental Health Professionals, Special Educators, Classroom Teachers, Special Education Administrators, Superintendents, Principals/Assistant Principals, sSpeech/Language Pathologists, Psychologists, Social Workers, Counselors, Pediatricians/Family Physicians, Staff in Restrictive Therapeutic Facilities (Inpatient Psychiatry Units, Residential Facilities, Juvenile Detention Facilities)
