Raising Human Beings: Creating a Collaborative Partnership with Your Child


Dr. Ross Greene’s evidence-based Collaborative & Proactive Solutions model – as described in his books The Explosive Child and Lost at School -- has transformed the understanding of the treatment of kids with social, emotional, and behavioral challenges in countless families, schools, and therapeutic facilities. With the release of his most recent book, Raising Human Beings, Dr. Greene has turned his attention to all kids, with a particular focus on teaching the skills that define the better side of human nature: empathy, appreciating how one’s behavior is affecting others, resolving disagreements without conflict, taking another’s perspective, and honesty. These skills have never been more important, and research indicates that solving problems collaboratively and proactively teaches these skills with any kid. And – despite academic initiatives that have made it harder for educators to be the socialization agents they’ve always been -- that’s something that parents and educators have boundless opportunities to teach, model, and practice every day.

Discover How To:

  • Nurture empathy, resilience, and independence

  • Improve communication

  • Avoid power struggles
