Event description
Collaborative & Proactive Solutions: Moving From Power and Control to Problem-Solving

About this Event

New York Times bestselling author and clinical psychologist, Dr. Ross Greene has been working with families for over 30 years to reduce adult-child conflict and challenging behavior in children. In this compelling training, Dr. Greene will be discussing the evidence-based model Collaborative and Proactive Solutions (CPS) that he developed and describes in his books The Explosive Child, Lost at School, Lost & Found, and Raising Human Beings. The model represents a significant departure from discipline as usual and focuses on solving problems rather than modifying behavior. CPS encourages collaborative solutions, proactive interventions, de-emphasizes diagnostic categories, and helps kids learn skills including empathy and taking another’s perspective. Participants in this training will leave with an understanding of the underpinnings of the model, its refinements over the past 10 years, and practical assessment and intervention tools that can be used in diverse settings.

Learning Objectives:

Upon completion of this training, participants will be able to:

  1. Describe the five key themes of the CPS model.
  2. Identify and assess the various cognitive skills that are central to handling life’s social, emotional, and behavioral challenges.
  3. Identify and prioritize the unsolved problems precipitating challenging behavior.
  4. Describe how to effectively implement “Plan B” to solve problems, teach skills, and reduce the frequency and intensity of challenging behavior.
