Ross Greene, PresenceLearning Webinar Presenter

Trying to modify behavior in the typical reactive mode has not proven effective. Students who need help the most benefit least from discipline as usual. It's time to transform our thinking and our practices so at-risk students can achieve. The Collaborative and Proactive Solutions (CPS) model does just that. Collaborative and Proactive Solutions are described by Dr. Ross Greene in his influential books The Explosive Child, Lost at School, and the recently released Lost and Found. We'll take a close look at the CPS model and show why it has been associated with dramatic reductions in adult-child conflict, challenging behaviors, disciplinary referrals, detentions, suspensions, seclusion, and physical, chemical, and mechanical restraints in schools around the world. Join us for this provocative presentation and question and answer session, a powerful and practical conclusion to our three-part series.

Presenter: Dr. Ross Greene, Ph.D., is the Founding Director of the non-profit Lives in the Balance, Associate Professor in the Department of Psychology at Virginia Tech, and author of the books The Explosive Child and Lost at School. He is the originator of the model of care -- now called Collaborative and Proactive Solutions (CPS) -- described in his books, articles, chapters, and research papers. His research has been funded by the Stanley Medical Research Institute, the National Institute on Drug Abuse, the U.S. Department of Education, and the Maine Juvenile Justice Advisory Group. He consults extensively to families, general and special education schools, inpatient and residential facilities, and systems of juvenile detention, and lectures widely throughout the world.

Learning Outcomes

    • Identify and prioritize unsolved problems precipitating challenging behavior
    • Summarize the three basic mechanisms by which adults handle unsolved problems and unmet expectations in children and what is accomplished by each
    • Apply the CPS method to solve problems, teach skills, and reduce the frequency and intensity of challenging behavior
