The Explosive Child: Non-compliant, Disruptive, Disenfranchised Kids – Moving from Modifying Behavior to Solving Problems Collaboratively
Presented by Ross Greene, Ph.D.

Workshop Description Educators, parents, and mental healthy clinicians are increasingly challenged to understand and help kids with social, emotional, and behavioral difficulties. These kids are at tremendous risk for adverse long-term outcomes, and their behavior can significantly impact life at home and in the classroom. . Dr. Ross Greene’s model – as described in his influential books The Explosive Child and Lost at School, and now called Collaborative & Proactive Solutions (CPS) – helps adults and kids collaboratively solve the problems precipitating challenging behavior, while simultaneously teaching lagging skills. The empirically supported CPS model represents a dramatic departure from conventional wisdom and practice, and has been found to be effective in a vast array of setting, including families (where it has been shown to significantly reduce family conflict and improve parent-child interactions), general and special education schools (where it dramatically reduced discipline referrals, detentions, and suspensions), and inpatient, residential, and juvenile detention facilities (where it has produced significant reductions in recidivism and in the use of restraint and locked-door seclusion). Participants in this workshop will leave with an understanding of the underpinnings of the model, along with practical assessment and intervention tools that can be brought back to and used in these diverse settings.
