Dr. Ross Greene is the originator of the Collaborative & Proactive Solutions model, or CPS, that helps teachers and parents better handle behaviorally challenging kids in the classroom and at home through the implementation of his approach to solving problems collaboratively.
He is going to share with you the practical strategies to enact the CPS model, which he has shared with thousands of families.
I was very impressed by how Dr. Greene breaks down the ways of fostering collaboration and empathy to inspire change for all children (especially the most vulnerable ones).
While we know that teen-aged children, especially those with ADHD, often show some challenging behavior, it’s important to remember that sometimes they cannot help their behavior.
Dr. Greene’s presentation will explore current research regarding the Collaborative & Proactive Solutions (CPS) model and how it can foster a collaborative partnership between adults and kids and engage kids in solving the problems that affect their lives.
We will discuss and practice ways to solve your child’s problems collaboratively, so they can be fully invested in solving the problems, the solutions are more durable, and over time increase their confidence in learning the skills they were lacking all along.
We will also practice some of the evidence-based Assessment of Lagging Skills and Unsolved Problems instrument. By the end of it, you will have the resources and tools needed to implement the CPS model for your middle-school-aged child.
