Ross W. Greene, Ph.D. Associate Professor in the Department of Psychiatry, Harvard Medical School.
Dr. Greene is the orginator of the Collaborative Problem Solving (CPS) Approach and author of the recently released book, Lost at School: Why Our Most Valuable, At-Risk Kids Still Fall Through The Cracks and How We Can Help Them. He is also author of the highly acclaimed book, The Explosive Child, along with a third book, Treating Explosive Kids: The Collaborative Problem Solving Approach.
The Collaborative Problem Solving (CPS) Approach proposes that challenging behavior is a form of developmental delay and the by-product of lagging cognitive skills. The CPS Approach improves the cognitive skills needed to reduce the challenging behaviors. The approach is a dramatic departure from conventional practice and is highly effective in families, schools, group homes, inpatient, residential, and juvenile detention facilities. Participants will leave with an understanding of the CPS approach and practical assessment and intervention tools that can be used in diverse settings.
