DVD - Collaborative & Proactive Solutions for Challenging Kids: A 5-Session Approach to Stop Behavioral Difficulties
Volatile, reactive, and high-conflict families have worked with multiple therapists by the time they get to you. These families challenge the skills of even the most seasoned therapist. The parents are frustrated that things haven’t improved, and the kids are tired of showing up for therapy appointments.
Internationally renowned psychologist and New York Times bestselling author Dr. Ross Greene –the originator of the Collaborative & Proactive Solutions (CPS) model, as described in his books The Explosive Child, Lost at School, Lost & Found, and the recently released Raising Human Beings – will transform your approach with these most challenging families. In this unique video series, see Dr. Greene’s effective, empirically-supported CPS model in action.
In real sessions, watch Dr. Greene help actual parents and kids solve the problems that contribute to challenging episodes, rather than simply modifying the behaviours that kids exhibit in response to those problems. Dr. Greene masterfully describes and utilizes the key elements of his CPS model, and then steps back and explains the crucial strategies that make this model an effective approach to therapy. In addition, you will learn how to utilize Dr. Greene’s Assessment of Lagging Skills and Unsolved Problems, which sets the stage for and organizes your approach to helping families solve problems together. Dr. Greene shares his methodology for solving problems collaboratively, complete with extensive video examples of each step.
Dr. Greene’s empirically supported CPS model will help transform angry, explosive and punitive interactions between family members into collaborative and supportive exchanges in which problems can be solved and relationships rebuilt. By incorporating Dr. Greene’s CPS approach in your practise, you will not only improve kids’ behaviour but also improve parent-child communication. Families will learn the problem-solving and emotion-regulation skills they’re often lacking. But the CPS model doesn’t just help kids and families…it will help you feel a renewed sense of passion and confidence when working with the most at-risk kids and families.
Ross W. Greene, Ph.D., consults extensively to families, general and special education schools, inpatient and residential facilities, and systems of juvenile detention, and lectures widely throughout the world. Dr. Greene is the originator of an empirically supported model of psychosocial treatment for challenging kids now called Collaborative & Proactive Solutions (CPS). He is the author of the highly-acclaimed books The Explosive Child, Lost at School and Raising Human Beings, as well as numerous articles, chapters and scientific papers on the effectiveness of the CPS model, the classification of and outcomes in youth with social, emotional and behavioural challenges and student-teacher compatibility. He was on the faculty at Harvard Medical School for over 20 years and is now the Founding Director of the non-profit Lives in the Balance (www.livesinthebalance.org) and on the adjunct faculty in the Department of Psychology at Virginia Tech and at the University of Technology in Sydney, Australia.
