Course Description

New Featured Event with Nationally Prominent Expert, Ross Greene!

In this one day featured presentation, Dr. Ross Greene will describe his Collaborative and Proactive Solutions (CPS) model, which provides a compassionate understanding of kids' behavioral challenges and a non-adversarial, effective approach for reducing challenging behavior, improving communication, and repairing relationships. This model has been implemented in schools, inpatient units, residential facilities, treatment programs, and juvenile detention facilities.

For those new to Dr. Greene's model, the morning session will provide an introduction to the key themes of the Collaborative and Proactive Solutions PS model, including assessment instrumentation (using the Assessment of Lagging Skills and Unsolved Problems [ALSUP]), and the Plans framework. 

In the afternoon, Dr. Greene will go into detail about using the ALSUP and will provide in-depth coverage of Plan B (solving problems collaboratively), accompanied by video examples and guided practice.
