Helping Behaviourally Challenged Kids: Shifting from Power and Control to Collaboration and Skills

Ross Greene, PhD
presented by Leading Edge Seminars

Multi-Faith Centre/Koffler House, 569 Spadina Ave, Toronto, ON M5S 2J7
9 am to 4:40 pm

It’s true: you reap what you sow. If we handle kids with power and control, that’s what we get back. What happens if we collaborate with them — as partners — instead?

Ross Greene developed the Collaborative and Proactive Solutions (CPS) model of care so that mental health professionals, educators, and caregivers can more directly address the underlying factors that contribute to behavioural difficulties. Children exhibit challenging behaviour when the demands being placed upon them outweigh the skills they have to respond adaptively to those demands. (The same can be said of adults.) Instead of placing the emphasis on psychiatric diagnoses or the misbehaviour — whether it’s whining, sulking, withdrawing, screaming, swearing, hitting, spitting, or biting — CPS focuses on identifying the skills that are lacking and the expectations that are not being met. Rather than trying to modify behaviour through reward and punishment, CPS seeks to help kids and caregivers solve these problems, thereby reducing the incidence of challenging behaviour.

The CPS model is non-punitive and non-adversarial. Evidence shows that the model decreases the likelihood of conflict, enhances relationships, and improves communication. In addition, CPS helps kids and adults learn and display skills on the more positive side of human nature, such as empathy, appreciating how one’s behaviour is affecting others, resolving disagreements in ways that do not involve conflict, taking another’s perspective, and honesty.

In this two-day advanced training, Ross Greene will describe, demonstrate, and discuss key facets of the CPS model, provide video examples of how it is applied, and give you the latest updates on best practices. No prerequisites are required for this training.

You will learn —

• About the key themes of the CPS model and how these themes offer insight into the treatment of kids with social, emotional, and behavioural problems
• How to identify and assess the cognitive skills that are central to adaptively handling social, emotional, and behavioural challenges
• How to identify and prioritize unsolved problems that precipitate misbehaviour
• About three basic options that adults can use to handle unsolved problems and unmet expectations in kids and what is accomplished by each option
• The three steps to the problem-solving process that reduce the frequency of challenging behaviour and teach lagging skills

This workshop may be eligible for Continuing Education Credits/Units (CECs/CEUs) by professional organizations in Canada/Ontario serving mental health professionals. Please click here for more information.
