“It’s never too late to have a happy childhood.” - Dr. Ross Greene
Childhood can be difficult for kids to navigate. Explosive, disruptive and emotional behaviors are sometimes the only ways kids can tell us that they are struggling to adapt to the pressures of childhood. Challenging behavior is communication that clinicians must recognize - it is the child’s way of saying “I am lacking the skills to handle certain demands and expectations that are being placed on me.” So how do you help both the child and the parents experience positive, lasting results that get to the root cause of the challenging behaviors?
You treat the child and the parents as teammates in the solution, and you do it in a collaborative/proactive way using Dr. Greene’s proven Collaborative and Proactive Solutions (CPS) model. The CPS model is laid out in a series of 5 session types that get to root of the problem, rather than waiting for that unsolved problem to manifest as a challenging behavior. Learn how to be an effective clinician in each of the session types:
Dr. Greene uses his expertise and experience to break down each of these sessions in a way that makes them easy to implement into your practice. Video demonstrations and instruction before and after each demonstration bring to life the important components of the CPS model. The CPS model has been widely implemented in outpatient settings, general and special education schools, and inpatient, residential, and juvenile detention facilities, often with dramatic effect.
Start including both the children as well as the parents in coming to collaborative solutions to challenging problems!
