Come learn about Dr. Greene’s empirically-supported Collaborative & Proactive Solutions (CPS) model that transformed thinking and practices in countless schools, inpatient psychiatry units, and residential and juvenile detention facilities. It has been associated with dramatic reductions in disciplinary referrals, detentions, suspensions, seclusions, and restraints. No longer discipline-as-usual, the CPS model focuses on solving problems rather than on modifying behavior, emphasizes collaborative rather than unilateral solutions, and encourages proactive rather than reactive intervention. Discover what makes challenging kids challenging and how to identify and develop lagging skills, while building empathy and constructive, problem-solving communication with your children. Ross W. Greene, Ph.D. is the originator of the model of intervention now known as Collaborative & Proactive Solutions (CPS) and author of the influential books The Explosive Child and Lost at School. He is also the Founding Director of the non-profit Lives in the Balance (, which aims to disseminate his model through no-cost web-based programming and provide support to and advocacy on behalf of behaviorally challenging kids and their parents, teachers, and other caregivers. Dr. Greene served on the faculty at Harvard Medical School for over 20 years, and is now on the faculty of the Department of Psychology at Virginia Tech and he lectures widely throughout the world.

  1. Wonderful opportunity for all educational staff; teachers, educational support personnel, administrators, psychologists, parents and even students. I hope it gets good exposure and everyone comes out to listen.

    I have a sense that any discussion of individualized learning has the attention of private education, but not so much for public education. Why is public education not buying into this model, at least in a very initial phase?

  2. Thanks for your comment, Bill. We are hoping for good attendance by all kinds of educators and are glad for both hcpss And GCS support.
