Dr. Greene originated the Collaborative & Proactive Solutions. He is also the author of several influential books including the recently released, Raising Human Beings. During this webinar, Dr. Greene will share:
1.) How parents and caregivers can move away from focusing on challenging behaviors and attempting to modifying them and move towards identifying the problems that are causing the behaviors and solving the problems as the best way to change the challenging behaviors.
2.) How to achieve better results by approaching problem solving with the child in a proactive, collaborative and planned way instead of attempting to impose unilateral solutions.
3.) How to teach important, positive attributes and life skills including:
• Empathy • Appreciating how one’s behavior is affecting others
• Resolving disagreements without conflict
• Appreciating another’s perspective
• Honesty Dr. Greene’s approach is based on the empirically-supported Collaborative & Proactive Solutions (CPS) model which best known for helping kids with social, emotional, and behavioral challenges, but works well for all children.
