Special Event: “Lives in the Balance”
January 30, 2017 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Presented by Ross Greene, PhD
Dr. Ross Greene, author of “The Explosive Child” and “Lost at School” and originator of the Collaborative Problem Solving (CPS) approach, will speak about his time-tested, research-based CPS model. Dr. Greene’s model is highly effective with kids who are often described as “challenging,” “angry,” “defiant,” and “oppositional.” If you’re a parent, foster parent, grandparent, caregiver, or educator and are worried about a child who is described this way, please consider attending this free event. Dr. Greene’s research-based model may provide you with the strategies and support you need to help these kids in ways that are compassionate and effective. Attendance at this special workshop may assist you in educating yourself and others about the true factors contributing to kids’ behavioral challenges….about why time-outs, detentions, suspensions, expulsions, restraints, and locked-door seclusion often make things worse (and help you learn about what to do instead). Sounds hopeful, right?
A Certificate of Attendance with two educational contact hours will be provided to attendees after completion of an evaluation form.
