In today’s podcast, I have a conversation with Dr. Ross Greene who is the originator of a model of psychosocial treatment for challenging kids called Collaborative Problem Solving (CPS). He has written two books about this subject called "The Explosive Child" and "Lost at School". Dr. Greene is an Associate Clinical Professor in the Department of Psychiatry at Harvard Medical School, he is on the professional staff in the Department of Psychology at the Cambridge Health Alliance, he is an adjunct Associate Professor in the Department of Psychology at Virginia Tech, and Senior Lecturer in the school psychology program in the Department of Education at Tufts University. Dr. Greene is also the founder of a non-profit organization – called Lives in the Balance – which aims to provide advocacy and support for behaviorally challenging kids and their parents, teachers, and other caregivers, and to disseminate the CPS model through no-cost web-based programming. He consults extensively to general and special education schools, inpatient and residential facilities, and systems of juvenile detention, and lectures widely throughout the world.
