  • Social skills

 

New Strategies for Kids With:

 

  • ADHD
  • ODD & Conduct disorder
  • Depression
  • Bipolar Disorder

Utilize Dr. Greene's "Plan B" to reduce challenging behaviors by

 

  • Solving problems collaboratively
  • Creating a "helping relationship"
  • Pursuing behavioral expectations
  • Teaching skills

 

We continue to struggle with and lose an astounding number of kids with social, emotional and behavioral challenges, because we handle them in ways that don't work. They end up in detention and suspension, dropping out, on the streets, in restrictive therapeutic facilities and jail. All because we have a poor understanding of why they're challenging and apply interventions that are punitive and obsolete.

 

Research in the neurosciences over the past 30 years has helped us understand that challenging behavior is a form of developmental delay. In other words, challenging kids lack crucial cognitive skills related to flexibility, adaptability, frustration tolerance and problem solving. Dr. Greene's compassionate, effective, evidence-based approach--Collaborative Problem Solving-- is a departure from conventional wisdom and reflects what we now know about challenging kids and how to help them.

 

Dr. Greene is a leading authority on challenging behavior and will revolutionize your approach to working with Explosive, Noncompliant, Disruptive, Aggressive Kids. His humorous, engaging and dynamic style along with the use of case studies and demonstrations will help you better understand challenging kids, better assess their needs and intervene in ways that actually help.
