Collaborative Problem Solving

Dr. Ross Greene was the last speaker of the CSC Speaker Series held in the Boston area in 2010.  He talked about using his collaborative problem solving (CPS) approach with children with behavioral, emotional and social challenges.  I find it immensely compassionate and very effective.

Seeing the World Through a Child’s Eyes

What does it mean to try and promote a shift in awareness in how we educate, treat, care for, parent, and minister to children who receive the special needs labels from the deficit model to the whole child model.
