The Balanced Mind Parent Network Chat with Dr. Ross Greene, Author of "The Explosive Child"

Dr. Greene is the author of The Explosive Child, co-author ofTreating Explosive Kids: The Collaborative Problem Solving Approach, and has a new book, Lost at School: Why Our Kids with Behavioral Challenges Are Falling Through the Cracks and How We Can Help Them.              

Nanci - The Balanced Mind Parent Network  
Dr. Greene, before we start taking questions, could you talk a little about your new book? In particular, the concept of Collaborative Problem Solving and Plans A, B and C? I realize that is probably broader than what can be covered in a session but it might help give our members a 'sneak peak' to the book. 

Ross Greene PhD  
Well, a lot of folks have been asking about how the model I described in The Explosive Child could be applied in schools. Kids with behavioral challenges tend to be misunderstood anyway, and school is an especially challenging place to address their needs. But I've implemented the CPS model in many schools, so I know it can be done. The book -- Lost at School -- is about how to do it.
