Event Description

Dr. Greene provides an alternative conceptualization of the difficulties of these children and adolescents; namely, that their difficulties are a byproduct of lacking cognitive skills in the domains of flexibility/adaptability, frustration tolerance, and problem-solving. Based on this conceptualization, he provides an overview of a model of treatment called Collaborative Problem Solving (CPS), first articulated in his acclaimed book, The Explosive Child. The CPS model helps adults teach these lacking cognitive skills while reducing the frequency and intensity of explosive/noncompliant episodes. Dr. Greene will present research documenting the effectiveness of the CPS model in outpatient and inpatient populations and in juvenile detention facilities.
