Advanced Training in Collaborative & Proactive Solutions: Understanding and Helping Behaviorally Challenging Students
A 2-day Institute with Dr. Ross Greene
Dates: April 5 & 6, 2018; 8:30 registration 9:00-3:30 (light breakfast and lunch included) Location: Trader Duke’s Hotel, formally DoubleTree
Dr. Ross Greene’s evidence-based, empirically-supported CPS model – as described in his books Lost at School and Lost & Found — has a track record for dramatically reducing discipline referrals, detentions, and suspensions, improving student behavior, and improving relationships and communication. The model represents a shift away from modifying behaviors and toward solving the problems that are causing that behavior. And the problem solving is collaborative and proactive rather than unilateral and reactive. It’s the future of school discipline…but it’s happening already in countless schools across the world.
Participants in this workshop will leave with an understanding of the underpinnings of the model, along with practical assessment and intervention tools that can be brought back to their schools.
The Assessment of Lagging Skills and Unsolved Problems (ALSUP)
Practice and Feedback: Using the ALSUP
Overview of The Three Plans
Overview of Plan B
Plan B Video, Practice, and Feedback
Implementation in Schools and with Nonverbal Youth
At the conclusion of the workshop, participants will be able to:
• Describe how different explanations for and interpretations of challenging behavior in kids can lead to dramatically different approaches to intervention, and why conventional reward and punishment procedures may not be effective for many challenging kids.
• Identify and assess the various cognitive skills that are central to adaptively handling life’s social, emotional, and behavioral challenges
• Identify and prioritize unsolved problems precipitating challenging behavior
• Describe the three basic mechanisms by which adults handle unsolved problems and unmet expectations in kids (Plans A, B, and C) and what is accomplished by each, and the three steps or “ingredients” of Plan B
• Describe how to effectively implement Plan B to solve problems, teach skills, and reduce the frequency and intensity of challenging behavior
