SESSION 1: Ross Greene PhD | Tools & Strategies for Our Bright, Behaviorally Challenging Kids

Talk Description, Speaker Bio, and Resources

Dr. Ross Greene dives right in giving us insight into his proven model for collaboratively and proactively identifying and solving our 2e children’s most challenging behaviors. His transformational model for understanding behavior as a symptom of unmet expectations and unsolved problems, followed by collaborative problem solving that is realistic and mutually satisfactory, will change how we think about and approach difficulties with our 2e kids. He talks specifically about challenges we see with our bright and quirky kids, from impulsivity and defiance to sensory issues, and how his model specifically applies to their unique lives. He ends by sharing how we can advocate for our kids needs in schools with the greatest chance of success.
