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.

Greene, Ph.D., is the originator of the innovative, evidence-based approach called Collaborative & Proactive Solutions (CPS), as described in his influential books The Explosive Child, Lost at School, Lost & Found, and Raising Human Beings. Dr. Greene was on the faculty at Harvard Medical School for over 20 years, and is now Founding Director of the non-profit Lives in the Balance. He is adjunct Associate Professor in the Department of Psychology at Virginia Tech and adjunct Professor in the Faculty of Science at the University of Technology in Sydney, Australia.

    I found Barry Prizant so helpful. Not a lot of new material, but presented and explained in such a helpful way. There’s a lot of debate on whether my kid is or is not on the spectrum, as his autistic symptoms could be his other Quirks. I still found the idea that Behaviour is Communication helpful as well as the tools we already use. I should probably have a “Behaviour is Communication” tattoo on my hand to remind me to pause and really dig deep and ask Why.

  2. Karen on February 5, 2019 at 11:50 pm

    Dr Laura, I have read your book Calm Parents, Happy Siblings, and it’s the most insightful book on the topic. I wish I discovered it before their sibling relationships deteriorated. I hope you can shed some light on how to help siblings accept their bright and quirky siblings in all the rivalry, jealousy, and living day-in day-out with their at times explosive temper and unstoppable nature.

  3. Katy on February 5, 2019 at 7:45 pm

    Wonderful set of talks.

    I have read a lot written by Ross Greene and appreciate hearing him talk.

    Laura Markham was a new treasure for me! I listened to her talk more than once and am ordering books by her tomorrow!

  4. Lucy T on February 5, 2019 at 2:35 pm

    Thankyou. Listening to the conference speakers over the past week has been a real gift. I wish this conference was compulsory CPD for school leaders/ department of education/ children’s commissioner! Please market yourselves world wide, in the UK, to increase knowledge of how compassion and empathy are badly needed by challenging, bright and quirky kids.
    A follow up project I’d love to see you all colloborate on is School based trauma – prevention and therapy. ?

  5. Brittany Mata on February 5, 2019 at 8:26 am

    Would love to see Susan Stiffelman involved as a speaker as well!!

  6. Karen Scott on February 4, 2019 at 11:26 am

    The Summit has been amazing for me. THANKYOU FOR THE WISDOM INSIGHTS AND LIFE RESEARCH OF YOUR CONTRIBUTORS. I have 2 grandchildren on the high functioning autism spectrum . And 2 of my 6 children had diagnoses in their 30s. So the wider family deal with many challenges on a daily basis despite the high achievements and personal victories. I am 63 and am thankful for common sense parenting in the70s but am so grateful for all this resarch as we gain tools as a family to have flourishing children. I am about to embark on a new adventure at the Forest School OrewaNew Zealand to support the amazing founders and parents of some very bright and quirky kids.

  7. Anna on February 1, 2019 at 9:24 am

    I love the positive, life affirming guidance these talks provide. These ideas and tools work for all humans 🙂
    Thank you so much for pulling this together, and sharing it. This is vital and an amazing gift for our society.

  8. Dana on January 31, 2019 at 12:42 pm

    I swear these experts know my daughter personally (and know what I’ve done/tried/want to try). It’s an ‘a-ha’ moment for me every couple of minutes! I love the practical real-life tips especially. Thank you so much!

  9. Monica on January 31, 2019 at 8:13 am

    This summit is amazing. All this information will be so helpful for me in my work in the schools, helping teachers and admins understand 2e kiddos!!

  10. Kristin Kilby on January 31, 2019 at 7:47 am

    Listening to Ross Greene speak has reduced me to tears. 5 years ago I made the grave mistake of approaching the classroom teacher with the CPS process, which we had tried and found great success with at home. It was harshly shut down, resulting in a toxic environment for my child. How I wish I could go back in time, with this advice.

  11. Jessica Rosenberg on January 30, 2019 at 2:16 pm

    I loved this talk! What I truly appreciate the most is expressing true compassion for the exhausted, stressed out parent. Acknowledging it is hard, what one might be thinking in the heat of the moment and then providing real, doable ideas about how to help the parent rethink their strategy. I noted laughter, 1:1 time, mindfulness practices, parent burnout as highlights for me. Thank you!!!

  12. Julie Johndreau on January 30, 2019 at 10:03 am

    Thank you, thank you, thank you! I’ve followed many of these experts for the last few years, but have still found new gems of wisdom in these talks. I have sticky notes with “a-ha” moments and memorable quotes piling up. This is great! Inspirational! I’m a better parent already.

  13. Renuka Coghlan on January 30, 2019 at 9:09 am

    Just tuned in to the interviews with Dr Barry Prizan and Dr Laura Kirkham. Thank you once again for the wealth of information and helpful advice.
    The summit so far has been excellent and I look forward to sharing what I have learnt with members of my family.

    • Debbie Steinberg-Kuntz on January 30, 2019 at 2:30 pm

      Thanks, Renuka. So glad you’re finding it helpful!

  14. on January 30, 2019 at 7:13 am

    Loved Laura Markham… great reminders. I’ve tried these techniques and they do work, of course, with a little extra effort. We could definitely use more laughter here some times.

    • Debbie Steinberg-Kuntz on January 30, 2019 at 2:31 pm

      Cortney, Yes! More laughter is so important!! And self care!

  15. on January 30, 2019 at 12:17 am

    I am loving this summit! Already getting so much more than I predicted. The speakers passion & knowledge is so inspiring.

  16. Debbie DuBois on January 29, 2019 at 11:47 pm

    I have found that listening to this Summit, has helped me realize the methods I have used in my son’s 19 years. Why some work great and others were not so great.
    At first I didn’t understand why he didn’t like change so we did conditioning but still change was hard.
    I learned that all behavior is communication.
    Thanks for offering this Summit. I look forward to the next few days.

  17. Laura on January 29, 2019 at 9:22 pm

    Resource from Session 1 from his website I found hard to find, but here it is:

  18. Wendy on January 29, 2019 at 8:49 pm

    Day 2: I Enjoyed all of today’s speakers. So much helpful information.

  19. on January 29, 2019 at 8:19 pm

    I’m enjoying Day 2 but it saddens me when I see experts not-so-subtly bash ABA as if parents need to take sides with therapeutic approaches too. We do ABA-VB and my therapists are incredibly sensitive towards my son and are the first people to say “let’s find out why” when he develops new behaviors. It is not compliance first all the time and in all situations. If your ABA provider is insisting on that, similar to what we say about schools, it’s not the right provider, find a new one.

  20. Laraine on January 29, 2019 at 7:39 pm

    This summit is the best online summit I have had the pleasure to attend. The caliber of expertise is amazing. The content so specific and spot on. I am a teacher of young gifted children. I am fortunate enough to teach at a progressive school who practices much of what has been said here. How wonderful to have such a rich resource for anyone who works with these amazing kids!

  21. M. McDaniel on January 29, 2019 at 6:50 pm

    Thank you so much for this!! I’be only watched Day 4 but I really needed to hear this!! Parenting is hard and having a child that is bright and quirky kid takes everything to the next level.

  22. Helen on January 29, 2019 at 5:50 pm

    I am an Educational Assistant within the Canadian school system, and found Dr. Ross Greene’s talk extremely helpful and insightful! I have worked with many children with unique exceptionalities. I have always put the child first, but will show more empathy and understanding towards their “unsolved problems.” Thank you Dr. Greene for a wonderful presentation!!

  23. Jessica Anarde on January 29, 2019 at 5:27 pm

    Just finished the interview with Barry Prizant – thank you! I wish more professionals were SCERTS certified. His vision aligns with the autistic community and provides real support tools.

    • Debbie Steinberg-Kuntz on January 30, 2019 at 2:33 pm

      Agreed, Jessica. I’m so excited, I’ll be doing the SCERTS training with Barry this Spring. Such good stuff! I will report highlights back to the IdeaLab peeps, and Barry is also happy to do more parent training with us in the ‘lab.’

  24. on January 29, 2019 at 5:19 pm

    I always love Dr. Barry Prizant’s interviews. His book uniquely human really helped me become a better speech therapist in working with students with Autism. All of the other speakers were brilliant as well. Great tips to used with my students!

    • Debbie Steinberg-Kuntz on January 30, 2019 at 2:38 pm

      So glad, Victoria! So glad Barry was able to share his perspective with us. His talk in day 3 on getting school supports is also very informative.

  25. Dee on January 29, 2019 at 5:09 pm

    Wow! Perfect timing, Day 2 videos. Dealing with transition to Year 9 for my ASD son, and these videos have been great! For giving me ideas for both my son and myself during what is a stressful time. Thank you so much for all this wonderful advice 🙂

  26. Linda Mattos on January 29, 2019 at 4:57 pm

    I have really enjoyed the informational. I look forward to tommarow. Thank you.

  27. Erin McCullough on January 29, 2019 at 4:44 pm

    Another amazing day! So very thankful for this summit! Thanks YOU!!

  28. Rev. Penelope on January 29, 2019 at 4:41 pm

    My husband and I are grandparents to a beautiful bright and quirky child and we came to the summit with the hope of gaining new tools to help us understand, support, and potentially help advocate for our beloved grandson. We have been saddened and concerned by some of the antiquated methods we’ve observed being used in behavior modification for children like our grandson. Example: our grandson needs recess and opportunities to move his body and we were told that his time outside was being rescinded as a punishment for “problematic” behaviors.
    I wish ALL educators, school support personnel, parents and families could see these presenters so that their horizon of possibilities could be expanded and hope restored. For our grandson, I hope that his native enthusiasm for learning can be fired up again. Shame has no place in the classrooms of today. Thanks for bringing this learning opportunity to learn and grow.

  29. Carlene on January 29, 2019 at 4:07 pm

    Day 2 of the summit has been so very uplifting for me. Such a wealth of knowledge shared. Thank you for today, it was a great help many Aha moments!

    • Debbie Steinberg-Kuntz on January 30, 2019 at 2:39 pm

      Thanks, Carlene. So glad you found it uplifting. Knowledge is power!

  30. Celeste Sterling on January 29, 2019 at 3:49 pm

    Really interesting talks, I stayed up late listening to the first round. Thanks for making them available for a time for no cost.

  31. Kristine on January 29, 2019 at 3:40 pm

    I am loving these talks! Thank you so much for the professional insight being provided! I want to share this with all my teaching colleagues!

    • Sara Nied on January 30, 2019 at 6:26 am

      Thank you, Kristy, for being here, we are so happy you are enjoying the talks. We’d love for you to share with your teaching colleagues! I do the same at the school I work at, and the teachers are always so grateful for the greater understanding of some of their toughest kiddos.

  32. Linda mattos on January 29, 2019 at 3:35 pm

    I am learning so much i find very helpful

  33. on January 29, 2019 at 3:04 pm

    Thank you so much for all your expertise and advice. Really loving the summit.

    • Debbie Steinberg-Kuntz on January 30, 2019 at 2:40 pm

      So glad you’re loving it, Katrina. More good stuff coming your way…

  34. Chere Force on January 29, 2019 at 2:06 pm

    Ross Greene PhD interview. (Dr Greene is my rock star for parenting help! Woot!)
    Figure out those lagging skills. Yes! The behavior is the symptom/red flag, not the actual issue. Help the kid by discovering the missing skills.
    Start: Make a list of unsolved problems. I notice X – what’s up. So helpful !
    Thank you for all your shared tools! So very very helpful.

    Carol Kranowitz MA interview.
    Love the additional sensory systems – makes so much sense!
    Scrunching and Stretching to help regain attention – yes!
    Weighted bags. T Stools. Exercise Balls for seating. Exercise Bands. Pressing on the wall. Great ideas for fidgety kids.
    Help them own their own learning issues. They are okay as they are but we are all different.
    Thank you!

    Laura Markham PhD (loved you last year! love you this year! Thank you!)
    Start with acknowledging their issue – hearing them – (with calm) is your best friend with our 0-60 meltdown kid. Reconnect first with calm. Resolve after.
    5min meditations. Sharing love as you walk. Antidote “choose love” meditations. Wow! So good.
    Teach when the iron is COLD! LOL
    Wow – we do have the ticking-time-bomb feeling in our home! Okay – remember to help with ALL transitions/Every day. I need to slow down.
    Laugh first! yes! Before we go into a typical struggle-time, laugh! Then set the timer – let the kid be in control. Keep it short. Laugh/move. Repeat. I get it!
    Connect. Connect. Connect. Focus on – appreciate – the wonderful things our kid brings to us.
    So good. So very very good. Thank you! <3

  35. Alexandra on January 29, 2019 at 12:34 pm

    This is so helpful and enlightening for me as I deal with SPD and an ADHD diagnosis for my 8 year old.

  36. Deepa on January 29, 2019 at 8:07 pm

    Is there going to be talk that addresses 2e kids who are well aware of their disability but have no internal motivation to do anything about it?

  37. Karina on January 29, 2019 at 7:56 pm

    I can’t pick a favourite! I am learning SO MUCH from ALL these videos. thanks

    • Debbie Steinberg-Kuntz on January 30, 2019 at 2:42 pm

      Thanks, Karina. You can probably understand why I love interviewing these folks. It fills my heart and mind!

  38. Jennifer Draheim on January 29, 2019 at 7:30 pm

    Really enjoying all of these talks! As a parent and an educator these have been very informative!
    Thank you!

  39. on January 29, 2019 at 6:36 pm

    Laura, this is miracle level advice. Thank you! I just had the thought that I can’t wait till my kids start fighting tonight so I can practice these strategies! Thank you for reminding me about the power of love and kindness and intention. It IS a long haul, but it is worth it.

  40. on January 29, 2019 at 6:00 pm

    Great information.

    • Sara nied on January 30, 2019 at 3:35 pm

      So much brilliance all in one “place”!

  41. Lisa on January 29, 2019 at 5:58 pm

    I would love bulleted lists of important main topics as I listen. I am taking notes but sometimes I can’t exactly figure out what a word is (interception) or don’t realize that something will become a major topic. This will help us 2e parents. 🙂

    Also, I appreciate the double screen when interviewing instead of going back and forth.

    So much good information today! Thank you.

    I have shared this resource with many as our city is under a COLD day home from school today and tomorrow!!

    • Debbie Steinberg-Kuntz on January 29, 2019 at 7:00 pm

      Hi Lisa, FYI, not sure if you know about the option to print out transcripts so you can follow along and highlight important things. For people logged in with the all access pass, they see buttons under each talk for audio download, video download and transcript download.

  42. Sariah Morgan on January 29, 2019 at 5:37 pm

    I want to be Ross Greene when I grow up!! I look forward to using more of his skills with my students!

    • Debbie Steinberg-Kuntz on January 30, 2019 at 2:43 pm

      Ha! Yes, Sariah, he is so articulate and wise!

  43. Mike on January 29, 2019 at 5:34 pm

    EXCELLENT!

    • Sara nied on January 30, 2019 at 3:32 pm

      So happy you’re enjoying the summit!

  44. Lauren on January 29, 2019 at 5:31 pm

    Loving day #2 so far! I am so grateful to be reminded by Ross Greene that consequences don’t solve our child’s behavior problem in the long run. It is focused on the wrong thing! It was helpful to hear about how to incorporate the adult concerns into the collaborative problem solving process without taking over, preserving our kid’s ownership in the solution.
    And can I please implant Laura Markham into my brain? She is who I want to channel, with words and tone, when my tank runs low. Her advice about how to reduce stress hormones at homework time is very valuable. Her reminder that the relationship is the most important thing, and usually the cure in those tough times. I am doing that list about the things I love about my child to have handy!
    Thank you for providing all of this outstanding content. I have never seen so much relevant information to me and my child in one place. This is so needed, and I am looking forward to checking out the IdeaLab to keep it going.

    • Sara Nied on January 30, 2019 at 6:29 am

      Thank you, Lauren, so glad to hear that you are enjoying the Summit. And thank you for sharing some of your insights from today – I couldn’t agree more! We’d love to see you in the IdeaLab for continued conversation, learning, and support!

  45. Luigi Montepietra on January 29, 2019 at 5:27 pm

    I will be 80 years old this year. During my years in elementary school, my mother told me I was dumb and not as smart as the other kids. In high school, I improved to being just lazy and unmotivated. By college, I was an underachiever and lacked confidence. All of this must have been true because they were my mother’s words and what mother would say things like this if she didn’t love her son. Dr. Dan Siegel and Dr. Devon MacEachron, where were you when I needed you?

    I served in the Army and went into the work force. Only then did I find out that I was reasonably smart. I married and had a daughter. When she was seven, she was exhibiting the same issues in school that I had had as a child, but now, for her, there was professional help. Helping my daughter, my age then 35, I found out that there had been a reason for my trauma. I was ADHD and dyslexic, but now clearly understood that I wasn’t any of those negative things I was convinced I was. Finally, freedom!

    Today, almost 45 years later, the ADHD is still present but I’m in charge of that beautiful monster. I’ve had a marvelous business career as an out-of-the-box thinker who trained himself to focus and deliver. For the dyslexia, I’ve got spellcheck.

    To Debbie Steinberg-Kuntz, thank you for creating this summit. Hopefully, many parents and children around the world will not have to go through the mental and emotional pain that I did, thanks to you.

    • Sara nied on January 30, 2019 at 3:23 pm

      Luigi, your story is beautiful and I am honored that you shared it. What a journey you’ve had from self-doubt and feeling shamed, to being “in charge of that beautiful monster”. I so love the way you phrase that. Like you so perfectly illustrated, even though we might continue to have challenges through life, having an understanding of our challenges and the right set of strategies to compensate where needed (spellcheck!), and a career built on strengths, is a powerful recipe for success. Incredible! Your daughter is so lucky to have you.

      Thank you for your kind words, and we share the exact same hope for the future.

  46. Sara nied on January 29, 2019 at 5:07 pm

    Welcome to Day 2 of the Summit! We hope everyone enjoyed Day 1 and that you’re geared up for another big day of learning. We absolutely love reading through your introductions and comments from Day 1, each one of them makes the entire Summit worth it all on its own. Please keep your comments, aha moments, and insights coming, we love to hear from you all over the world!

  47. Karina on January 29, 2019 at 4:54 pm

    Finally finished Day 1 just now… My days are generally hectic. (See why I bought All access?)
    I enjoyed all the talks for the day. They were all wonderful… there were many notes taken, and I learbed of many new ways to see and do things.
    I was hoping I would find out a little more about parenting an Aspie as well as a 2e child when I am, myself, probably both. There is so little information on that…as I navigate parenting and learn to adapt to my kids’ quirks, I rediscover my own as I see them in them, and I see that they now have a name and should have been paid more attention to; when and where I was a child none of these diagnoses existed. Anyways, on to day two, it looks even more amazing if such a thing is possible! My 2e kid has sensory issues as well as a great deal of emotional intensity, as do I. Thanks!

    • Karina on January 29, 2019 at 4:55 pm

      Sorry for the typos, I am watching these videos as I work out on my elliptical machine haha. I need the exercise and I learn better this way!

  48. Kim on January 29, 2019 at 4:52 pm

    I find myself being brought to tears as I listen. The days are long but the years are short. Thank you for giving me hope.

    • Debbie Steinberg-Kuntz on January 29, 2019 at 6:51 pm

      There are many reasons to be hopeful! Thanks, Kim!

    • S on January 29, 2019 at 7:45 pm

      Me too! These are all wonderful! I finally feel validated and that someone truly gets my kid! Thank you

  49. Lisa on January 29, 2019 at 4:49 pm

    This is such great info. I would love a few bullet points for main ideas. I am taking notes also but that would help for us 2e parents:)

    • Lauren on January 29, 2019 at 7:09 pm

      I found it helpful to print and read the transcription as the talk goes. Having some ADHD myself, I am big on highlighting and writing in the margins! There are so many nuggets in these talks, I completely understand with the need to organize all the information 🙂

    Dr. Greene’s video session was very enlightening. He is so right about ED classrooms. I believe the spec education ED schools made things worst for son . I took the plunge and enrolled my son in a therapeutic boarding schoo in hopes to help identify why my son is struggling behavioral in school. It is a very large financial sacrifice. I am curious Dr. Greene believes these type of schools can help identify the “lagging skills” or a viable option if your school district does not schools that work for your child.

      Cynthia, I think it varies by school. You might want to bring Ross Greene’s model to the attention of your son’s school. His Lives In the Balance website has a very helpful ‘walking tour’ for parents and teachers.

    I just listened to Ross Greene’s talk – such great practical knowledge at a time when I thought I was doing everything I was supposed to. I know so many parents who could be helped by this advice. Thank you so much!
