Ross W. Greene, PhD, is the originator of the innovative, evidence-based approach known as Collaborative and Proactive Solutions (CPS), as described in his influential books, Raising Human Beings: Creating a Collaborative Approach With Your Child; The Explosive Child: A New Approach For Understanding And Parenting Easily Frustrated, Chronically Inflexible Children; Lost At School; and Lost & Found. Ross has worked with several thousand behaviorally-challenged kids and their caregivers, and he and his colleagues have overseen implementation and evaluation of the CPS model in hundreds of schools, inpatient psychiatry units and residential and juvenile detention facilities, with dramatic effect: significant reductions in discipline referrals, detentions, suspensions and use of restraint procedures and solitary confinement. He has infused the parenting and teaching of all kids with humanity, empathy and compassion. Ross was on the faculty of Harvard Medical School for over twenty years and is now Founding Director of the non-profit Lives In The Balance. He is also an adjunct faculty member in the Dept. of Psychology at Virginia Tech and in the Faculty of Science at the University of Technology in Sydney, Australia. He is also Developer and Executive Producer of the recently released documentary film, The Kids We Lose.
