Ross Greene

Ross W. Greene, Ph.D., is the originator of the innovative, empirically-supportive approach now known as the Collaborative & Proactive Solutions (CPS), as described in his influential books The Explosive Child, Lost at School, Lost & Found, and the recently released Raising Human Beings. Dr. Greene was on the faculty at Harvard Medical School for over 20 years, and is now the Founding Director of the non-profit Lives in the Balance.  He is on the adjunct faculty in the Department of Psychology at Virginia Tech and in the Faculty of Science at the Univeristy of Technology in Sydney, Australia.  Dr. Greene has worked with several thousand behaviorally challenging  kids and their families, and he and his colleagues have overseen implementation and evaluation of the CPS model in hundreds of schools, inpatient psychiatry units, and residential and juvenlies detention facilties, with dramatic effect: significant reductions in discipline referrals, detentions, supensions, and use of restraint procedures and solitary confinement.  He has infused the parenting and teaching of all kids with humanity, empathy, and compassion.  Dr. Greene lectures throughout the world and lives with his family in Portland, Maine.
