S2E6: Dr Ross W. Greene

Podcast information

Join us for a mind blowing episode in which we talk to the BIGGEST NAME in Psychology.

Ross is a clinical psychologist and a New York Times bestselling author of the influential books The Explosive Child, Lost at School, Lost and Found, and Raising Human Beings.

He is the originator of the model of care described in those books, now called Collaborative & Proactive Solutions (CPS). 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, which provides a vast array of free, web-based resources on the CPS model. He has appeared in a wide range of media, including The Oprah Show, Good Morning America, The Washington Post, The Chicago Tribune, and the Boston Globe.

πŸ’₯ How have you become an expert on the challenging behaviours of young people?

πŸ’₯ You’ve coined the phrase β€˜Kids do well if they can’, what does this mean and what implication does it have for teachers and caregivers?

πŸ’₯ What would you say to educators who believe that sanctions are necessary to promote good order and discipline in schools?

πŸ’₯ How would you respond to those who call your method and approach as woke? How can you not consider sanctions & rewards?

πŸ’₯ What advice would you give to someone working with a challenging student – what techniques could they use to improve the outcome in a positive way?

πŸ’¬ “I’d rather be solving problems than modifying behaviour.”

πŸ’¬ “The last thing our prisoners need is more punishment.”

πŸ’¬ “Why does society continue with punishment, reward & sanction?”

πŸ’¬ “I hate seeing kids getting…secluded for expectations we already know that the kid cannot reasonably meet.”

πŸ’¬ “No excuses behaviour policies = Ineffective. Silent corridors = archaic.”
