Educators/Schools

Time Out

If you're an educator, you know how tough it can be to help a behaviorally challenging student. And you may also recognize that the school discipline program and zero tolerance policies aren't making things any better (for anyone). Fortunately, you're in the right place! You'll want to start with The Walking Tour...it's going to guide you through the three components of the Collaborative & Proactive Solutions (CPS) model, as described in Dr. Ross Greene's books Lost at School and Lost & Found. The model has dramatically reduced discipline referrals, detentions, and suspensions in lots of schools. But it's also a great technology for giving all your students practice at some very important skills. After the tour, check out all the other helpful resources in this section.

Take the Walking Tour: Through audio programming and demonstration videos, we'll walk you through the basics of the CPS model and help you fundamentally change how you go about dealing with behavioral challenges in your school and classroom. Your role is going to change: you're won't be in the "behavior modification" business anymore, you'll be in the problem solving business instead. If you're ready to get started, click here.
