Publisher's Summary

From the renowned authority on education and parenting, "an in-depth approach to aid parents and teachers to work together with behaviorally challenging students" (Publishers Weekly) - now revised and updated.

School discipline is broken. Too often, the kids who need our help the most are viewed as disrespectful, out of control, and beyond help, and are often the recipients of our most ineffective, most punitive interventions. These students - and their parents, teachers, and administrators - are frustrated and desperate for answers.

Dr. Ross W. Greene, author of the acclaimed book The Explosive Child, offers educators and parents a different framework for understanding challenging behavior. Dr. Greene's Collaborative & Proactive Solutions (CPS) approach helps adults focus on the true factors contributing to challenging classroom behaviors, empowering educators to address these factors and create helping relationships with their most at-risk kids.

This revised and updated edition of Lost at School contains the latest refinements to Dr. Greene's CPS model, including enhanced methods for solving problems collaboratively, improving communication, and building relationships with kids.

Dr. Greene's lively, compelling narrative includes:

  • Tools to identify the problems and lagging skills causing challenging behavior
  • Explicit guidance on how to radically improve interactions with challenging kids and reduce challenging episodes - along with many examples showing how it's done
  • Practical guidance for successful planning and collaboration among educators, parents, and kids

Backed by years of experience and research and written with a powerful sense of hope and achievable change, Lost at School gives teachers and parents the realistic strategies and information to impact the classroom experience of every challenging kid (and their classmates).

    "Great information!"

    This book has a lot of great information, even if you're not a teacher or educator. As a parent, I found this book helpful in better understanding how to use the CPS method. The narrator was good, and it was easy to listen to.

    There is not really a story.

    "fantastic book!"

    the author presents a very viable solution for schools that are relying on a discipline matrix that only issues punishment. It suggest that kids will make good decisions if they have the skills to do so, and if they don't, then it is our job to identify those skills and support the students in helping to develop them

    "Truly Transformational"

    This is a great book that will create a positive shift in your mindset when dealing with students/children that struggle with behavior issues. The strategies really work and are a great asset to a school community or anyone that works with children.

    "Interesting insights"

    I believe Dr. Greene captures the essence of necessary changes school systems need to make in order to truly educate our students. Facilitating academic progress and and sufficiently preparing our youth for the future entails so much more than mere math, science, social studies and reading/LA. Social/emotional development, one's mental health and relational aptitude are intertwined within academic and cognitive development. They cannot be separated, but yet schools' predominant focus is solely on academic content. Overall, this focus basically excludes aspects of what science has proven to foster cognitive and overall development. Science has proven that the primary factors in having a happy and successful life are relational connectedness and aptitude! Relational and social/emotional health require foundational skills. These skills need to be taught, practiced and then re-taunt in a comprehensive, developmentally appropriate way. That's how humans learn- through patterned repetition. Great book! I wish all schools considered this philosophy. Perhaps then societal health would improve, along with the scores of typical assessment measures.

    "Better equipped to be the change"

    "Brought scenarios alive"

    I have the book but listening to the reader made the characters concerns real. Very glad I listened to the audio along with reading the book. Looking forward to implementing this new way of thinking about kids thinking skills.
