AUTHOR

Ross W. Greene

Dr. Ross Greene is the New York Times bestselling author of the influential books The Explosive Child, Lost at School, Raising Human Beings, and Lost & Found. He is the originator of the innovative, evidence-based treatment approach called Collaborative & Proactive Solutions (CPS) described in these books. The CPS model provides a compassionate, accurate understanding of behavioral challenges and a non-punitive, non-adversarial approach for reducing challenging episodes, solving problems, teaching skills, improving communication, and repairing relationships. Dr. Greene also developed and executive produced the feature-length documentary The Kids We Lose, a film about the counterproductive, often inhumane ways in which kids with behavioral challenges are treated -- treatment that often pushes them into the pipeline to prison -- and the difficulties and frustrations often faced by their parents, educators, and other caregivers (learn more at www.thekidswelose.com). The film received the Best Feature Documentary Award when it premiered at the 2018 New Hampshire Film Festival, will be screened at the Los Angeles Women's International Film Festival in March, 2019, and will also be screened on Maine Public Television in March (and streamed thereafter).

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 (www.livesinthebalance.org), which provides free, web-based resources on the CPS approach and advocates on behalf of kids with social, emotional, and behavioral challenges and their caregivers. He is also adjunct Associate Professor in the Department of Psychology at Virginia Tech and adjunct Professor in the Faculty of Science at the University of Technology in Sydney, Australia. The many research papers documenting the effectiveness of the CPS model can also be found on the Lives in the Balance website. Dr. Greene and his colleagues consult extensively to families, schools, inpatient psychiatry units, and residential and juvenile detention facilities, and lecture widely throughout the world (visit www.cpsconnection.com for a complete listing of learning and training options). He has been featured in a wide range of media, including The Oprah Show, Good Morning America, The Morning Show, National Public Radio, The Atlantic, The Washington Post, and Mother Jones magazine. He lives in Portland, Maine.
