Publisher's Summary

A bold new way to help anyone change

Why is it so hard to change problem behavior - in our kids, our colleagues, and even ourselves? Conventional methods often backfire, creating a downward spiral of resentment and frustration, and a missed opportunity for growth. What if the thinking behind these old methods is wrong? What if people don’t misbehave because they want to, but because they lack the skills to do better? Or as renowned psychologist J. Stuart Ablon asks, what if changing problem behavior is a matter of skill, not will

Based on more than 25 years of clinical work with juvenile offenders as well training parents, teachers, counselors, and law enforcement, and supported by research in neuroscience, Changeable presents a radical new way of thinking about challenging and unwanted behavior - Collaborative Problem Solving - that builds empathy, helps others reach their full potential, and most of all really works. 

With illuminating scientific evidence, remarkable success stories, and actionable insights, Changeable gives parents, teachers, CEOs, and anyone interested in learning about why we behave the way we do a roadmap for helping people grow.

*Includes a bonus PDF with charts and graphs.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Perfect for parents, bosses and humans who have to interact with other humans!

I’ve worked at one of the institutions Dr. Ablon mentions, and I’ve been trained in CPS multiple times. This. Stuff. Really. Works. I use it with my roommates, my colleagues and even my supervisor. It’s not a “soft method” but instead just a way of thinking about, and speaking to other people that considers their perspectives and concerns instead of just your own. This book sums it up with great clarity, and I found it so interesting. Definitely take the time to give it a read/listen!
