Psychologist & Author
Ross W. Greene, PhD, is the author of the influential, best-selling books The Explosive Child and Lost at School and a fierce and articulate advocate for the compassionate understanding and treatment of behaviorally challenging kids and their caregivers. Drawing upon vast clinical and consultation experience and research in the neurosciences, his innovative, research-based Collaborative & Proactive Solutions (CPS) approach – which posits that challenging behavior is the result of lagging skills (rather than lagging motivation) and emphasizes solving problems collaboratively (rather than use of motivational procedures) – has been implemented in countless thousands of families and hundreds of general and special education schools, inpatient units, and residential and juvenile detention facilities.

"He was TERRIFIC. We had a great event last night. He gave a wonderful talk that the audience really appreciated. In fact, we’ve gotten many requests for his PowerPoint from heads of schools who were there. Please let him know the kind of buzz there is today around his presentation. He’s got a lot of fans! Thanks to APB for all of your help throughout."
"Many thanks for your participation in this year’s conference. Your keynote session and continuation session on Collaborative Problem Solving was perfect. We thoroughly enjoyed how you [shared] your personal anecdote about the legal trial and tribulations you are going through and used it as an example for the conference attendees. We especially appreciated your personalizing your comments to include us. It was a pleasure to meet you. We appreciate the effort you put into making the conference such a success."
"Dr. Greene was very well received. People are still talking about his presentation and book. A person in my office has been using his ABC technique with her grandson and it is working to her delight. Dr. Greene is a very down to earth person with so many talents; it was wonderful having a chance to spend time with him."
