CALENDAR OF EVENTS

Open Forum with Visiting Scholar Dr. Ross Greene
Sponsored by C of IDEAS, SVSU, and MCESA

Nov. 5, 2018
7:00 - 8:30 pm
SVSU Ott Auditorium
Gilbertson Hall

Dr. Ross Greene’s evidence-based Collaborative & Proactive Solutions model – as described in his books The Explosive Child and Lost at School has transformed the understanding of treatment of kids with social, emotional, and behavioral challenges in countless families, schools, and therapeutic facilities. With the release of his most recent book, Raising Human Beings, Dr. Greene has turned his attention to all kids, with a particular focus on teaching the skills that define the better side of human nature: empathy, appreciating how one’s behavior is affecting others, resolving disagreements without conflict, taking another’s perspective, and honesty. These skills have never been more important, and research indicates that solving problems collaboratively and proactively teaches these skills with any kid. And—despite academic initiatives that have made it harder for educators to be the socialization agents they’ve always been—that is something that parents and educators have boundless opportunities to teach, model, and practice every day.
