Collaborative and Proactive Solutions (CPS) is the evidence-based model that Clinical Psychologist Dr. Ross Greene describes in his influential books The Explosive Child, Lost at School, Lost & Found, and Raising Human Beings.

We will be hosting two courses across two days.
Monday 06/05/2024 - Introductory Course
Tuesday 07/05/2024 - Advanced Course

The CPS model has transformed thinking and practices in countless families, schools, inpatient psychiatric units, and residential and juvenile detention facilities throughout the world, and has been associated with dramatic reductions in adult-child conflict, concerning behaviours, disciplinary referrals, detentions, suspensions, restraints, and seclusions.

The model represents a significant departure from discipline-as-usual: it focuses on solving problems rather than on modifying behaviour, emphasises collaborative rather than unilateral solutions, encourages proactive rather than reactive intervention, de-emphasises diagnostic categories, and provides practical, research-based tools for assessment and intervention.

In these sessions, Dr. Greene will provide an overview of the CPS model, along with more advanced coverage of the nuances of assessment and engaging kids in solving the problems that affect their lives.


Introductory Course - Monday, 6th May 2024 8:30am - 3:30pm

Advanced Course - Tuesday, 7th May 2024 8:30am - 3:30pm
