Dr. Ross Greene, originator of the Collaborative & Proactive Solutions (CPS) approach will be holding the Lives in the Balance Seventh Annual International Summit in Portland, Maine.
“High-stakes tests, zero tolerance policies, time-outs, stickers, suspensions, detentions, and cookie-cutter interventions got you down? Ready to come up for air, recharge your CPS batteries, and connect with parents and educators who are blazing a different trail? The Seventh Annual Lives in the Balance Summit is almost here!”
This year’s Summit features a keynote from Dr. Ross Greene and introductory and advanced sessions specifically geared toward educators, parents, and clinicians. So whether you’re new to the CPS model or an old hand, you’ll find what you’re looking for with morning and afternoon breakout sessions. And if checking out the fall leaves in Maine is appealing to you, you may want to arrive early.
Lives in the Balance is the non-profit organization founded by child psychologist Dr. Ross Greene, originator of the empirically supported Collaborative & Proactive Solutions (CPS) approach. Our vision is to foster collaboration and empathy, transform lives, and inspire change for all children (especially the most vulnerable), to heighten awareness of the detrimental and counterproductive effects of punitive interventions, and to address the systemic issues that impede our progress. The mission of Lives in the Balance is to provide vital, accessible resources and programs to caregivers of behaviorally challenging kids; to bring the plight of these kids into the public consciousness; to address the systemic issues that cause many of these kids to slip through the cracks; and to promote parenting and disciplinary practices that foster the better side of human nature in all children.
