A New Approach for Understanding and Parenting Easily Frustrated, Chronically Inflexible Children.
Author 1: Ross W. Greene
Now in a new 6th edition, the ground-breaking, research-based approach to understanding and parenting children who frequently exhibit severe fits of temper and other challenging behaviours, from a distinguished clinician and pioneer in this field.
Dr Ross Greene, a distinguished clinician and pioneer in the treatment of kids with social, emotional, and behavioural challenges, has worked with thousands of explosive children, and he has good news: these kids aren’t attention-seeking, manipulative, or unmotivated, and their parents aren’t passive, permissive pushovers. Rather, explosive kids are lacking some crucial skills in the domains of flexibility/adaptability, frustration tolerance, and problem solving, and they require a different approach to parenting.
In this new edition of this compassionate, insightful, accessible, and practical book, Dr Greene provides new lenses—based on research in the neurosciences—through which to view challenging behaviour, lenses that help parents understand why traditional parenting strategies often don’t work with these children and can actually make things worse. Instead of relying on rewarding and punishing, Dr Greene’s Collaborative & Proactive Solutions (CPS) model helps parents and kids collaborate on solving the problems that precipitate explosive episodes, a process that simultaneously teaches kids the skills they lack, improves communication, enhances relationships, and dramatically improves behaviour.
