Podcast: Dr. Ross Greene of Lives in the Balance

We talk to Dr. Ross Greene of Lives in the Balance about the Collaborative & Proactive Solutions model of care, which focuses on solving a child’s unsolved problems instead of just reacting to behavior, a model that can be used by parents, teachers, or caregivers.

Dr. Greene is a clinical psychologist who spent 20 years on the faculty at Harvard Medical School and is now founding director of the non-profit Lives in the Balance, which provides information and support for the CPS model of care. He’s also the author of several books, including his latest entitled Raising Human Beings: Creating a collaborative partnership with Your Child. We were lucky to have him in the studio thanks to Forty Carrots Family Center.
