The Children's Mental Health Network is looking forward to attending the 4th annual Stigma, Discrimination, and Disparities in Children's Services Conference February 13 - 15, 2013 in San Diego, CA, hosted by the Family and Youth Roundtable (a Network favorite).
One of the many great speakers they have lined up is Dr. Ross Greene, author of The Explosive Child and Lost at School, and originator of the Collaborative Problem Solving (CPS) approach. The CPS model is highly effective with kids often described as angry, difficult, defiant, and oppositional. Be sure to check out his website. It is chock full of information – streaming video, an extensive Listening Library, and a boatload of additional resources -- to help you learn about and implement the research-based CPS model and provide you with the strategies and support you need to help kids with social, emotional, and behavioral challenges. Visit his website.
The Children's Mental Health Network will be there in full force documenting the new learnings that will come out of this conference so be sure to come by and say hello. Details here.
