Treating Explosive Kids: The Collaborative Problem-Solving Approach


Product Description

Published USA, 2006
This text is the first presentation for clinicians of the groundbreaking approach popularized in Ross Greene`s acclaimed parenting guide, The Explosive Child. Within a developmental framework, Greene and co-author, Stuart Ablon, illuminate ways in which specific factors - deficits in executive skills, language processing, emotion regulation, cognitive flexibility, and social skills - can seriously impair a child`s ability to tolerate frustration and solve problems. At the heart of their Collaborative Problem-Solving approach are procedures that help caregivers pursue realistic behavioural expectations and respond effectively when expectations are not met.
