A practical, compassionate, effective approach to helping students with behavioral challenges. Lost & Found is a follow-up to Dr. Ross Greene's landmark works, The Explosive Child and Lost at School, providing educators with highly practical, explicit guidance on implementing his evidence-based Collaborative & Proactive Solutions (CPS) model with behaviorally-challenging students. While the first two books described Dr. Greene's non-punitive, non-adversarial approach and described implementation on a macro level, Lost & Found provides more explicit details on key facets of the CPS model, including using the Assessment of Lagging Skills and Unsolved Problems and solving problems collaboratively (and coaching others to do so). Readers will learn how to incorporate students' input in understanding the factors making it difficult for them to meet expectations and in generating mutually satisfactory solutions. Specific strategies, sample dialogues, and time-tested advice help educators implement these techniques immediately.
The groundbreaking CPS approach has been a revelation for parents and educators of behaviorally-challenging children. This book gives educators the concrete guidance they need to immediately begin working more effectively with these students.
