Free Webinar Replay: Beyond Rewards & Consequences: A Better Parenting Strategy for Teens with ADHD and ODD
In this hour-long webinar-on-demand, learn how Dr. Greene’s Collaborative & Proactive Solutions model can help you parent teens with ODD and ADHD.
Search for parenting advice on Amazon.com, and you’ll see 70,000+ books filled with guidance — much of it contradictory, confusing, and/or ambiguous. These days, it’s tough to know what’s right or wrong, what to let slide, what to prioritize, and how best to respond when your child isn’t meeting expectations. If your teen is diagnosed with ADHD or ODD, the questions are more numerous and the challenges greater.
How can I motivate my teen? How can I make him obey me? These are often the first questions I hear. But they should be your last reaction if you want to have a good relationship with your teen and influence his or her development. Collaboration and problem-solving work a lot better.
In this webinar, you will learn about:
- Dr. Greene’s Collaborative & Proactive Solutions models
- How to influence, not control, your adolescent
- How to stop focusing on your teen’s behavior and start focusing on (and solving) the problems that are causing that behavior
- How to help your teen explore his or her own values and be aware of yours
- Why adult-imposed consequences may be counterproductive
- Why good parenting means “being responsive to the hand you’ve been dealt”
- The three steps that are involved in solving a problem collaboratively
Webinar replays include:

Meet the Expert Speaker:
Ross W. Greene, Ph.D. is the originator of the innovative, empirically-supported approach now known as Collaborative & Proactive Solutions (CPS), as described in his influential books The Explosive Child, Lost at School, Lost & Found, and the recently released Raising Human Beings. Dr. Greene was on the faculty at Harvard Medical School for over 20 years, and is now Founding Director of the non-profit Lives in the Balance. He is on the adjunct faculty in the Department of Psychology at Virginia Tech and in the Faculty of Science at the University of Technology in Sydney, Australia. Dr. Greene has worked with several thousand behaviorally challenging kids and their families, and he and his colleagues have overseen implementation and evaluation of the CPS model in hundreds of schools, inpatient psychiatry units, and residential and juvenile detention facilities, with dramatic effect: significant reductions in discipline referrals, detentions, suspensions, and use of restraint procedures and solitary confinement. He has infused the parenting and teaching of all kids with humanity, empathy, and compassion. Dr. Greene lectures throughout the world and lives with his family in Portland, Maine.
