Dr Ross Greene is the New York Times bestselling author of the influential books The Explosive Child, Lost at School, Lost and Found, and Raising Human Beings.  Ross presented his one-day training program in his Collaborative & Proactive Solutions model, to audiences in Australia in 2018 and 2019 and is coming back in 2020.

Here are just some of the comments we received following Dr Greene’s workshops:

I truly love attending your workshops, and have now seen Michelle Garcia Winner, Leah Kuypers and Ross Greene. I am always so inspired by the information and it truly changes my practice every time. I don’t think I have ever been to any other courses that are so well organised, great food and venues and such extensive resources and books available. You communication with participants is also second to none.

Thanks so much for bringing such a valuable speaker to a regional town. Please keep me on your mailing list for any upcoming workshops this year and the years to follow. I am now looking to get certified in this area and help others implement Ross’s model. Just a quick note to say thank you for doing this valuable service!!!

Dear Peter, I wanted to thank you for what you’ve done to make this event happen. It is so fundamentally important for our children, and our world.  Looking forward to Ross’ next visit.  Please keep me on your mailing list!

Dear Peter, A huge thank you for all the information and updates. My colleague and I really enjoyed the two days of workshops with Ross in Sydney and it has clarified the Collaborative and Proactive Solutions model for us and answered all our questions as we are currently beginning the implementation process within our school. We are excited that Ross will be coming to Perth in 2020 and will be working to ensure as many staff can access his workshops as possible. Please keep us informed on upcoming training.

Hello Peter, I wanted to say thank you so much for organizing for Ross to lecture us in Sydney last week. It was exactly where I’m at in my clinical practice. It provided so much for me to think about and also apply. I can’t stop extolling the virtues of it to all and sundry. I can’t wait to start using these techniques next term! Your hard work really paid off, so thank you again. I’ll definitely be signing up to your mailing list. All the best and good luck furthering this great work.

Good morning Peter. Just wanted to say thanks for the superb organisation and information you provided for the Sydney workshops. I look forward to seeing what you have coming up next year.

Thank you Peter for this very thorough follow up and resources. Most appreciated!  Thanks again – I’m connected on your Facebook page now!

With regard to Ross, WOW. So proficient, he makes it sound so logical and easy doesn’t he? Clearly it’s not easy, and it didn’t come about overnight, but the way Ross’ thinking has evolved to put in such a practical model for us all to use, that will ultimately have such important implications who all we work with…. well that’s just so commendable.  Can’t wait to get “good at this” and apply it daily in my life, and in my practice at work.  Cheers and thanks for making this happen.

Thanks for a great day, Ross.  It was thoroughly insightful and enjoyable.

Thanks so much for hosting the workshop yesterday. It was super informative and my husband and I both feel we have a better understanding of the CPS model to support our 3 kids. I thought I’d cheekily offer our family if you need a volunteer case study for when Ross returns for advanced training!

It was an absolute pleasure attending Ross’s workshop yesterday – my brain is full, and inspiration overflowing! I am definitely interested in attending Ross’s advanced workshop in future.  I would like to add a BIG thank you for organising and managing the event! You and your colleagues managed to make a big group still feel intimate, and your passion and respect for Ross’s work really shone through. What a joy it was!

Thank you so much for allowing me the opportunity to listen to Ross in Brisbane. He is truly an inspiration. I hope to be able to use some of the knowledge I have gained from the workshop with in my classroom and at home with my own children. I have begun reading his book The Explosive Child and I am already learning so much. 

Peter, Thank you again for brining such great PD to Melbourne.  I have already changed my practise and met with a preschool team last night and removed the focus from behaviour management – we plan to try the ALSUP next week. I am also grateful for the reminder to include the children in the problem solving process – I know I do that in clinic sessions but possibly not enough in initial planning.

Thank you Peter! I thoroughly enjoyed the workshop. 

Hi Peter, Thank you so much for organising Ross Greene to come out. The workshop was amazing and I am super inspired to give it a “red hot go”.  Can’t wait for next year’s workshops so please keep me in the loop. 

Hi Peter, Thanks so much for this organisation! I must say I have used 2 of the skills that he taught yesterday with 2 children in today’s sessions and although I am still grappling with the language I am mighty impressed with the process and the outcomes that we achieved with this, so nice to be reminded to just let things happen in the time that is needed. Looking forward to Ross’s next instalments.
