Description:    In his book, Dr. Greene discusses what underlies explosive behavior. He argues that “children will do well if they can” and postulates that while explosive children often feel bad about their behavior and are motivated to change, deficits in specific skills make it difficult for them to behave more appropriately. Much as a child with a learning disability wants to read but finds the task difficult without extra help, explosive children also need additional support to develop the skills needed to manage their world. Greene presents an alternative approach to discipline that focuses on teaching children these skills rather than punishing their behavior.
    We strive to bring our educators excellent presenters and of course that comes with a cost. When our educators register to attend a workshop, we expect them to honor their intention to participate. As we move forward, there will be a charge of $125 for participants who register, but do not attend.
    Registration has closed.
