Dr. Ross W. Greene
ROCK HILL, S.C. — Renowned Harvard psychologist and published author Dr. Ross W. Greene will present a full-day workshop at Winthrop University Friday, March 22.

Greene’s workshop, which will take place from 8:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m. in the Richardson Ballroom in the DiGiorgio Campus Center is part of an ongoing professional development series for school psychologists and allied professionals. The workshop, entitled "The Collaborative Problem-Solving Approach: Understanding and Helping Kids with Social, Emotional and Behavioral Challenges," will call upon Greene’s extensive experience in the child development field and the collaborative problem-solving approach, created by Greene. This approach focuses on working with a behaviorally challenged child through collaboration rather than traditional discipline.

The event is jointly sponsored by the Winthrop School Psychology Program and the South Carolina Association of School Psychologists. More than 100 people are expected to attend.

Greene has published two books, “The Explosive Child” and “Lost At School.” He is an associate professor in the Department of Psychiatry at Harvard Medical School and has appeared extensively in the media, including The Oprah Winfrey Show and her O Magazine. Greene’s research has received funding through the Stanley Medical Research Institute, the National Institute on Drug Abuse, the U.S. Department of Education and the Maine Juvenile Justice Advisory Group.

He also began Lives in the Balance, a non-profit organization that advocates for behaviorally challenging children and their parents, teachers and caregivers, and provides free online resources to help understand the behavior and attitudes.
