The earlybird deadline has been extended to March 28, 2017.

Thursday, March 30, 2017 – Friday, March 31, 2017 | Lethbridge, ab
The earlybird deadline has been extended to March 28, 2017.
The 2 day intensive training provides participants with the opportunity to study key facets of solving problems collaboratively, including coverage and practice in specific areas of implementation in school and clinical settings. Because exposure to this model may vary amongst participants, some time will be devoted to reviewing and ensuring familiarity with the basic elements of the model but the training is conducted in a manner that provides maximum opportunities for questions, interactions, practice and discussion.
Dear Prospective Participant,
I was thrilled when Jack Hirose offered me the opportunity to do a two day intensive training session in Lethbridge in March 2017. The 2 Day Intensive is such a great way for educators and mental health professionals to get greater exposure to and practice in my approach to understanding and helping behaviorally challenging kids. My model has evolved and been refined over the past five years, so this advanced training offers a great way to stay abreast of the updates as well. The intensive format provides lots of opportunity for discussion, questions, and really exploring the more nuanced aspects of the model. The trainings makes extensive use of videotaped examples of key facets of Solving Problems Collaboratively, and are conducted in a manner that provides maximum opportunities for questions, practice, interaction, and discussion.
If you have been using the model – whether in your school, facility, or clinical practice – I do hope you’ll join me in March. I’ll do everything I can to make this an informative and enriching learning opportunity.
I look forward to seeing you!
Ross W. Greene, Ph.D.
