Overview

Lost and Found: Helping Behaviorally Challenging Students (and, While You're At It, All the Others) by Ross W. Greene

Implement a more constructive approach to difficult students

Lost and Found is a follow-up to Dr. Ross Greene'slandmark works, The Explosive Child and Lost atSchool, providing educators with highly practical, explicitguidance on implementing his Collaborative & ProactiveSolutions (CPS) Problem Solving model with behaviorally-challengingstudents. While the first two books described Dr. Greene'spositive, constructive approach and described implementation on amacro level, this useful guide provides the details of hands-on CPSimplementation by those who interact with these children every day.Readers will learn how to incorporate students' input inunderstanding the factors making it difficult for them to meetexpectations and in generating mutually satisfactory solutions.Specific strategies, sample dialogues, and time-tested advice helpeducators implement these techniques immediately.

The groundbreaking CPS approach has been a revelation forparents and educators of behaviorally-challenging children. Thisbook gives educators the concrete guidance they need to immediatelybegin working more effectively with these students.

  • Implement CPS one-on-one or with an entire class
  • Work collaboratively with students to solve problems
  • Study sample dialogues of CPS in action
  • Change the way difficult students are treated

The discipline systems used in K-12 schools are obsolete, andaren't working for the kids to whom they're most often applied– those with behavioral challenges. Lost and Foundprovides a roadmap to a different paradigm, helping educatorsradically transform the way they go about helping their mostchallenging students.
