Help Kids with Anxiety & OCD by Using the CPS Model

Last week I had the pleasure of interviewing Dr. Ross Greene, the best-selling author of The Explosive Child. He is the originator of the Collaborative & Proactive Solutions (CPS) Model. We talked about how to help kids with anxiety and OCD using his approach.

Many people have asked me how his CPS model fits within the approaches of Exposure Response Prevention (ERP) and other strategies we often talk about on my site, in my podcast and on my youtube channel.

To help with this I have dedicated a podcast episode to exploring the use of CPS methods combined with strategies for helping kids with anxiety and OCD.

Books by Ross Greene:


If you are trying to educate someone in your child’s life about the CPS Model and they are unwilling to read one of Ross Greene’s books, audiobooks are a great alternative. I would highly recommend the audio version of The Explosive Child, as it is only 2.5 hours and gets to the core of his teachings in a succinct way.
