Teachers, administrators, school counselors and mental health specialists are invited to attend the third annual Lives in the Balance summit, “There’s a Better Way,” which focuses on non-confrontational interventions for at-risk children.
This conference, held Nov. 8 in Portland, will highlight various intervention models while encouraging participants to advocate on behalf of children with behavioral challenges in their own community.
The conference will be led by Ross Greene, Ph.D., director of Lives in the Balance and author of the highly acclaimed books The Explosive Child and Lost at School. Robbyn Peters Bennett, Ph.D., founder of StopSpanking.org and an advisory member of the U.S. Alliance to End the Hitting of Children, will deliver the keynote address. The afternoon agenda will include several breakout sessions offering a closer look at various intervention models.
Lives in the Balance is a non-profit organization that advocates on behalf of behaviorally-challenging kids and their parents, teachers and other caregivers, and provides free resources to help people better understand these students.
