Have you ever found yourself in a place of frustration during a challenging time with a child, spouse, or colleague? Have you ever asked the question, “Why won’t you just change?” Perhaps you personally have tried to curb bad habits, and have found it difficult to change?
Join us in a community conversation with Harvard Medical School Associate Professor, Dr. J. Stuart Ablon, to learn/explore a paradigm-shifting model offering an evidence-based approach that actually works. Based on more than twenty-five years of clinical work, Dr. Ablon presents a new way of thinking. Forget tough love, blame, zero tolerance, and other outdated ways to try to eliminate bad behavior. Instead, look for what’s missing–the ability to tolerate frustration and change –and work together to find a solution that will stick.

Dr. Ablon is the author of the books “Changeable: The Surprising Science Behind Helping Anyone Change,” “Treating Explosive Kids: The Collaborative Problem Solving Approach,” “Collaborative Problem Solving: An Evidence-Based Approach to Implementation and Practice,” and “The School Discipline Fix.”

Stemberg Endowed Chair in Child and Adolescent Psychiatry at Harvard Medical School.
