Red Green Behavior Therapy®
RGBT’s utilization enables parents, teachers, and caretakers to effectively alleviate their children’s and students’ social and behavioral challenges using powerful, yet simple, techniques. RGBT has been developed and proliferated through a range of online workshops specifically designed for professionals as well as for parents, in-person mentoring for parents and teachers, and individualized sessions with children. This is supplemented by a variety of social skills materials such as negotiation cards and RBGT social behavior books.
The RGBT approach is with your child from school to home, with friends and with family.

"RGBT has shown me how to be more proactive before the red behavior happens. I learned how best to deal with my student’s frustration. I will be implementing the preventive, proactive and corrective strategies into my sessions as needed. I will also be teaching or encouraging sharing by teaching perspective-taking skills."
"Dr. Samet's course was incredible!! I loved how she gave practical advice on how to apply the red green behavior method to specific situations, and gave concrete examples to explain and instruct how to implement the strategies in real life."
"The RGBT technique is amazing! I learned how to target complex social skills in a simple and straightforward way. I really liked how all behaviors can be taught in a simple red and green format. RGBT will change the way I can work with my students with behavioral issues."
