The CPS Approach

The Collaborative Problem Solving® approach is an evidence-based method to managing challenging behavior that promotes the understanding that challenging kids lack the skill – not the will – to behave; specifically, skills related to problem-solving, flexibility, and frustration tolerance.

Unlike traditional models of discipline, the CPS approach avoids the use of power, control, and motivational procedures and instead focuses on collaborating with the child/ youth/ young adult to solve the problems leading to challenging behavior and building the skills they need to succeed.

This class starts on May 10th and runs for 7-weeks.
