Collaborative Problem Solving® – Online

June 11 @ 9:00 am - 11:00 am

If you’ve been struggling with your child or teenager’s tantrums, meltdowns, explosions, implosions, or other negative behaviors, you are not alone and you are in the right place! Collaborative Problem Solving® is different!  

This 8 session parenting program teaches that explosive children are typically experiencing dysfunction. These children lack the skills to do better in their environment. Punishment and reward, without the development of the necessary skills to do better, are ineffective and create further frustrations for the child. CPS involves looking at youth with a different philosophy. CPS describes youth with challenging behaviors as having delays in the development of skills in 5 different areas which are needed to adaptively solve problems and make decisions in their lives. Just as a child with a Learning Disability in reading is not making a choice not to read, a child with a lagging skill development is not choosing to misbehave, have explosions, become destructive or aggressive, and continually behave in a way that prompts adults to behave in a way that creates more misery for the child. In other words, kids do well if they can. This is different than the common wisdom that “kids do well if they want to” which prescribes interventions focused on getting the child to “want to” do better (rewards and punishments).
