Collaborative Problem Solving® Parent / Caregiver Class (8 Weeks)

8 Online Sessions | Thursdays 1:30 pm - 3:00 pm ET / 10:30 am - 12:00 pm PT

June 1 - July 20, 2023

Think:Kids invites parents and caregivers to learn Collaborative Problem Solving® (CPS), the evidence-based and trauma-informed approach for helping children develop the skills they need to manage their behavior. This class teaches parents and guardians how to reduce challenging behaviors by using the CPS approach with their child.

This is an introductory class for those not yet familiar with Collaborative Problem Solving.

Class materials, breakout sessions, and opportunities for questions and answers will be a part of this highly interactive parent class experience.

During this interactive training you will:

  • Understand why children sometimes struggle to meet day-to-day expectations.
  • Learn the Collaborative Problem Solving approach to addressing conflicts in a way that reduces challenging behaviors, improves relationships, and teaches critical skills.
  • Practice addressing problems before things become escalated between you and your child.
  • Connect with other parents in a compassionate and non-judgmental setting.

About the organizer

Think:Kids teaches a revolutionary, evidence-based approach for helping children with behavioral challenges. Through training, support, and implementation services, we promote the understanding that challenging kids lack the skill, not the will, to behave well – specifically skills related to problem-solving, flexibility and frustration tolerance. Unlike traditional models of discipline, our Collaborative Problem Solving® approach avoids the use of power, control, and motivational procedures and instead focuses on teaching kids the skills they need to succeed. #KidsDoWellifTheyCan
