Tier 1 Collaborative Problem Solving® Training

This summer we invite you to learn more about the Collaborative Problem Solving® (CPS) approach.

Think:Kids and the Department of Psychiatry at Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) are pleased to offer our Tier 1 Training as a 2 ½ day symposium focused on the assessment, planning and intervention components of this evidence-based model for helping adults with children who have challenging behaviors.

Think:Kids teaches adults around the world about our revolutionary approach to helping children struggling with social, emotional and behavioral challenges.This intensive training is intended for parents and professionals interested in becoming more proficient in this innovative approach to understanding and helping children, adolescents, and adults with behavioral challenges, called Collaborative Problem Solving® (CPS).

Participants with some prior CPS exposure will learn to advance their skills in applying the approach through a combination of didatic lectures, role playing, videotape examples, case presentations, and breakout groups.

Training Content:

  • Learn the pro's and con's of traditional behavior management strategies
  • Understand the underlying causes of challenging behavior

  • Practice prioritizing, planning and achieving a consensus using the three Plans of the CPS model
  • Learn how to solve problems and train skills using the Collaborative Problem Solving process
  • Practice drilling down to identify specific triggers / unmet expectations.

Additional Topics Include:

  • Strategies for when a child refuses or has difficulty expressing his/ her concern

Think:Kids at MGH: Collaborative Problem Solving®


Think:Kids teaches a revolutionary, evidence-based approach for helping children with behavioral challenges. Through training, support and clinical 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
