Tier 2 Collaborative Problem Solving® Training


Implementing the CPS approach
July 8 - July 10, 2020
Somerville, MA

Think:Kids invites educators, residential program staff, mental health clinicians, parents and anyone who is living with or helping kids with challenging behavior to learn more about Collaborative Problem Solving (CPS), the revolutionary, evidence-based approach for helping children develop the skills they need to manage their behavior. 

The Tier II training provides a review of the basic components of Collaborative Problem Solving, but the primary focus is learning and practicing strategies for implementing the approach in more challenging situations. Participants will also learn how best to facilitate skills development using hte approach. This training relies heavily on using real examples from participants' experiences. Participants will also being to learn how to integrate CPS with other approaches and therapeutic models, how to support others using the approach and, how to address common questions and misconceptions. Tier II trainign corporates lecture, case studies, role-plays, videotape examples, and breakout groups. 

This 2 ½ day symposium also provides CPS practitioners a community and a sounding board to troubleshoot issues and plan dynamic initiatives to address challenging behavior in the children we seek to support.


This intensive training is the next step in the pathway to fully integrating the CPS model. Professional development credits and group discounts are available.


Please note: participants must have completed the Tier I training prior to attending Tier II training. To ensure that participants have had time to practice CPS, we recommend six months between Tier I and Tier II training. At a minimum, participants must have at least three months between the trainings.

 
During this interactive training you will:

  • Practice strategies for implementing the CPS approach in the most challenging situations
  • Learn how to self-assess and troubleshoot your implementation of CPS
  • Address common resistances and a lack of "buy-in"
  • Understand when and how to use relational vs. didactic skills training

Additional learning includes:

  • The neurobiology underlying the Plan B approach
  • Fostering self-regulation through the relational process Plan B
  • Addressing systemic issues such as leadership during culture change

Organizer

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
