---------- TRAINING DESCRIPTION:
This 3-day intensive Collaborative Problem Solving training is appropriate for:
- Educators (Teachers, Administrators, Specialists, Counselors, Preschool Educators, etc.)
- After-School and Childcare Providers
- Mental Health Professionals
- Parents and Caregivers of Children and Adults
Participants should have some introductory exposure to the model, and have interest in becoming more proficient in this innovative approach. Relationally based and neurobiologically-grounded, CPS views challenging behavior as a learning disability or delayed development of some very crucial cognitive (thinking) skills necessary to handle the demands of everyday life.
Through a more empathetic and accurate understanding of what is getting in a child's (or adult's) way, we (parents/caregivers, educators, clinicians) are better able to intervene to support children (and adults) through a collaborative process of teaching skills and solving problems. In this training, participants with some previous exposure to this approach will advance their skills in applying the model through a combination of didactic instruction, role-plays, video and audio examples, case presentations, and breakout groups with topics of specific interest to clinicians and educators.
This is an opportunity to not only learn about this model, but to network with others who desire to promote a compassionate and neurodevelopmentally supportive approach, and to receive individual attention and feedback during breakout sessions from Think:Kids Certified CPS Trainers.
