COLLABORATIVE & PROACTIVE SOLUTIONS: CREATIVE PROBLEM SOLVING MODEL
September 13, 2018 @ 6:00 pm - 8:30 pm
Presenter: Kimberly R. Hopkins, LICSW, Director of Outreach and Communications at Lives in the Balance
Collaborative & Proactive Solutions (CPS) is the empirically supported model Dr.Ross Greene describes in his influential books, The Explosive Child, Lost at School, and the recently released books, Lost and Found and Raising Human Beings. The CPS model provides a compassionate understanding of kids’ behavioral challenges and a non-adversarial, effective approach for reducing challenging behavior, improving communication, and repairing relationships.
This model has been implemented in schools, inpatient units, residential facilities, treatment programs, and juvenile detention facilities. For those new to Dr. Greene’s model, this workshop will provide an introduction to the basic themes. You will leave with an understanding of the underpinnings of Dr. Greene’s Approach, along with practical assessment and intervention tools that can be brought back to and used in diverse settings.
