---------- TRAINING DESCRIPTION:
This Collaborative Problem Solving Introductory Overview training is appropriate for:
- Educators (Teachers, Administrators, Specialists, Counselors, Preschool Educators, etc.)
- After-School, Childcare, and Service Providers
- Mental Health Professionals
- Parents and Caregivers of Children and Adults
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 will be exposed to the model through a combination of didactic instruction, visuals, role-plays, and examples.
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.
