Thursday, February 24 - Friday, February 25
9:00 am - 4:00 pm
Participants in this 2 day training will leave with an understanding of the underpinnings of the Collaborative & Proactive Solutions (CPS) model, its refinements over the past 8-10 years, and practical assessments and intervention tools that can be brought back to and used in diverse settings.
The CPS model is an approach that recognizes challenging behaviour in children and equips parents to develop tools and techniques to reduce these challenging episodes.
This is the evidenced-based model Dr Ross Ross Greene describes in his influential books The Explosive Child, Lost at School, Lost & Found, and Raising Human Beings. The CPS model has transformed thinking and practices in countless families, schools, inpatient psychiatry units, and residential and juvenile detention facilities throughout the world, and has been associated with dramatic reductions in adult-child conflict, concerning behaviours, disciplinary referrals, detentions, suspensions, restraints, and seclusions. The model represents a significant departure from discipline-as-usual: it focuses on solving problems rather than on modifying behaviour, emphasizes collaborative rather than unilateral solutions, encourages proactive rather than reactive intervention, de-emphasizes diagnostic categories, and provides practical, research-based tools for assessment and intervention. Dr Greene will answer many questions during the webinar – especially at the end of each segment.
