Introduction to Collaborative Problem Solving

Introduction to Collaborative Problem Solving

These self-paced online courses introduce the basic principles of Collaborative Problem Solving, an innovative, trauma-informed, and evidence-based approach to understanding and helping kids and adults with behavioral challenges. Participants learn a more empathic and accurate understanding of what causes unmet expectations and challenging behavior and are exposed to an overview of the three key components of the approach. These courses lay the foundation for attending Essential Foundation in Collaborative Problem Solving (Level 1).

Join us to:

  • Understand what really causes challenging behavior or unmet expectations in others.
  • Discover the limitations of motivational approaches as a solution to unwanted behavior.
  • Learn three ways to respond to unwanted behavior and the best times to use them.
  • See how the approach can positively change interactions and outcomes with youth and adults.

"The Introductory Training to CPS was a gift in helping me shift my mindset about how to respond to challenging behaviors. I wish I’d found CPS years ago, but what comfort to understand the idea of 'skill not will' now!"
Divinna Schmitt, M.Ed.
