Larry Lam

Certified Trainer & Consultant

Larry Lam, LCSW, MPH provides a range of services at Think:Kids to those who are learning to utilize Collaborative Problem Solving (CPS) in their personal and/or professional lives. He facilitates training and coaching sessions, teaches advanced concepts as an instructor in our Certification Program, and consults with organizations who are working towards implementation and sustainability of CPS.

Prior to working full-time at Think:Kids, Larry spent many years working with youth, families, and staff in foster care in North Carolina, South Carolina, and Florida. He spent over 9 years leading CPS implementation efforts in child welfare that included training and coaching of staff and parents. He has been using CPS in his work since first learning the model in 2013. He has been dedicated to spreading the philosophy in his professional life and grounding himself in the philosophy at home as he raises children of his own.

Larry received his BS in Policy Analysis and Management from Cornell University in Ithaca, NY. He also holds Master’s degrees in both Social Work and Public Health from Temple University in Philadelphia, PA.

About Me: I’m Larry (he/him/his) and I live just outside the Raleigh, North Carolina area. I am married and a father of three wonderful, school-aged kids. When I’m not doing all things CPS, you can find me running on local roads in the dark, early morning hours. I enjoy helping as an assistant coach for my oldest child’s soccer team and will occasionally be a head coach for any of my other kids depending on their athletic interests. I grew up in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania where my parents owned a Chinese restaurant for 10 years. Somewhere in those years spent in the restaurant I knew I wanted to do something that would help people – I just had no idea what that would be! I am excited to help bring CPS to more people so that we can better help the youth in this and future generations. I hope that my approach in teaching, coaching, and consulting helps other adults utilize this model to reduce stress and build skills with everyone they serve.
