Ben Stich

Certified Trainer & Consultant

Ben Stich, LICSW, M.Ed., is a Certified Trainer and Consultant for Think:Kids. Ben conducts training and coaching in Collaborative Problem Solving (CPS), participates in the internal development of the model, and is a member of the Think:Kids Advisory Council.

Ben previously served as the Director of Training and Curriculum Development and Director of Certification for Think:Kids. Ben is passionate about working within teams. His most proud accomplishments are helping create a certification team and a process for team-wide training and curriculum materials development.

Ben was introduced to the CPS approach while working as a high school social worker. He made it his mission to disseminate the model through the school system, which led him to become certified and join the Think:Kids team. Earlier in his career, he ran a residential treatment program for teenage girls for eight years.

In addition to his work at Think:Kids, Ben manages a private practice that works with parents learning the CPS approach and divorce and family mediation. Ben mediates divorces, co-parenting disputes, and all other types of family conflict. Ben is particularly interested in helping parents in high-conflict relationships focus on reducing tension for their children’s well-being. He is an instructor for Massachusetts’ only court-mandated High-Conflict Parent Education program at William James College.

Ben is a mediator and a licensed social worker. He graduated from Boston College Graduate School of Social Work and earned an M.Ed. from Endicott College.

About Me: My name is Ben Stich (he/him). I am a father of a human and two dogs; a partner; a son; and a brother. I love my work helping spread CPS and helping families resolve conflict through mediation – I feel like I am having my cake and eating it too! I was raised and live in Massachusetts (Go Pats! Go Celts!) and spend as much time as possible on Cape Cod and in the mountains of northern New England. While I have transitioned from my leadership role at Think:Kids, I am so proud I can continue contributing to our crucial mission. Our team is comprised of amazing individuals who help me grow as a person and professional, for which I am forever grateful.
