Description

The CPS approach focuses on building helping relationships and teaching at-risk kids the skills they need to succeed across a variety of different settings. It is a strengths-based, neurobiologically-grounded approach that provides concrete guideposts so as to operationalize trauma-informed care and empower youth and family voice. Tier 1 training is intended for mental health front-line staff, clinicians and educators interested in becoming proficient in Collaborative Problem Solving, an evidence-based approach to understanding and helping children and adolescents with a wide range of social, emotional, and behavioral challenges.

Participants learn to advance their skills in applying the model through a combination of didactic lectures, role-playing, videotape examples, case presentations, and breakout groups with topics of specific interest to clinicians and educators. Participants receive personal attention and individualized feedback during breakout sessions from Think:Kids trainers while also benefiting from opportunities for networking. Continuing education credits are offered at no extra cost. This is a 2.5 day training program and participants must attend all days to be considered for certification. Completion of the training is also a requirement of the professional certification program.
