Using the Collaborative Problem Solving Approach: Think Differently About Your Children
The Collaborative Problem Solving Model is a proactive approach that looks at children’s behavior differently from conventional wisdom. CPS is based on the philosophy that children do well if they can, instead of “children do well if they want to”. Understanding children from this perspective shifts our focus away from blaming the child for their behaviors, to understanding what a child’s behavior is telling us about the skills they may be lacking. We can then work with the child to teach them the skills they need to learn in order for them to be more successful and meet our expectations.
Dr. Lisa Wolff, CCSD psychologist and instructor for Parent Academy classes, will share the CPS model as an approach for solving problems and building relationships with kids of all ages. The Collaborative Problem Solving approach is currently being used in the Cherry Creek School District with kids at all grade levels, and with a wide array of behavioral needs.
Plan ahead to take a little time out of your day or take a few hours off of work and come to connect with other parents, be informed by local and national speakers, and get empowered to take a proactive approach to parenting. All parents, school administrators and community members are welcome and encouraged to attend Parent Information Network (PIN) presentations.
Presentations are free and are held the first Tuesday of each month
at the Student Achievement Resource Center (SARC).
14188 Briarwood Avenue, Centennial, south of Arapahoe Rd., between Potomac and Jordan Roads
Come at 9:00 a.m. for refreshments and networking.
