Video: Collaborative and Proactive Solutions (CPS)

Synopsis: Collaborative and Proactive Solutions (CPS)

Parents often rely on sticker charts, commands, and consequences to manage their children's behavior. However, sometimes these strategies stop working or do not address the underlying problem behind defiance, frustration, or behavioral and emotional difficulties. Parents need novel strategies to help children communicate and manage their frustrations and concerns better. This webinar will present a well-regarded treatment approach, Collaborative and Proactive Solutions (CPS), as a helpful alternative to rewards and consequences, and one that can lead to healthier, more productive, more respectful methods of communication between parents and children.
