Collaborative Problem Solving

Think:Kids teaches a revolutionary, evidence-based approach called Collaborative Problem Solving® (CPS) for helping children with behavioral challenges. Through training, support and clinical services, Think:Kids promotes the understanding that challenging kids lack the skill, not the will, to behave well – specifically skills related to problem solving, flexibility and frustration tolerance.

Unlike traditional models of discipline, the CPS approach avoids the use of power, control and motivational procedures and instead focuses on building helping relationships and teaching at-risk kids the skills they need to succeed.
