Week 6: The Collaborative Proactive Solutions Model Part 2- Understanding Lagging or Missing Skills
The collaborative proactive solutions (CPS, sometimes referred to as the collaborative problem solving model) is a highly effective means of working through challenging situations with your child. The approach is based on the works of Dr. Ross Greene, author of "The Explosive Child" "Raising Human Beings" and "Lost and Found." The approach is support by multiple research studies and has been listed as an evidence based practice. Within this approach parents learn to understand a child's specific areas of strength as well as areas of lagging skill. Parents also learn to work through problems while building skills and improving relationships with their children.
Part 2 helps parents make sense of recurring problems with their children by doing a good assessment of areas of lagging or missing skills. Parents will learn a framework for understanding the skill necessary to face life's challenges and prepare to help their children learn ways to improve their lagging skills.
