Week 7: The Collaborative Proactive Solutions Model Part 3- Problem Solving Using Plan B
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 3 teaches parents how to do the three step problem solving approach called, "Plan B." This approach provides parents with a road map for how to work through difficult situations with your child that build new skills, promote relationship, and improve the level of peace in the home. The approach is a proactive means of preventing repetitive problems in the household by involving the child in the process and improving their level of skills to face these problem.
