---------- TRAINING DESCRIPTION:
This CPS Introductory Overview is intended for educators, parents, mental health clinicians, child care providers, and community partners.
Relationally based, CPS views challenging behavior as a learning disability of some very crucial cognitive(thinking) skills necessary to handle the demands of everyday life and not the result of a child's willfulness or poor parenting.
Through a more empathetic and accurate understanding of what is getting in a child's way, we (parents, educators, clinicians) are better able to intervene to support children through a collaborative process of teaching skills and solving problems. In this training, participants will be exposed to the model through a combination of didactic instruction, visuals, role-plays, and examples.
This is an opportunity to not only learn about this model, but to network with others who desire to promote a compassionate and neurodevelopmentally supportive approach, and to receive individual attention and feedback during breakout sessions from Think:Kids Certified CPS Trainers.
