What is the Collaborative & Proactive Solutions* Method?
Solving problems and responding to life’s demands requires thinking skills. Challenging behavior occurs when a demand is placed upon a child who doesn’t have the necessary skills to respond appropriately. If a child doesn’t have the specific skill needed to appropriately handle a certain problem or expectation, the result can be negative behavior.
By identifying the chronic problems you (or other adults) face with your child, the demands that “trigger” your child to act out, we can better understand the specific skills s/he needs help in order to improve. We can then target these skills to discuss with and teach to the child. Using the Collaborative & Proactive Solutions (CPS) model we can help your child develop the skills that s/he needs to better handle these demands.
