ATT Teacher Education Class - An Introduction to 'CPS'-Collaborative Problem Solving

8-9:30pm
2828 W. Pratt Blvd



For ATT Teachers

AN INTRODUCTION TO “CPS” - COLLABORATIVE    

     PROBLEM SOLVING (ATT Course Code EP, ID, CD) Room 103               

In this session you will get an introduction to the basic principles of Collaborative Problem Solving (CPS).  CPS is an innovative problem solving method that teaches adults and children to focus on building relationships and skills to solve conflicts, and address challenging behaviors, rather than punishments that do not address the underlying causes of the conflicts. This approach has a central theme -- behind most challenging behavior is a problem to be solved and a skilled to be trained.   CPS provides a framework through which to   identify which cognitive skills are lacking and develop a plan collaboratively and realistically to teach those skills. 

Day and Time: Wednesday evening, 8:00 - 9:30 pm

Session: 1 session, Wednesday, April 22, 2015 (1/4 credit)

Presented by: Mrs. Julie Gordon, REACH
