This CPS Introductory Overview is intended for:
- Educators (Teachers, Administrators, Specialists, Counselors, Preschool Educators, etc.)
- Mental Health Professionals
- Parents and Caregivers of Children and Adults
- After-School and Childcare Providers
- Community Partners
Relationally based, CPS views challenging behavior as a learning disability/developmental delay 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.
