Who is welcome: Families, educators, social workers, and all adults working with youth to a day of training in how to shift your thinking about challenging kids and how to understand their challenging behavior. 

The day’s programming: Think:Kids’ Introductory Training provides a foundation for professionals and parents interested in learning the evidence-based approach to understanding and helping children and adolescents with behavioral challenges called Collaborative Problem Solving®. This Intro. training serves as the prerequisite for our professional intensive training seminars (Tier 1 Training & Tier 2 Training.)

The Collaborative Problem Solving® approach focuses on helping adults teach the skills these children lack while resolving the chronic problems that tend to precipitate challenging behavior. Through lecture, videos, case examples and role plays, this one-day training will introduce how to help foster positive relationships with these children and encourage growth in areas of self-regulation, communication and problem solving.
