Classes Offered in Yamhill County:

Collaborative Problem Solving: Parent-to-Parent Overview Group

Bringing together parents raising kids with behavioral challenges who want to learn about the CPS approach. Facilitated by Think:Kids certified parent mentor, Jan Urton.

What is the CPS approach?
CPS is a strengths‐based, neurobiologically‐grounded approach that brings new ideas and new hope for helping
kids with behavioral challenges!
Challenging kids typically lack the skill, not the will, to behave well – specifically skills related to problem solving,
flexibility and frustration tolerance. The CPS approach avoids the use of power, control and motivational procedures
and instead focuses on building helping relationships and teaching skills largely through a process of teaching parents
and kids how to resolve chronic problems collaboratively.

All Parent‐to‐Parent Overview Groups are confidential. They provide an opportunity to:

  •  Gain a new understanding of challenging behavior and a new way of helping your child
  • Improve your relationship, reduce conflicts, and help develop the skills your child needs to succeed
  • Gain support from other parents

Who should attend? Parents, foster, adoptive, step-parents and/or grandparents raising
kids with behavioral challenges who are interested in learning about CPS.
