CPS model, and coverage of the nuances of
assessment and engaging kids in solving the problems that affect their

You don’t have to participate on both days.

On Day One, Dr. Greene will provide a general overview of the Collaborative and Proactive Solutions Model of Care (CPS) model, including key themes, use of assessment instrumentation, and solving problems collaboratively.

On Day Two he will dive deeper into various facets of the model, with extensive use of video examples and ample time for questions and discussion.

At the conclusion of this training, participants will:

  • Describe the five big shifts of the CPS model, including focusing on problems rather than behaviors, the advantages of collaborative (rather than unilateral) problem solving, and the importance and feasibility of proactive (rather than reactive) intervention.
  • Identify the lagging skills and unsolved problems using the Assessment of Lagging Skills and Unsolved Problems (ALSUP).
  • Describe the three basic mechanisms by which adults handle unsolved problems and unmet expectations in kids (Plans A, B, and C) and what is accomplished by each, and the three steps or “ingredients” of Plan B.
  • Describe how to effectively implement Plan B to solve problems, teach skills, and reduce the frequency and intensity of challenging behavior.
  • Identify the strategies for dealing with the various structural factors in schools that may impede implementation of the CPS model.
  • Describe and deal with the roadblocks commonly encountered in implementation with individual children and in families and systems.
