Collaborative Problem Solving Workshop
Tier 1 Intensive Training Workshop
Presented By: Randi Cooper and Jordan Spikes
Workshop Purpose: Northwest Regional ESD is proud to offer an intensive training workshop in the Collaborative Problem Solving (CPS) approach based on the book “Treating the Explosive Child” (Ablon, Greene). Presented by Think:Kids certified professional trainers, Randi Cooper, M.Ed., and Jordan Spikes.
This 2‐1/2 day intensive training is intended for educators, mental health clinicians, parents, and community partners. Relationally based, CPS views challenging behavior as a learning disability 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 (preschool—adolescence), we (educators, parents, clinicians) are better able to intervene to support children through a collaborative process of teaching skills and solving problems.
