Collaborative Problem Solving™ is an evidence-based, trauma informed approach to behavior management based on the idea that challenging kids lack the skill – not the will – to behave; specifically, skills related to problem-solving, flexibility and frustration tolerance. Unlike traditional models of discipline, CPS avoids the use of power, control and motivational procedures and instead focuses on collaborating with youth to solve the problems leading to their challenging behavior.
