What is Collaborative Problem Solving?
Collaborative Problem Solving (CPS) is an evidence-based model based on neurobiological research. It allows caregivers and professionals to address challenging youth behaviors through empowerment, empathy, and mutual solving of the shared problems that tend to cause behaviors. The model is rooted in the Think:Kids program at Massachusetts General Hospital.

Through the collaboration, we helped make sure that this useful resource helped train and support caregivers, teachers and providers of all stripes understand that kids do well when they can.
