    Announcing 2016 workshops: BE THE PARENT YOU WANT TO BE! A New Way of Understanding and Parenting Challenging Kids

    Do you ever feel frustrated with your child? Find yourself shouting often and imposing punishments or rewards in reaction to challenging behavior? Do you wish you had a more effective parenting approach that also helps to build a better relationship between you and your child? Think:Kids Collaborative Problem Solving (CPS) approach, based in MGH’s Department of Psychiatry, provides parents with concrete tools to better understand and parent their kids in the face of day-to-day challenges – e.g., getting to school, homework, screen time, bedtime – and more serious challenges. It’s based on the understanding that many kids lack the skill, not the will, to behave well – specifically skills related to problem solving, flexibility and frustration tolerance. This CPS approach helps parents to:

    1. Shift their thinking and approach to foster positive relationships with their child;
    2. Reduce their child’s challenging behavior;
    3. Solve problems collaboratively and proactively;
    4. Help their child develop skills related to self-regulation, communication and problem-solving.
