How Oregon Outreach Helps Achieve Student Success
During February 2014, Oregon Outreach staff was fully trained in the use of Collaborative Problem Solving (CPS). CPS is an approach for responding to challenging behaviors in ways that preserve the integrity of the child while simultaneously building the skills that are lagging that cause the behaviors to be present in the first place.
Relationally based and supported by research, 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, staff are better able intervene to support children through a collaborative process.
