CPS is a strengths-based, neurobiologically-grounded approach that brings new ideas and new hope for helping those with behavioral challenges. The CPS approach is based on more than 30 years of research in the neurosciences that demonstrates that challenging kids lack the skill, not the will, to behave well – specifically skills related to problem solving, flexibility, and frustration tolerance. Therefore, unlike traditional models of discipline, the CPS approach avoids the use of power, control, and motivational procedures and instead focuses on building helping relationships and teaching skills largely through a process of teaching parents and loved ones how to resolve chronic problems collaboratively.
