Parenting Training in Think:Kids Collaborative Problem Solving Approach
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? Then this training is for you.
Think:Kids Collaborative Problem Solving parenting model, based in MGH’s Department of Psychiatry, provides parents with concrete tools to better understand and help children (ages 3-18) with challenging behavior – from ordinary, day-to-day challenges like getting to school, homework and bedtime, to 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.
