This course presents the Collaborative Problem Solving (CPS) model for treating children who severely resist adult authority and have explosive outbursts. By addressing explosive behavior as an interaction between kids and their caregivers, the CPS model provides practical strategies for helping parents and other caregivers handle conflict successfully. Clinicians learn how to identify cognitive factors leading to explosive behavior and teach kids and caregivers skills for remediating deficits and handling strife. Interventions in schools and in therapeutic/restrictive facilities are included.
