Please join us for our Community Support Group this month with Dr. Lisa LoPinto who will review the Collaborative & Proactive Solutions (CPS) approach – Plans and Steps in relation to Self-Care! CPS was developed by Dr. Ross W. Greene to assist families and schools in working with young people to solve problems and build skills, minimizing challenging behavior.
The CPS Plans and Steps provide a framework to not take on more than anyone can handle. Selecting specific problems situations to address over others involves personal priorities. And “Plan C’ing” other problems or putting them on-hold for the time-being, provides room for everyone to take care of themselves while still moving forward with problem solving. Whether it be during the COVID-19 pandemic or beyond, it is helpful to learn how to work together towards common goals as we navigate difficult experiences. And we will introduce the field Positive Psychology, delving deeper at our next Community Support Group meeting, to introduce opportunities to move away from learned helplessness to learned optimism and improve resilience which an be combined with and/or complement the CPS approach.
This is an open forum to answer questions and address issues of importance to attendees. Parents and professional as well as high school or college students welcome! Dr. LoPinto is a clinical psychologist in private practice who also offers a 10-week CPS Parent Skills classes seasonally. She is a certified CPS provider/trainer who consults with, trains and offers school district supervisions in the CPS approach.
NOTE: We have moved “Kids Who Fall Through the Cracks” to September. And we will be doing a full group meeting in May about moving from learned helplessness to learned optimism based on tips from the field of Positive Psychology.
