Next 5-Week Course Starts Saturday, May 28 & June 4, 11, 18, 25 2022 @ 10:00am
Are interactions with some students adult/child power struggles?
Does it feel like you are spending 95% of your time on behaviors with 5% of your student population?
Are you tired of struggling with what isn’t working?
Do you want to learn about an approach that is non-coercive, non-punitive, non-controlling?
This 2-hour Overview will introduce looking at children with difficult-to-manage behaviors in a new way! Adult/Child power struggles can leave both parties frustrated with adults wondering how it could have gone differently. Behavioral difficulties are the leading causes of stress and adult|caregiver burnout.
Collaborative Problem Solving®(CPS) offers a new way to understand and help ALL children, regardless of a diagnosis, especially those with difficult-to-manage behaviors, which usually comes with a diagnosis. CPS is an evidence-based, trauma-informed, inclusive, best-practice approach which will help give you insight into what might be getting in the way for those with behavioral challenges, while you learn how to teach to the lagging skills.
There are over 12 million kids with social, emotional, and behavioral challenges in North America alone – many still being treated in ways that are inhumane and ineffective. A heartbreaking number of kids are losing their futures simply because their challenges are poorly understood.
Typically, the public view is that these kids behave badly to get or avoid things. They are thought to be manipulative, unmotivated, disrespectful, limit testing and just generally bad kids. As a result, reward and punishment programs are used in homes, schools, and therapeutic and juvenile detention settings everywhere. HBCC trainings present very different ideas about how challenging kids come to be challenging. And very different – and effective – ideas about how to help.
Debra Ann’s life experiences combined with an extensive education on the social-emotional, trauma informed, inclusive approach, gives her a unique perspective and insight into the challenges faced helping complex children.
HBCC works to make sure that misconceptions and lack of treatment do not continue to be barriers to maximizing ALL children’s potential.
Trainings welcome mental health providers, educators, clinicians, parents, & caregivers.

There are numerous staff coming to me saying things like "I can't believe what we learned that day actually works." or "I was hesitant at first to give so much time for the child to respond but now I realize how awesome it is to give them time to process".

Implementing this has helped me understand what's getting in the way for those students who try so hard and sometimes fail, yet sometimes achieve. Now I can better help them. This has changed my approach!

Debra Ann ... Wonderful feedback from the teachers! Thank you for a worthwhile morning. Our teachers are grounded in what I call the "Guidance Approach" and the fact that Collaborative Problem Solving is a "universal" approach, it fits right in with our program. Because this is not just for the children needing the behavioral interventions, it's concrete and we can continue to say that we are well trained to address behavior issues in a pro-active way and guide students to help build skills. We're having great results with it and the parents like it, too.

Debra Ann - I love how you advocate for children. I have shared much of the information that I was exposed to during the Overview Presentation you provided our staff, administration and teachers. All invaluable.
