The Children’s Sangha works on behalf of children, young adults, families and schools. The foundation of our Community Support Group (established in 2008) is the Collaborative & Proactive Solutions (CPS) approach developed by Dr. Ross W. Greene geared to assist adults in solving problem situations with children/young adults while building lagging skills in the process.
CPS is an approach applicable to everyone! We all have different abilities and needs. Initially intended for parents and educators, we invite high school and college students to join our group to learn more. Young people can take this opportunity to see challenges through new lenses and how to solve problem situations that may be a cause of anxiety. Connect with one another through open discussion and obtain resource information and support.
Christine Keller, who has received advanced training in the CPS approach, facilitates our group and is often joined by either Dr. Monica DeSchryver or Dr. Lisa LoPinto who are certified CPS providers. Questions about how to apply CPS in the home or school setting are common topics.
Based on community request, we will be offering a special lunchtime learning session this month to review CPS Basics with Dr. Monica DeSchryver. Some families have difficulty being out during evening hours. We are happy to accommodate! We will be offering remote on-line access to our Community Support Group with Dr. Lisa LoPinto in November!
At our Community Support Group, Open Forum, participants are encouraged to bring any unsolved problems they would like to discuss as well as begin to think about lagging skills that might be getting in the way. See the Assessment of Lagging Skills and Unsolved Problems (ALSUP) Sheet Assessment of Lagging Skills and Unsolved Problems Sheet and the accompanying guide: Assessment of Lagging Skills and Unsolved Problems Guide. You may submit your ALSUP to us for review before the meeting through the link below.
Please complete our Community Support Group membership application. An annual donation is requested for participating adults (membership includes CPS Training). No fee for students. We welcome you to be part of our collaborative community!
