February 8: Community Support Group

We look forward to meeting with Community Support Group members and new participants this month! Please feel free to invite others. All are welcome! Dr. Lisa LoPinto will be in attendance for our first meeting of the New Year 2019. And we will introduce Zoom video conferencing for those who are unable to attend our meetings in person.

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 our young people in solving problem situations with the assistance of adults while building lagging skills in the process. View the Assessment of Lagging Skills and Unsolved Problems Sheet and feel free to bring a completed copy to the meeting for guidance.

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 are common topics. Learn how to view challenges through new lenses and navigate problem situations. Connect with one another through open discussion and obtain resource information and support. Young adults may also participate! CPS is an approach applicable to everyone! We all have different abilities and needs. We welcome you to be part of our collaborative community!

In the case of inclement weather/snow, we will reschedule our meeting to Friday, March 8th (same time).
