About the Course

This book study will provide participants with an opportunity to explore the ways to help students with challenging behaviors be more successful at school and in life. The book works to help educators and parents see challenging student behaviors in more productive and empathetic ways by building relationships and finding non-punitive, proactive and collaborative solutions. The book utilizes a model called Collaborative & Proactive Solutions (CPS) which has been updated in the current edition based on new research. There is also a revised key assessment, The Assessment of Lagging Skills and Unsolved Problems (ALSUP) included that helps educators and students work together in the problem-solving process to transform school discipline.

I learned a lot from this book and it really helped reframe my thinking about how to deal with challenging behavior. The instructor was great. She was very flexible and accommodating for those of us who took this class who aren't traditional teachers. I can't wait to try the techniques from this book on some students!
