The CPS Approach: is an evidence-based, trauma-informed method to responding to challenging behavior that promotes the understanding that challenging kids lack the skill - not the will - to behave; specifically, skills related to problem-solving, flexibility and frustration tolerance. Unlike traditional models of discipline, the CPS approach avoids the use of power, control and motivational procedures and instead focuses on collaborating with the child/ youth/ young adult to solve the problems leading to challenging behavior and building the skills they need to succeed. Learning Objectives: � Assess the latest science related to the impact of adversity and trauma on young people. � Explore the implications for your everyday work � Analyze the key ingredients of the Collaborative Problem Solving approach. � Assess the latest research and evidence in preparation for application in child services. 6 CE Credits are available for Psychologists, LCSWs and LMFTs � CPA Accredited: Vista del Mar Child and Family Services is approved (VIS-002) by the California Psychological Association (CPA) to provide continuing professional education for psychologists.

In order to help make everyone's work schedules a little easier, we have condensed our 2-Day Parent Partner training down to a single day. All of the material from the two days is still covered in detail, but it is now a more convenient training when it comes to Parent Partners with tight schedules. With the recent changes in Wraparound implementation in LA County around the use of the traditional Plan of Care document, the LATC has put our POC training on hold. However, LA County is still using the Family Safety Crisis Plan in their program implementation. Therefore, LATC is now offering just the Safety Crisis Planning training as a single day for easier scheduling and more cost effective training solution.
Happy New Year everyone! The LATC is gearing up for a busy 2018. Our 2018 calendar is currently open or registrations for all of 2018. In addition to Wraparound programs, many of our training modules also apply to LA County intensive Home-Based Services (IHBS) programs as well.
