D3 Collaborative Problem Solving: An Overview of the Trauma-Informed Approach to Working with Youth and Families

Collaborative Problem Solving is a trauma-informed and evidence-based approach that is disseminated through Think: Kids based at Massachusetts General Hospital.

This workshop provides a brief overview of the philosophy and approach for use with challenging youth and their families. Participants will gain an understanding of how to use the philosophy to rethink challenging kids in terms of lagging thinking skills, and how to build helping relationships within families through solving problems durably and collaboratively.
