The science is clear: kids do well if they can, not because they want to. So why do so many approaches to parenting rely on motivating kids to want to do better?

Join with other parents for a four week series that will explore the foundations of Collaborative Problem Solving, an evidence-based approach to challenging behavior that is grounded in relationship and skill building. Together, we’ll learn more about the root causes of challenging behavior and what can be done to help our kids build the tools for success. Participants will learn skills every week they can put to use immediately, and will have the opportunity to workshop these skills in community with other parents.

Since 2011, Ed Morales, MPP, MSW, LICSW has worked with more than 1,000 kids and their families as a school social worker, therapist, and now trainer and consultant. An adoptive parent of two amazing daughters, Ed combines his knowledge of trauma child development and challenging behavior with real-world, on the ground experience gleaned from years of experience in schools and at home.
