Be The Parent You Want To Be

A NESCA Workshop in New Hampshire:
"Be The Parent You Want To Be" A New Way of Parenting Kids

Think:Kids Collaborative Problem Solving parenting model is a strength-based, neurologically-grounded approach created by Massachusetts General Hospital's Department of Psychiatry that provides parents with concrete tools to better understand and parent their children (ages 3+) through adolescence in the face of ordinary, day-to-day challenges – e.g., getting to school, screen time, homework, bedtime – to more serious challenges.

It’s based on the understanding that many kids lack the skill, not the will, to behave well – 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 focuses instead on building healthy relationships and thinking skills.

This All-day Workshop Will Help Parents To:

  • Shift their thinking and approach to foster positive relationships with their child/teenager
  • Reduce their child's challenging behavior
  • Solve problems collaboratively and proactively
  • Build their child/teen's skills in self-regulation, communication and problem-solving

Host: Dr. Angela Currie, PH.D, NESCA Pediatric Neuropsychologist

Dr. Currie specializes in the evaluation of psychiatric disorders in children and adolescents, anxiety in particular, conducting both neuropsychological and projective assessments. She also sees clients in NESCA’s Londonderry, New Hampshire office.
