NESCA Clinical Staff Trained in Collaborative Problem Solving

Thu, 14 Aug 2008 07:01:00 GMT

NESCA Director Dr. Ann Helmus reported that In mid-July, 2008, her group's entire clinical staff of neuropsychologists and other specialists successfully completed two days of intensive training in the "collaborative problem-solving approach" to treating so-called "explosive kids", that is, children who have been labeled as unmotivated or even willfully oppositional or defiant, and given to uncontrollable emotional outbursts. This ground-breaking technique builds upon the philosophy that in terms of meeting parental, academic or social expectations, "children do well if they can," and that if they can't, it's because something--an unsolved problem or lagging cognitive skill--is getting in their way.
