What Is CPS Anyway?

Collaborative & Proactive Solutions is the empirically supported model first articulated by Dr. Ross Greene in his book The Explosive Child. These days, it's being applied to all kids in a wide array of settings.


Our heartfelt thanks to our Advisory Committee members Randi Cutler, Mike Rashes, and Cindy Janower for hosting fundraising events in Boston and Chestnut Hill in September and October...and thanks as well to all those who attended.
