About the course

Do you have complex behaviour contexts to manage in your primary class setting?

Collaborative & Proactive Solutions (CPS) is an evidenced based framework that can be incorporated into the
professional practice of the classroom teacher to work with students to support skill development. The body of
research supporting the effectiveness of the CPS model in diverse setting continues to grow.

CPS is a skill acquisition model whereby lagging skills are identified and solution
focused frameworks are used. These are applied within the context of helping relationships to address lagging
skills and develop new pathways to address difficulties for our challenged students.

CPS is being used in North Metro SSENBE to engage with complex behaviour support.

This workshop will focus on the framework and how it can be employed in a primary school setting. It is a trauma
informed approach to working with complex behaviour presentations in the class setting. 


During this event participants will:

  • View the Collaborative & Proactive Solutions model.
  • Explore the philosophy and perspectives that underpin the CPS approach.
  • Learn the structures of the CPS approach:
    • How to identify lagging skills through the ALSUP.
    • How to define identified problems and difficulties.
    • Learn the Plan B approach.
    • How we use a Plan B approach to address student difficulties.
    • How where and when to use Plan B to support our students.
  • Explore how CPS can be employed in the school setting.
