Welcome to the Coos-Curry CPS Program!
This program is the first step to implement the Collaborative Problem Solving model into the statewide DHS foster care system.
Here’s what parents have to say
|“It’s a great tool to teach parents how to parent.”||“It builds the relationship instead of tearing it.”|
|“This is a gentler approach to parenting that is trauma-informed; it takes into account kid’s trauma.”||“It’s teaching us to take that step back, that deep breath so we’re not adding to the chaos. And teaching kids how to live without chaos.”|
|“It taught me to be a more positive parent.”||“It’s pulling together strategies from other approaches.”|
|“It teaches children how to be parented – that they can grow, be listened to [by a parent]. If we teach them how to be parented, they can learn how to parent, and we can break the cycle.”||“The approach gives you a chance to take a breath. It reminds you to take a breath, step back and take perspective when faced with challenging behaviors.”|
|“It teaches us to be proactive rather than reactive.”||“CPS supports relationships, and therefore avoids rebellion.”|
