For some of us, resilience comes naturally – we respond well to change, we adapt to circumstance and live happily.  For others it proves much harder.

Imagine if you could learn resilience skills early…

Imagine how much heartache that could save?

“Children exhibit challenging behavior when the demands being placed upon them outstrip the skills they have to respond adaptively to those demands. The same can be said of all human beings.”

Dr. Ross Greene, founder and Director of Lives in the Balance (, originator of Collaborative and Proactive Solutions

Without understanding what is going on for your child, in other words what skills they are lacking, their challenging behaviour often leaves us and other adults in your child’s life confused, frustrated or just angry.  And when grown ups feel that way, our go-to solutions usually involve “consequences”!  Consequences that usually sound like:

“If you do that again, I will…”

“If you don’t stop doing that, I will…”

“If you don’t do as I say, I will…”

As any parent, or someone working with a challenging child knows, such responses rarely work and can actually make the problem worse.

Collaborative and Proactive Solutions (CPS) offers a radical, compassionate and highly effective alternative.  It is a non-punitive, non-adversarial, collaborative skills building and relationship-enhancing intervention that works!

Petros Director Jo Clarke is currently the only Certified CPS Practitioner in the UK and can offer CPS coaching to parents, carers, and professionals, including: teachers, social workers, foster carers, youth workers and mental health workers who work with children with social, emotional and behavioural challenges.
