Collaborative & Proactive Solutions

FamilyForward's St. Louis County Site 11358 Van Cleve Ave, Saint Louis

Formerly known as Collaborative Problem Solving, the originator Dr. Ross Greene works under the assumption that children do well if they can. By viewing challenging behavior as a deficit in cognitive skills, specifically the domains of flexibility/adaptability, frustration tolerance and problem solving, parents can view their child through sympathetic eyes. Parents practice the three steps of collaborative problem solving: Empathy Step, Define the Problem Step and Invitation Step. To register, call 314.968.2350 ext. 7234 or email
