I Can Problem Solve (ICPS) Implementation Training - Event Information
Event Date and Time
ICPS is an evidence-based curriculum that builds interpersonal thinking and problem-solving skills for children, ages 4-12. ICPS Implementation Training will prepare training participants to identify the research-based skills that support the philosophy of ICPS. Participants will learn concepts and pedagogical strategies involved in implementing the ICPS program with fidelity with children in the United States; understand the four major pre-problem-solving skills and the three major problem-solving skills needed to implement the ICPS curriculum components; and teach these skills to children. Trainees will demonstrate use of ICPS Vocabulary Word Pairs and Feeling concepts in non-problem- and problem-solving situations and practice teaching students how to generate alternative solutions, anticipate consequences, and effectively solve problems. Collaborative for Academic, Social and Emotional Learning (CASEL) acknowledges ICPS as an SELect program (its highest recognition).
Participants are expected to attend each ICPS virtual training session in its entirety in order to implement ICPS with children. Sessions will be facilitated by two ICPS International Trainers. Training participants are provided with two hours of virtual consultation with their training cohort to support ICPS implementation.
Training Dates: March 9, 10, 16, 17, 2022 | Virtual (attendance required for each session)
