An evidence-based parenting workbook based on the highly acclaimed I Can Problem Solve (ICPS) violence prevention program for children. This unique workbook, available in English or Spanish, serves as the ideal ICPS parent involvement component but also stands alone as an essential parent resource for dealing with typical parent-child and child-child difficulties. Workbook pages are filled with dozens of inviting activities that help parents guide and children ages 4-7 to play games and color as they learn develop cognitive skills and social-emotional awareness. Situations include everything from a child's wanting attention while the parent is busy to teasing and fighting over toys to going to bed on time. The workbook also covers many positive situations-helping with household chores, sharing, comforting a hurt friend, and more. By engaging in these activities and using a special kind of problem-solving talk called ICPS dialoguing, parents help children learn how to think, not what to think. With practice, children learn to think about what they do and why they do it, choose solutions based on consequences, negotiate for what they want, cope with frustration, and understand their own and others' feelings.

The award-winning, evidence-based violence prevention and intervention program for children. I Can Problem Solve (ICPS) is a universal school-based program designed to enhance the interpersonal cognitive processes and problem-solving skills of children in preschool through grade 6. Developed by Myrna B. Shure for three age groups and supported by 25 years of meticulous research, ICPS is proven to prevent and reduce early high-risk behaviors such as impulsivity and social withdrawal and to promote prosocial behaviors such as concern for others and positive peer relationships. ICPS for Preschool: Structured Lessons: A total of 59 lessons, each with an easy-to-follow teacher script, guide children's learning of essential ICPS vocabulary and concepts and problem-solving skills (alternative solutions, consequences, solution-consequence pairs). Interaction in the Classroom: Teachers and students learn a whole new way to communicate, using ICPS dialoging, a special technique of problem-solving talk. The result is an improved classroom climate with less conflict and more cooperation. Integration into the Curriculum: Children practice ICPS problem-solving concepts as they work on math, reading, science, social studies, and other academic subjects. Parent Pages: Parents learn to use ICPS skills to improve family interaction and generalize children's learning. Lessons speak to children on their own level, using games, stories, puppets, illustrations, and role-plays. A key program principle is that the child, not the teacher, must solve the problem at hand. In other words, ICPS teaches children how to think, not what to think.

While parents prepare for the birth of their children with trips to the doctor and birthing classes, parenthood itself requires on the job training. Here, Johnston invites parents to explore their own childhood experiences and memories in order to better understand the parenting challenges they face daily, and to accept that children raise parents as much as parents raise children. With tips, stories, and exercises, she guides parents through the various developmental stages of their children, and illustrates how we can make each moment count, one interaction at a time.

This volume is the product of a combined effort to find programs of service delivery that demonstrably treat the varieties of mental health problems of children and their families. The Section on Clinical Child Psychology (APA, Clinical Psychology Section I) and the Division of Child, Youth, and Family Services (APA, Division 37) established a task force whose mission was to identify, provide recognition for, and disseminate information on such programs. Their findings are presented here. The opening chapter and each section overview chapter provide orientations to the program descriptions and examine characteristics of exemplary interventions. The targeted problems include: child abuse and neglect, school adjustment problems, social problem-solving problems, autism and developmental disabilities, conduct disorders and severe emotional problems, children affected by disasters and trauma, children whose parents are divorced, children of teenage parents, family dysfunction and parent-child relationships, oppositional defiant disorder, and attention deficit disorder. Settings for interventions in the model programs include: schools, mental health centers and family guidance clinics, hospitals and pediatric practices, group homes and sheltered workshops, community centers, family homes, summer camps, and coordinated systems of care. The 18 programs described demonstrate the rationale for their interventions, their targeted populations, the type of staff and personnel, various programmatic interventions, aspects of the problems, implementation of interventions, and how the programs have been evaluated. The needs for improved mental health services remain strong. The supporting organizations and the members of the Task Force intend for the product of this project to be helpful in providing models for meeting those needs.
