I Can Problem Solve: Intermediate elementary grades
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 Intermediate Elementary Grades
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.
