CPS was developed at Harvard and is specifically designed to treat children and adolescents who display unsafe behaviors. The approach involves teaching children and adolescents the skill they lack rather than providing rewards and consequences.

Such disorders include, but are not limited to, depression, mood disorders, oppositional defiance, post-traumatic stress, anger management, trauma intervention and specialized family and caregiver services. The program offers a greater level of clinical intervention as pre-adolescents and adolescents are most likely to make changes when they become therapeutically engaged in the treatment process and establish healthy relationships.
