Vision and Mission Statement
Create Behavior Solutions (CBS) provides individualized support and guidance to families of all backgrounds. CBS uses evidence-based strategies to support families in how to prevent and respond to behaviors of concern.
Our goal is to empower parents with the science of behavior – utilizing evidence-based strategies to support the wellbeing of the whole family. Our aim is to educate parents to gain new skills and thrive as an effective parent. We guide parents to make goals based on what matters most to them. We believe that cultivating psychological flexibility helps both parents and children to adapt and thrive. Our goal is to help parents understand their child’s behavior and build positive behavior patterns.
We want to support parents not just to survive parenting but to enjoy it.
We believe that everyone can learn new things; including new ways of handling difficult situations. There is not a one-size-fits-all solution for behavior concerns; each person has unique needs that should be carefully considered. We know that all behavior is shaped by environment and context; every behavior serves a function. When we understand what a behavior is communicating and why it is happening then we can address that need through effective strategies for prevention, accommodation and skill building.
We believe that parenting remains the greatest influence on social change and supporting parents will have a positive impact on current and future communities. We acknowledge that we all contribute to the health and wellbeing of society and we are committed to doing our part to work towards social justice and environmental sustainability. We believe that open, honest communication facilitates the need for building understanding, respecting differences and accepting diversity of all kinds. We seek to create an atmosphere of trust, respect and growth. Our values are guided by flexibility, humility, transparency, inclusion, empathy and collaboration.
The Science of Behavior
Create Behavior Solutions provides a service approach based in Contextual Behavioral Science, Applied Behavior Analysis, and Acceptance & Commitment Therapy. We utilize the science of behavior to help understand and improve the human condition.
Contextual Behavioral Science is a new form of behavior science that is grounded in a contextual view of life which seeks to develop concepts and methods that are useful in predicting and influencing the actions of an individual or group. Contextual Behavioral Science is rooting in Behavior Analysis and has been the birth place for Acceptance and Commitment therapy and Relational Frame Theory.
Behavior Analysis is the scientific study of the principles of learning and behavior. Behavior Analysis is focused on using the scientific principles of behavior to improve quality of life by teaching new skills and decreasing behaviors of concern.
Acceptance and Commitment Therapy is a branch of clinical Behavior Analysis which aims to improve psychological flexibility. Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (or Training) is a mindfulness-based approach to help people move toward their valued behavior.
