Residential Treatment Programs Pollastri, A. Stewart, S. This report documents the effectiveness of the Collaborative Problem Solving approach in a residential setting. The report is the first systematic study to demonstrate effectiveness of CPS in settings where it is often implemented — residential treatment, and it documents improvement in child functioning across several areas including significant gains in the development of specific social skills.
