In Memory of Dr. Myrna B. Shure
We are saddened to learn that our partner and friend, Dr. Myrna B. Shure, program developer for I Can Problem Solve (ICPS), passed away this January. Our thoughts are with her family. Dr. Shure was a trailblazer, paving the way for what we now know as social and emotional learning skills. Her observation, research and application of social and psychological problem-solving benefits social adjustment in young children. Myrna will be greatly missed. We are grateful for our long partnership with Dr. Shure and honored that she has entrusted us to continue to champion her legacy through the ICPS and Raising a Thinking child programs.

What People Are Saying
“It is an amazing program! The participants really do change as they grasp the material. It truly has transformed many families lives here in rural Shawano County, Wisconsin.”
– Family Living Educator
“I love the ICPS ladder for having a meaningful dialogue with students that really does promote critical thinking around solving a problem.”
– Former Principal Who Led the ICPS Implementation Process
“We just finished week 3 of the 8-week curriculum, and the parents really feel that their homes are more calmer, and more dialogue is happening. It is a class I run from 8:30 to 10 p.m. at night. Their kids are in bed and it gives parents time to kick up their feet and spend an hour or so learning some valuable tools to enhance their parenting skills.”
– RaTC Parent Educator
