At times, we all feel lost or without a clue about what a child might need from us.

Imagine the feeling of making sense of what a child was really asking from you!

The Circle of Security® Parenting™ program is based on decades of research about how secure parent-child relationships can be supported and strengthened.

What is Circle of Security? A ROADMAP TO UNDERSTANDING!
* Eight-chapter Reflective program
* Offers a new way to understand:
o a child’s needs

o how meeting a child’s attachment needs, which in turn, leads the carer to have a more confident presence and a child who is more cooperative and compliant.

o the complexity of the attachment system and how it contributes to infants and toddlers developing a sense of security and competence

o how important relationships contribute to the lives of children

* Increases awareness of attachment with parents, caregivers and others that work with children
Learning Objectives:
• Understand a child’s emotional world by learning to read their emotional needs
• Support a child’s ability to successfully manage emotions
• Enhance the development of a child's self esteem
• A perspective change on behavior (children behave well when they feel safe in love and connection)
• Explore new ways to respond sensitively to a child’s cues.
• Gain insights on managing your own struggles around
certain attachment needs
• To inform and enhance your practice as a therapist

**** THIS IS NOT A TRAINING, this is a reflective group.****
After attending all 8 weeks Circle of Security (COS) does not allow you to train others in COS. They do however, want you to use this knowledge to inform and enhance your practice.

*** You must commit to all 8 weeks in order to receive full credit! Most importantly attending all 8 weeks allows the group to feel a part of safe environment as you will be discussing sensitive information.
