Parenting Group: Circle of Security
7-8 week program (depending on location)
The Circle of Security parent program is a user-friendly parent education program that helps parents better understand the needs of their children. The program is based on years of attachment research about how secure parent-child relationships can be supported and strengthened. Classes stress the importance of parents forming secure attachments with their children by focusing on the caregiver and child interactions; being responsive to their child’s needs; and reflecting on their parental strengths and challenges. The series aims to help parents and caregivers share the best of themselves with their young children.
In group-based sessions, parents learn how to:
- Better understand and respond to their child’s emotional needs
- Help their child manage his or her feelings and behaviours
- Help build a stronger relationship with their child
For Parents of Children 0-6 years of age.
