Parenting Group Programs

Circle of Security Group

For parents/caregivers of children between the ages of 0 and 6.

7 week group program. Currently being offered virtually.

The Circle of Security program is a user-friendly caregiver 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. Sessions stress the importance of parents forming secure attachments with their child(ren) 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 their feelings and behaviours; and
    • Help build a stronger relationship with their child.
