Circle Of Security Parenting™
At times all parents feel lost or without a clue about what our child might need from us. Imagine what it might feel like if you were able to make sense of what your child was really asking from you.
The Circle of Security Parenting™ is an 8-week program of simple, powerful classes providing a roadmap to help navigate daily interactions with your children. It is intended for parents of children ages 0-6 but is also a useful tool for teen or adult relationships. COS-P is based on decades of research about how secure parent-child relationships can be supported and strengthened.
Learning Objectives of the Program:
Understand your child’s emotional world by learning to read the emotional needs
Support your child’s ability to successfully manage emotions
Enhance the development of your child's self esteem
Honor your innate wisdom and desire for your child to be secure
Who benefits from Circle Of Security Parenting™?
The simple answer is "everyone."
Though this model is based on decades of child attachment research, all relationships (whether child, teen or adult) can benefit from some deceptively simple shifts in our understanding of verbal and non-verbal communication of needs - and our own triggers. COS-P is a trauma informed model, developed throughout via interaction with parents who struggled with profoundly traumatic histories.
