Are you a parent or caregiver age 18+ of young children? Do you often ask the following questions?

“What does my child need from me?”

“Why is my child behaving this way?”

“What can I do to manage the behaviour?”

“Why do some of these behaviours affect me the way they do?”

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

Learning Objectives of the Training:

  • Understand your child’s emotional world by learning to read their emotional needs
  • Support your child’s ability to successfully manage their emotions
  • Enhance the development of your child’s self esteem
  • Honor your innate wisdom and desire for your child to be secure

Everyday examples of “secure and problematic parent-child interaction” are depicted in video clips, making this program interactive and reflective!

Years of attachment research shows children who feel safe and secure are more likely to have better relationships with siblings, peers, and parents, higher self-esteem, better problem solving skills, trusting relationships with loved ones and the ability to empathize with others compared to children who are not secure.

Please note: This is a group for parents and caregivers only, child participation is not required. Commitment to attend all 8 sessions is necessary for maximum benefit.


Are your children under 10 years old?
