Can you 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.

Through the program, each participant will be given the information and tools that they need to be able to:

  • Recognise that their child’s behaviour is actually communication
  • ‘Be with’ their child through strong and difficult emotions
  • Repair the relationship when a rupture has occurred

The Circle of Security program is an 8-week program that is delivered by a trained facilitator, using a combination of video clips, discussion and hands-on activities. Parents will be guided along a journey where they can reflect on their own experiences as a child and learn about why they respond to situations in the way that they do.

Through the Circle of Security parenting program, parents and caregivers will also learn that in order for a child to learn effectively, they must feel secure and safe and have developed a strong attachment. With this secure attachment comes the confidence and curiosity to become more independent and go out and explore the world because the child knows that whenever they need to – they can return to that safe, secure base for comfort, reassurance and support.

Eight sessions with each session being 2 hours.
