Circle of Security Parenting Program
Circle of Security Parenting is a map for us parents developed out of 50+ years of attachment research. Attachment research is the Science of how we love and what gets in the way of expressing our love. This parenting model is different from a lot of parenting books out there because it doesn’t tell you what to do.
Instead, what makes Circle of Security Parenting different is that the information is presented in a way that gives us parents a clear map of your child’s needs. But how you use the map is up to each individual. No techniques. No To-Do’s. Said plainly, COSP is not a list of techniques like Sticker charts, Swaddling, or rigid bedtimes. However, it is a map with a mirror, that asks you to reflect on your own self. What are you bringing to the table with your history growing up? Are there traumas there that affect how you parent? Of course, everyone has things that they wish were different about their childhood. Circle of Security Parenting allows us the wisdom to parent with reflection and growth – to move beyond being reactive parents.
Our trained Facilitators work with parents and care-givers to help them to:
- Understand their child’s emotional world by learning to read emotional needs
- Support their child’s ability to successfully manage emotions
- Enhance the development of their child’s self esteem
- Honour the innate wisdom and desire for their child to be secure
