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 the emotional needs• Understand what gets in the way of your meeting those needs and how to navigate those obstacles.• Support your child’s ability to successfully manage emotions• Enhance the development of your child’s self esteem• Develop strategies of what to do when you inevitably make parenting mistakes• Honor your innate wisdom and desire for your child to be secureHow does a COS-P group work?The COS-P program uses video vignettes of child-parent interactions and parent interviews, visual diagrams, music, and more to present the idea of the “circle of security.” These instructional materials are interspersed with group discussions and personal reflections.
