Circle of Security Parenting

This parenting approach offers relationship tools to help you understand your child’s needs. It aims to create lasting security for them, and a feeling of satisfaction for parents that they’re doing the best they can for their children. 

The circle of security

COS-P is an 8-session program, parents and carers are encouraged to look beyond their children’s behaviour and identify and respond to what the child’s behaviour is saying. Through this course, parents and carers will gain a new understanding of how they can strengthen their relationship with their children.

This programs help children experience:

  • Greater self-esteem

  • Better relationships with parents and peers

  • Enhanced school readiness

  • An increased capacity to handle emotions.

This short video reviews the importance of human connection and how the Circle of Security helps caregivers orient to young children’s attachment needs.
