Circle of Security

Circle of Security is an internationally acclaimed and evidenced based program, drawing on 50 years of research into attachment. It is a structured, DVD-based group for parents/carers with babies and toddlers. The program runs for 8 weeks for 2 hours.

The group aims to support parents by teaching new ways to understand their children’s needs and behaviours and then to learn effective ways to respond. In this way the parent-child relationships are improved, and the child’s sense of security is enhanced. This is also an opportunity for parents to reflect on their own experiences of being parented and how it impacts on their parenting. In such an  environment, parents can focus not only on their difficulties but their strengths and benefit from the experience of sharing with others.
