The Parent Resource Centre offers the Circle of Security® Parenting™ program both in Group
Sessions at the Centre and In-home. This program helps caregivers find ways to enhance secure
attachment between themselves and their child(ren).
The Circle of Security® Parenting™ program is based on decades of research about how secure
parent-child relationships can be supported and strengthened.
Using the COSP™ model Parent Resource Centre facilitators work with parents and caregivers
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
Honor the innate wisdom and desire for their child to be secure
During the program, caregivers will have the opportunity to:
Explore the path to secure attachment
Explore the concept that behaviour is a form of communication.
Explore the specific needs that children have when they are exploring and when they need
Explore the concept of being Bigger, Stronger, Wiser and Kind (BSWK).
Explore the concept of being available for our children’s emotions.
Explore the concept of “shark music”- when children’s emotions cause caregivers to feel
Explore how relationships between caregivers and children can be repaired.
Explore the concept of time in versus time out.
