[ENGLISH] 2019.10.15 Circle of Security Parenting Program 2019


At times all parents feel lost about what our child might need from us. The Circle of Security® Parenting™ program is an internationally recognised parenting course based on decades of parent-child attachment research. The sessions are practical skills-based, using video clips, discussion and handouts to explore children’s emotional needs and build parents’ ability to respond sensitively to those needs. It is suitable for parents of children of all ages, but particularly focuses on infants and young children.

You will learn to:

  • Understand your child’s emotional needs
  • Deal with challenges in responding to your child’s needs
  • Build a loving and secure relationship with your child
