[ENGLISH] Circle of Security Parenting Course

The Circle of Security program is an internationally recognised parenting course based on decades of parent-child attachment research. While focusing on infants and young children, it is suitable for parents of children of all ages. This six-session (two hours each session) course is 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, aiming at building a loving and secure relationship with your child.

Dr Yixin Jiang Xu   is a registered Circle of Security Parenting Facilitator who runs this course for you. Yixin was born in Shanghai and grew up in Sydney after migrating to Australia in 1993. She completed her PhD in 2016 from the University of Sydney, and also holds a Bachelor of Psychology (Honours).
