CIRCLE OF SECURITY® PARENTING (COS-P)™ offers parents and caregivers a roadmap to help them navigate their daily interactions with their children.

Circle of Security® is not about changing our child’s behavior; it’s about changing our relationship with our child. Sometimes our children frustrate, worry, embarrass or exhaust us. Being able to learn what hidden needs are behind such behaviors – and how to meet them – often leads to the very behavior improvement that we are seeking.

This class meets for 1.5 hours over 8 weeks. Video clips of other parents and kids, group discussions, and some helpful images give us the tools we need to handle tough challenges while remaining Bigger, Stronger, Kinder, and Wise. As we learn to self-reflect and see what’s hidden in plain sight, we build more secure attachments with our kids and we decrease the frequency and intensity of their upset and our own.
