Circle of Security Parenting Group

The Circle of Security is a relationship-based early intervention program designed to enhance attachment security between parents and children.

Research has confirmed that secure children show increased empathy, greater self-esteem, better relationships with parents and peers, enhanced school readiness, and an increased capacity to handle emotions more effectively when compared with children who are not secure.

This program will help parents raise their children with love, warmth, and emotional intelligence by showing parents how they can connect with their child or children in ways that break old and sometimes destructive patterns of parenting.

This program is a must for all parents!

Dates: 2 August – 20 September 2018
