The Circle of Security Parenting Program is a group-based program teaching participants to parent with wisdom and growth. Parents will learn how to protect and nurture their children, while fostering their independence. They’ll gain tools to understand their child’s behavior, support their child in managing their emotions, and help them develop self-esteem.
Using the Circle of Security model, this free 8-week group program trains parents in ways to support and strengthen relationships with their children. Drawing on decades of attachment theory research, the model encourages empathetic discussion to help parents connect to and create secure attachment with the children in their lives. Participants meet weekly in an intimate group to reflect, share, and learn with one another and with trained facilitators. Groups may be held via telehealth or in-person.
This program meets requirements for ACS mandated parenting courses and annual recertification hours for foster parents.
