Parent and Community Trainings


The Circle of Security® Parenting program is based on decades of research about how secure parent-child relationships can be supported and strengthened and helps us make sense of what our children are really asking from us. This is a 8-week course that utilizes video clips to present information about The Circle as well as examples of parents using The Circle with their children. Groups are a mix of watching video clips to learn new concepts and discussing and reflecting on our own experiences. This program is appropriate for all parents, those looking to learn a bit more, those who are struggling in their relationship with their child, as well as new parents, foster and adoptive parents!

Let's explore and play! Using our understanding of sensory processing and co-regulation, we will look more specifically into strategies for yourself as well as to do with your child. If you are new to these, we will catch you up!

Learn how to determine which strategy to use in the moment and what types of things to try for different parts of the day. Time for question and answer will be reserved so you can get some ideas specific to your child!
