CIRCLE OF SECURITY
At times all parents feel lost or without a clue about what our child might need from us. Imagine what it might feel like if you were able to make sense of what your child was really asking from you? The Circle of Security® Parenting™ (COS-P) program is based on decades of research about how secure parent-child relationships can be supported and strengthened.
Using the COS-P model developed by the Circle of Security originators, our trained Facilitators work with parents and caregivers to help:
• Understand their child’s emotional world by learning to read emotional needs
• Support their child’s ability to successfully manage emotions
• Enhance the development of their child's self esteem
• Honor the innate wisdom and desire for their child to be secure
We have created the series to maximize conversation and individual questions or concerns so space is limited for each workshop. We encourage couples to take the workshop together as a way to increase co-parenting and communication efforts around attachment and bonding. The series is co-facilitated by two instructors and light snacks will be provided.
Both partners are required to attend all events in the series. There is no refund or discount for missing sessions in the workshop; cancellations must be made in writing to firstname.lastname@example.org
Cancellations for the series made two weeks before the event or earlier are entitled to a refund, minus a $50 processing fee. Cancellations made after the two week deadline are refunded at 50% of the workshop cost.
We can work with you to reschedule your attendance to the next available workshop. If you are unable to make the next workshop date, you will be refunded at 50% of the workshop cost.
If you find yourself sick the night before or morning of the series, please notify us immediately - we want to be respectful of pregnant participants or new babies in attendance and want you to be able to take care of yourself! Depending on schedules, the facilitators will discuss opportunities for a make-up session (additional fees may apply).
Thank you for your respect of the time and energy required to run this series.
