The Circle of Security® is a relationship based early intervention program designed to enhance the connection between parents and children. Decades of university-based research have confirmed that secure children have increased empathy, greater self-esteem, better relationships with parents and friends, enhanced school readiness, and an increased capacity to handle emotions more effectively when compared with children who are not secure.
If you are a new parent, or you're struggling with difficult behaviour in your toddler, don't waste another minute with time-out, rewards charts and punishment.
Using the COSP™ model developed by the Circle of Security originators, our trained Facilitators work with whānau to help them to:
- 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
