Programs For Parents & Carers
CIRCLE OF SECURITY (COS) is an attachment based parenting program that looks at the attachment between children and caregivers. This 8 weeks program helps caregivers to understand the importance of being seen, soothed and safe to build secure relationships to help enrich the connection and emotional capacity of caregivers.
This therapeutic group aims to protect and nurture children who have experienced stressful life events. Through the use of symbols such as family, pets, friends, places and events, participants can tap into their internal knowledge and strengths, and together, design and create a blanket, which is a representation of sustained strength during times of difficulty – an Angel Blanket. This program is for both parents and teens.
