The Circle of Security is a user-friendly map of child behavior and emotions. Using this map helps parents answer the questions:
"Why does my child behave that way?"
"What do they need?"
"How can I best help them grow up?"
The Circle is based on 50 years of research and is being used world wide to help children be happier and more responsive to their parents, develop self-control, get along better with friends and teachers, and grow to be competent in adolescence and adulthood.
Class Description: The Circle of Security can help parents find the key and unlock the mystery to difficult child behaviors, giving parents renewed feelings of success and confidence. In fact, it helps all of us parents feel the way we want to feel toward our children: Bigger, Stronger, Wiser, and Kind.
The Circle of Security class includes archived taped sessions of other real children interacting with their parents, providing good examples of your child's moment-to-moment behavior. Participants will have hands-on practice in identifying emotional cues, reading through miscues, and generating ideas for helping kids behave better.
Caregiver Goals: The Circle of Security approach is designed to help caregivers:
Discover what is going on inside their child during times of upset and misbehavior
Determine what the child needs in the moment to be able to calm down, listen, and learn
Choose a strategy to meet the child's need and shape his behavior
Experience more love, cooperation, and joy form their children
Feel happier and more successful with their children
Children's Programming: While parents are in class, trained Childcare Providers spend time doing activities with the children that will increase their ability to recognize how their bodies feel and their ability to calm themselves down during times of upset. Children will work on being able to describe how they are feeling (Example: happy, mad, sad, tired, surprised, etc.) and learn techniques like deep breathing that will help calm their bodies down. Childcare Providers also do brain development activities with the children, like MeMoves and a variety of memory enhancing games.
