Circle of Security Parenting Facilitator Training with Carlos Guerrero – Circle of Security Trainer

April 22nd- 25th

About the Program

Circle of Security has established a parenting reflection program offering the core components of the evidence-based and internationally acclaimed COS protocol. This 4-Day seminar trains professionals to use an eight chapter DVD to reflect with parents and caregivers. The program presents video examples of secure and problematic parent/child interaction, healthy options in caregiving, and animated graphics designed to clarify principles central to COS. Circle of Security Parenting implements decades of attachment research in an accessible step-by-step process for use in group settings, home visitation, or individual counseling.

“The Circle of Security Parenting DVD is an outstanding contribution and a “must see” for parents of young children. Focusing on how parent/child relationships can be strengthened, this unique approach teaches parents, and those helping them, new ways to understand children’s needs and behavior. It also offers effective ways to respond to these needs and behaviors. I have found it invaluable in my own work with parents of young children.”– Charles H. Zeanah, M.D.
