Expanding the Circle of Security

Expanding the Circle of Security: A Panel Presentation to Examine the Mindset Shift from Changing Behavior to Understanding What the Behavior is Communicating.

This IPTI Speaker Series presentation will explore the way in which Circle of Security informs our understanding of children’s behavior. The COS-Parenting (COS-P) and COS-Classroom (COS-C) 8-week facilitated group models provide a paradigm shift for parents and early educators. Rather than interpreting challenging child behaviors as attention-seeking, the Circle paradigm sees them as attempts to establish connection. Informed by attachment theory, the Circle of Security video-enhanced curriculum helps caregivers understand that when a child’s underlying need is seen, valued, and met, behavior improves. This relational perspective offers parents and early educators a pathway to strengthening attachments and resilience in children and caretakers.

In this panel presentation we will hear the ways that Circle of Security groups and individualized interventions are used in child welfare systems, early education and care, family day care, parent-child psychotherapy as well as the integration of a socio-cultural lens in the work with immigrant families.
