IPTI Speaker Series: Expanding the Circle of Security: A Panel Presentation to Examine the Mindset Shift from Changing Behaviour to Understanding What the Behaviour 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.
