Circle of Security Parenting Enrichment Program.
The impact of the family system – especially parenting – is understood to leave long lasting impressions on children. From being a child’s teacher, mentor, and protector, parents serve in many roles for their children. To optimally prepare for success, parents look for strategies and interventions to assist them in promoting individual and family resiliency. Various studies have found that parent-training courses often aid in decreasing parent stress and increasing perceived competency in ability (Neece et al., 2012; Meirsschaut et al., 2010). Others have described how parents feel more capable in handing difficult parenting challenges when exposed to workshops or direct interventions rather than personal research (Keen et al., 2010). One well-known, evidence-based parenting intervention is called Circle of Security.
