Circle of Security Parenting Program – The Gap, Brisbane

The Circle of Security Parenting™ is a program developed from a large body of research in attachment between a child and the primary caregiver. Attachment theory emphasizes the significance of secure bonding between a child and their caregiver. The Circle of Security Parenting™ program uses principals of attachment theory to provide a road map to identifying a child’s needs, promoting secure parent-child bonding.  

Rather than parenting programs that teach techniques or scripts, this evidence-based program considers the uniqueness of each family and their circumstances and aims to strengthen the ‘child-parent’ relationship as the strongest tool in facilitating a child’s developmental needs. ‘Good enough’ parenting is a concept for every parent, because perfection is a myth and trying to achieve perfection can leave parents discouraged and burnt out. This program is about reflecting on who you are as a parent, what you bring to your child-parent interaction, and how to provide security that is the foundation of your child’s development. 

Why might this program be helpful?  

Secure attachment has proven links to a child/person’s future adjustment, self-esteem, well-being and even educational outcomes. This program is completed across the world, and the principals are confidently applicable to neurodivergent parents and children.  

If you feel unsure whether you are a ‘good enough’ parent, you don’t feel you understand your child, or you feel your child is a problem, this program is a great place to start.
