Circle of Security® Parenting™ Program (COS-P)

At times, all parents feel lost or without a clue about what our child might need from us. As a parent, we always hope our child came with a manual. Imagine what it might feel like if you were able to make sense of what your child was really asking from you.

When parents face a young kid being afraid of leaving them to explore the environment or a teenager who has challenging behaviours at school, we may not be aware of the early-year relationship with our child is one of the crucial factors. Secure attachment is important to children especially young kids. When a child has formed secure attachment with parents, they become more confident and more willing to explore the environment.

The Circle of Security® Parenting™ program is based on decades of research about how secure parent-child relationships can be supported and strengthened. It is a video-based intervention that strengthens parents’ abilities to observe and improve caregiving skills.

Using the Circle of Security® Parenting™ model developed by the Circle of Security originators, Dr. Fanny Lam works with parents, care-givers, educators and medical professionals to help them to:

  • Understand their child’s emotional world by learning to read emotional needs
  • Support their child’s ability to successfully manage emotions
  • Enhance the development of their child’s self esteem
  • Honor the innate wisdom and desire for their child to be secure
