Offered in schools either funded by schools, PTAs or self funded by parents. They require 4-8 parents to be able to attend weekly for 8 weeks.
Circle of Security Parenting© is an 8-week parenting course that teaches parents how to build stronger, more secure relationships with their children. Evidence shows that children’s confidence and resilience is most effectively promoted through secure relationships rather than relying on behaviour management strategies alone.
Informed by Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, this 8 week course helps parents understand what anxiety is and gives practical tools so they can help their child recognise and challenge unhelpful thinking, learn skills to manage emotions and take brave, small steps to face their fears. The groups involves group meetings, plus individual telephone sessions. There is a clear evidence base for this approach to treat childhood anxiety as parents learn practical tools but also gain support from other parents.
