Opportunity for Parents

Opportunity for Parents!

The RMWB counselling team will be offering an 8-session parenting group (Circle of Security) beginning in September. 

Circle of Security Group Information:

Over the course of 8 2-hour sessions, parents will learn about the Circle of Security parenting model. The goal of this model is to help parents better understand their child’s behavior and the interactions that occur between him/her and their child. An important goal of the model is to help parents feel successful in parenting, even though they will inevitably make mistakes along the way. An important focus of the group facilitators’ is to create safety for all parents to promote optimal learning. There will be 8-10 parents in the group. Video clips of parents and children are used throughout the course to help parents understand the concepts being taught. Although the children in many of the clips are toddlers, the Circle of Security approach applies to all parent-child relationships. Parents will be given a series of handouts throughout and a certificate once they have completed all 8 sessions. Sessions are facilitated by a Registered Psychologist, and held in Timberlea.

Dates:

Saturday Mornings from 9 - 11:30 am starting September 17th - November 5th 

Wednesday Evenings from 6 - 8:30 pm starting September 14th - November 2nd
