Court Ordered Counseling

Circle of Security Course

Circle of Security is a parent education & psychotherapy intervention developed after decades of research, by Glen Cooper, Kent Hoffman, Robert Marvin, & Bert Powell. The facilitated course is designed to shift problematic or 'at risk' patterns of attachment-caregiving interactions to a more appropriate developmental pathway.

Four Core principals govern the course:

  • that the quality of the child parent attachment plays a significant role in the life trajectory of the child

  • that lasting change results from parents changing their caregiving patterns rather than by learning techniques to manage their child's behaviour

  • that parents’ relationship capacities are best enhanced if they themselves are operating within a secure base relationship

  • that interventions designed to enhance the quality of child-parent attachments will be especially effective if they are focused on the caregiver & based on the strengths & difficulties of each caregiver/child relationship.
