Parenting approaches have changed significantly with the emergence of attachment theory and neuroscience based understandings. How do we use this advanced knowledge in practical everyday parenting? This workshop takes you on a journey of discovery towards applying attachment principles in the daily parenting of children and invites you to consider how you use this knowledge in your family support work. You’ll have an opportunity to understand Circle of Security™ concepts and how to talk about these with families you support. Parenting approaches that strive to control behaviour do not respond to children’s underlying needs and feelings. Relationship based approaches such as Circle of Security™ allow parents to see behaviour as a form of communication. This workshop will give you an overview of these approaches so that you in turn can support the parents you work with.
Who should attend? Family support workers, foster care support workers, family intervention workers, child safety staff, child care workers, anyone who provides skills-development and support to the families or carers of young children.
