I am excited to announce that this coming Friday I will be presenting a talk to a group of expat parents in Berlin. It is my first official presentation to a group of parents since moving here and I am really looking forward to sharing my views on the very difficult topic of tantrums.
My talk is entirely inspired by the Circle of Security Intervention, created by Glen Cooper, Kent Hoffman, and Bert Powell, of which I am a trained facilitator since 2013.
“The Circle of Security is a relationship based early intervention program designed to enhance attachment security between parents and children. Decades of university-based research have confirmed that secure children exhibit increased empathy, greater self-esteem, better relationships with parents and peers, enhanced school readiness, and an increased capacity to handle emotions more effectively when compared with children who are not secure.” – http://circleofsecurity.net/
I will introduce the Circle of Security with specific focus on how it can aid understanding of toddlers’ behaviours including those terrifying tantrums. A discussion around Time Out versus Time In as a way of coping with problem behaviour will also be discussed.
The Circle of Security intervention is taught via a series of workshops that can be delivered to individuals, couples or groups. These workshops are aimed at parents of children aged 0-5 years.
