Circle of Security Parenting for Dads

March 28th – May 16th (Mondays) 6:00pm-8:00pm

This is a 8 class course. Minimum attendance at 7 classes is required for certificate of completion.

The Circle of Security is a relationship based early intervention program designed to enhance attachment security between parents and children in a father-specific environment. 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.

This class will be presented at the Triwood Centre 4004 19th St. NW Calgary.

*If more than one caregiver will be taking the class, please register for each participant*
