Circle of Security Parenting (COSP) – Educator (5 sessions)
COSP – Educator is an internationally recognised program and is delivered by registered facilitators. The program is designed to increase and build awareness of the importance of attachment for children with their educators. When put into the context of relationships with educators, COSP™ helps build an understanding of how important relationships in the lives of children, in addition to parents, contribute to a child’s overall wellbeing and future successes. Through the eight-chapter reflection program, educators use the Circle as a roadmap to understand children’s patterns of attachment. Learning to apply the Circle to children in their care will help educators shift the focus away from trying to change undesirable behaviours with rewards and punishment to seeing the behaviour as communication of a need on the Circle and changing the behaviour by meeting the need. The program assists educators to be a more confident presence for children and in turn helps to develop children’s agency, cooperation and positive sense of self.
