February 23, 2021 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

On February 23rd 7:30 p.m., join the New Haven County chapter of Holistic Moms Network virtually on Zoom as we focus on the Circle of Security, a visual map of attachment parenting, with Charlie Slaughter, MPH. From 7:30-8 p.m., we will have an informal time for HMN members and non-members to catch up with each other. The presentation will begin at 8 p.m.
What if we were able to make sense of what our child was really asking from us? The Circle of Security® Parenting™ (COSP) program delves into how secure parent-child relationships can be supported and strengthened. Using the COSP™ model, trained facilitators work with parents and caregivers to help them better understand their child’s emotional needs, support the child’s ability to successfully manage emotions, enhances the development of the child’s self-esteem and more, says Circle of Security International.
