Presented by Joe Coyne – Circle of Security Trainer

This ten-day training is designed for clinicians who are interested in assessment and treatment planning based upon the Circle of Security approach. Learning will be focused on a systematic approach for evaluating parental states of mind, identifying precise strengths and linchpin diflculties in parent/child interactions, and creating specific treatment plans tailored to the unique themes of each parent/child dyad.
This training ouers tools for competency in evaluation and treatment planning for the COS protocol. It does not, in itself, imply certification in the full COS protocol. Certification for Level 1 of COS will be available to those passing a post-training examination for an additional fee. Attendance at this training does not enable practitioners to use the COS Parenting DVD. Use of the COS- P protocol requires an additional 4 day course of training.

The Circle of Security Intervention: Enhancing Attachment in Early Parent-Child Relationships by Bert Powell, Glen Cooper, Kent Houman, and Robert S. Marvin, is required reading prior to the course.

In my view, the Circle of Security (COS) is an approach that has changed the game Uis intervention translates attach-
ment research more meaningfully and more directly than anything we have seen before.
