Circle of Security Parenting™
Audience: Parents/Caregivers

At times, all parents feel lost or without a clue about what our child might need from us. Imagine what it might feel like if you were able to make sense of what your child was really asking from you. The Circle of Security Parenting™ program is based on decades of research about how secure parent-child relationships can be supported and strengthened.

Learning objectives of the training:

  • Understand your child’s emotional world by learning to read their emotional needs.
  • Support your child’s ability to successfully manage emotions.
  • Enhance the development of your child's self-esteem.
  • Honour your innate wisdom and desire for your child to be secure.

Did you miss the introductory sessions in the fall? Plan to attend the catch-up session on January 6. Once you've taken the introductory sessions, join us for topics 3-7:

  • Being With on the Circle
  • The Path to Security
  • Exploring Our Struggles
  • Rupture and Repair in Relationships

This will be a series of sessions that build on one another—January 12, February 2, February 23 and March 16. Plan to attend the full series.

Virtual Gathering of First Nations, Métis and Inuit Parents and Families

Time: 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Location: Microsoft Teams

The First Nations, Métis and Inuit education team is once again offering a series of virtual gatherings for EIPS families of First Nations, Métis or Inuit children. We look forward to continuing the conversation from last school year and welcoming new families to our virtual circle. These gatherings are an opportunity for First Nations, Métis and Inuit parents and guardians to come together to make connections, create a supportive environment for dialogue, share hopes and ideas for their children within the EIPS family and learn what’s happening around the Division. We’re grateful to Elder Wilson Bearhead for attending our virtual gatherings last school year and agreeing to open each of our gatherings again this year. It’s truly an honour and a privilege to be guided by Elder Wilson, and we hold our relationship with him close to our hearts.

 

For more information or if you're interested in participating, reach out to the First Nations, Métis and Inuit education lead teacher at your child's school.
