What every parent needs to know about Bonding and Attachment

We as Parents all want to Bond with our children, however sometimes Bonding becomes confused.  The Attachment Process has a cycle and knowing this makes it easier to work out how we can create better connections.

Through the Circle of Security Parent Education Program, you will learn about secure attachment, enabling greater insight into the connection we have with our infants, children and relationships in general.

What are its secrets and how does Bonding happen?

The Attachment cycle was first noticed and studied by Mary Ainsworth and John Bowlby back in the 1930’s.  Their discoveries were expanded by a group of Psychologists, © Cooper, Hoffman & Powell – 2009, who created this Parent Education Program, – Circle of Security Parenting ©.

Karen trained with Bert Powell in 2013 and became a Registered Circle of Security Parent Educator.  She delivers this valuable information in her Workshops.

Why is it so important?

Studies have shown, Secure Attachment with our parents, enables better outcomes across our lifetime.  Once equipped with vital information contained in this program, – parents have the tools to improve the security of their own attachments, but more importantly that of their children’s.

Children with more secure attachment styles are thought to have better educational outcomes, more ability to emotionally regulate and more able to recover from traumatic life incidents.

What effect does it have on the rest of our lives?

We develop our style of attaching from the interactions we have with our main caregiver from infancy through our developing years.  This style becomes our point of reference and cycle of behaviour in all of our relationships across our life span.  Attachment is a deep and enduring emotional bond that connects one person to another across time and space (Ainsworth, 1973; Bowlby, 1969).  Looking at our own attachment style and understanding it can be a wonderful insight into ourselves and our needs.
