Circle of Security
This course is for foster/adoptive and step-parents. Adult adoptees are also included in this group.
There is more focus on attachment as these are parents who have come into a child's life later, frequently after abuse and neglect.
NOTE: If you have relative or kinship foster parents, there are grant funds to cover the COS training for these parents!
Cost is $200 for one, $300 for a couple, even if they attend different sessions.
Participants must attend all eight sessions in order. If they miss a session, they need to be told that they must schedule a make-up prior to the next class and that they will be responsible for paying $75 for the missed session. As a result they generally don't miss class. Classes last 1 1/2 hours. If you will be doing an LOA, the code is 8125 Parent Education, and it is for 1 event, which covers all 8 classes.
