The Circle of Security Patenting Class is typically an 8-week class offered to parents in an effort to strengthen their relationship with their child. This CLE, “The Impacts of Trauma on Children and Adolescents: How to Support Them” combines all 8 chapters covered throughout the weeks into a 3-hour crash course to give those who serve as a Guardian ad Litem a better understanding of what children in the juvenile system have experienced as well as what the parents of those juveniles are being taught. GALs will receive information about: attachment theory, what insecure and secure attachment looks like, how parents repeat cyclical patterns of relational trauma, the benefits of secure attachment and the harm of insecure attachment, how to meet children’s emotional needs, co-regulation, and how children develop the ability to self-regulate.
