Presenting both a theoretical foundation and proven strategies for helping caregivers become more attuned and responsive to
their young children's emotional needs (ages 0-5), this is the first comprehensive presentation of the Circle of Security
(COS) intervention. The book lucidly explains the conceptual underpinnings of COS and demonstrates the innovative attachment-based
assessment and intervention strategies in rich clinical detail, including three chapter-length case examples. Reproducible
forms and handouts can be downloaded and printed in a convenient 8 1/2" x 11" size. COS is an effective research-based program
that has been implemented throughout the world with children and parents experiencing attachment difficulties.
authors are corecipients of the 2013 Bowlby-Ainsworth Award, presented by the New York Attachment Consortium, for developing
and implementing COS.
