Breakfast Webinar with Circle of Security International - SOLD OUT

Circle of Security Live Breakfast Webinar

The event is now sold out but stay tuned - we hope to be able to release the recording following the event. More information to follow.

Given the cancellation of most in-person training events due to COVID-19 this year, it's been a while since we've had the opportunity to meet face to face with our wonderful colleagues at Circle of Security International (COSI).

We wanted to help bridge the gap by hosting a Live Breakfast Webinar with COSI Research Liaison and Medical Director - Neil Boris.

Neil will be discussing how we can use Circle of Security concepts with our parents and children during times of uncertainty, plus so much more:

  • Circle of Security models of intervention
  • Applying the Circle to children in action - seeing behaviour as the communication of a need on the Circle and changing the behaviour by meeting the need.
  • Using the Circle as a roadmap to understand patterns of attachment.
  • Gain insight on how to promote secure attachment using the COSI concept

There will also be time for Q&A, so have your questions ready.

If you are unable to make the allocated time, don't worry. A recording of the session will be made available once the session has concluded. Please note: You will still need to register for the webinar to be able to access the recording. 

Date: Friday 18th September
Time: 8:00 - 8.45am AEST
Cost $29


About the Presenter.

Neil Boris: Research Liaison and Medical Director/COSI Trainer.

Neil is a graduate of Grinnell College and the Tufts University School of Medicine. After completing his residency training at Brown University in pediatrics, adult and child psychiatry, Neil embarked on a research career focusing on the social and emotional development of high-risk children—especially those under five years of age.

His research has ranged from studying early intervention programs serving high-risk families in the U.S. to capturing the impact of community-based programs for orphans in Rwanda and Malawi. He has also always been a clinician and teacher, working in a variety of clinical settings from multi-disciplinary programs focused on young maltreated children to hospital-based practice with children with life-threatening illnesses or community-based programs serving substance-abusing parents and their young children.

Neil has been a tenured Full Professor at Tulane University (in both public health and medicine) where his passion for teaching and training was awarded a Teaching Scholar Award. He's held several leadership positions, including being an associate editor of the Infant Mental Health Journal, serving on the editorial board of the Journal of the American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry to being on the board of directors of the World Association of Infant Mental Health. Neil lives in a lakeside home in Orlando, Florida with his wife, Adena, their three children— Jackie, Cooper and Andy—and his mother, Marylynn. He views life as a grand adventure and sees Circle of Security as a positive force in the world.

He practices the Circle at home under the guidance of his wife, Adena; the joy he gets from being a father of 3 amazing kids can't be put into words. When he can, he enjoys riding his bike, cooking, reading and pondering spiritual dimensions.
