Programme Description


The Fostering Security programme runs for 10 sessions and each session is two hours long. 


Participants also engage in home activities which involve reading articles and reflecting on aspects of their own or their child’s behaviour.  In an attempt to maintain the effects of the training and continue to provide caregivers with support, training and information after the programme ends a support group, following completion of the Fostering Security programme, is in the process of being established.
