Secure Beginnings is a 14 to 20 week individualised programme designed to support a parent to recognise the strengths and struggles in their attachment relationship with their infants and pre-school aged children.
After completing a comprehensive assessment, parents will be supported by a specialist in their home, using video feedback, to strengthen their ability to observe and reflect on their care-giving capacity. The programme offers parents an easy formula which they can use as a ‘map’ to recognise and respond to their child’s emotional needs.
Secure Beginnings is a joint service between Dayspring Trust and Waitemata DHB- Mātua Tūhonongā (Infant Mental Health).
