The foundation of the Safe, Secure and Loved Program is built on important scientific research and theories (e.g., attachment, interpersonal neurobiology and polyvagal) and promotes a vision for community healing community. In addition to offering parenting classes facilitated by community leaders, this program emphasizes the importance of a follow-up component to ensure internalization of the habits of resilience.
The goal of this presentation is for participants to be more aware of the importance of supporting parents of children ages 0-3 to provide an environment that is conducive to form a secure attachment, which is the foundational step in a person’s future mental, emotional, physical and spiritual well-being. This presentation provides an overview of the Safe, Secure and Loved: Resilient Families (SSL:RF) program offered through Sacred Heart Community Services and Resilient Families Gilroy. This program is mindfulness based, trauma-informed, and community led, and it aims at increasing resilience in parents of young children.
