This 2-part workshop will help teachers, parents, counselors and others in the lives of young people learn about The Nurtured Heart Approach®. This relational method awakens greatness and inspires successful behavior in children and is a powerful way of bringing inner wealth to all children while facilitating parenting, mentoring, and classroom success.

The essence of The Nurtured Heart Approach® is a set of core methodologies that has a proven impact on every child, including those who are challenged behaviorally, socially and academically.

The Nurtured Heart Approach® has also been shown to create transformative changes in children diagnosed with ADHD, Oppositional Defiant Disorder, Reactive Attachment Disorder, and other behavioral, emotional, and anxiety related symptoms.

Participants will:

  • Gain an understanding of why conventional methods of parenting, therapy and teaching may often fail with intense children, despite the best intentions
  • Learn how to help children exhibiting difficult behaviors, such as symptoms of ADHD or ODD, to use his/her intensity in successful ways
  • Learn methods to building a child’s “Inner Wealth”, allowing a shift from negative to positive choices, using core methodologies of the Nurtured Heart Approach
