NotesWhat is Nurtured Heart Approach®?
It is a simple framework which nurtures and grows a child’s positive sense of self. All Children who have been introduced to this approach flourish and learn to appreciate what is great about them.
The Nurtured Hearts Approach® enables us to notice our child’s successes no matter how tiny, and in doing so, build a child’s inner wealth, confidence and sense of self.  This encourages positive choice-making and resilience. The Approach invites us to transform and expand what is great about our child and our parenting.
The approach is different to other approaches; it is a simple three step process that asks us to give no energy to our child’s negative behaviour, abundant recognition of the behaviour that we want to develop and encourage and asks us to set clear boundaries and limits.
OutlineTraditional approaches often fall short of promoting the inner strength essential for young people to build successful relationships. Sometimes, the tools we have do not seem to match the intensity of our children or clients, who can be so defensive and appear to resist the support or treatment we offer.
This webinar will encourage participants to change the way we look at challenging behaviours and increase awareness and understanding of relationships.  Through an introduction to the Nurtured Heart Approach®, the webinar will provide powerful tools to improve not only how children and young people views themselves, but also the world around them, so they can embrace themselves and embrace life.
More than just a behaviour management strategy, the Nurtured Heart Approach® is a philosophy for creating healthy relationships with the people in your life. The Nurtured Heart Approach® embraces intensity within children, young people and adults,   and seeks to utilise that intensity to propel them to even greater heights than they ever thought possible.
This webinar is designed for those who seek to learn the basics of the Nurtured Heart Approach® and is suitable for anyone living or working with intense children or young people.
OutcomesAt the completion of the workshop participants will have:
• Have reviewed the factors that can contribute to challenging behaviours in children.
• Have explored why some strategies do not seem to work and at times make the situation worse.
• Have been introduced to the fundamentals of the NHA (the ‘stands’ of the approach)have explored techniques that can be used to energize all children and particularly challenging children and young people and enhance their self-belief and confidence, which we call “inner wealth”
