The Nurtured Heart Approach® will identify how best efforts may actually fuel the fire of challenging behavior and provide strategies for creating richer social emotional connections with children, with a special focus on implementing NHA within different contexts, to include culture and trauma experiences. This workshop is an excellent resource for any adult working with children and families in any setting in order to learn the core principals of the Nurtured Heart Approach. This workshop provides a full presentation of the core methodologies, allow opportunities to practice the skills and explore the concepts within small group activities throughout the training. Upon completion of the 6 hour, training you will be able to present, reteach, and role model the approach with families and children. Most treatment approaches, designed for the average child, stretch beyond their capacity when applied to challenging children. Traditional behavior management approaches can easily backfire with highly intense, challenging children, despite the best of intentions. Learn how hundreds of schools, families, teachers, healthcare professionals, social workers, and juvenile justice professionals who are seeking successful, early intervention techniques with children are successfully implementing NHA.
This workshop will be co-facilitated with a Hispanic bilingual trainer/presenter who is fluent in Spanish and each core concept of NHA will be explored within the context of how to effectively implement, communicate and translate the concepts, terminology and strategies with Hispanic children and families.
