“You will be offered a positive social approach to encourage your success by teachers, school administrators, child care providers, and parents who will now be trained in the Nurtured Heart Approach.”

Children need to feel stronger on the inside to be successful and productive in today’s world. Traditional approaches often fall short of promoting the higher level of inner strength. We feel it is time and essential for children to successfully handle the growing levels of stress and pressure they frequently face. When children are led to feeling successful and great on the inside they begin to think from a focal point of success and begin to act-out GREATNESS.

The Inner Wealth Initiative, created by Tom Grove and Howard Glasser brings forth a detailed view of how the Nurtured Heart Approach has turned the corner in bringing educators not only a method that works but that brings forth the greatness in every child, even the most challenging children in the classroom.

Classroom management: Teachers are trained in methods of classroom management which can often backfire with challenging children. The group of children who are challenging continues to grow. They need more “inner wealth” than all other children in order to make their lives work and help them to feel successful.

Quick, nurturing, powerful: The Nurtured Heart Approach quickly brings children to a much deeper and more residing sense of being powerful in positive ways. The Nurtured Heart Approach provides children with wonderful first-hand experiences of being respectful, responsible, thoughtful, considerate and capable. Kids who feel wealthy on the inside manifest this in compassionate ways in every aspect of their lives.

You will learn: Skillful teachers and administrators always hold children accountable for problem behaviors but they always reserve their animated and energized responses for positive behaviors … and they have an uncanny ability to strategically see and create positive behaviors. With that in place, resetting problem behaviors can be amazingly effective and easy.

No more rewards of inappropriate energy: Lectures, reprimands and raised voices are not appropriate consequences as most adults believe, but rather are rewards of energy and relationship that deepen a challenging child’s impression that he or she gets greater “connection” through adversity.

Simple to turn around what may appear to be ADHD: What appears to be ADHD most often is simply a habitual response by the child to his environment. Medications must be reserved as a last resort only as the side effects can be devastating. Learn more!

Fortunately, this situation is simple to turn around. There is nothing that cannot be accomplished with an approach that works. Teachers and parents desperately need the kinds of strategies that can quickly have an enormous impact. Without interventions like The Nurtured Heart Approach they can easily be swept into the throes of a bad year… and everyone suffers. Most teachers and school faculties are underexposed to techniques that really work for the difficult child.

Success stories: Applications of The Nurtured Heart Approach(R) have been enormously successful. Since 1994, tens of thousands of teachers around the world have received this training and have had consistent experiences of not only shifting the intense child into using their great energies in constructive, creative and successful ways, but of seeing the average child flourish well beyond normal expectations.

Ways to offer the training: Advanced Community Education suggests that the school register two or more teachers in order to return to your school to then implement the approach. As the approach is used in the classroom, teachers in the same building will notice a positive change and they, too, will want the training. Schoolwide training is the most effective way to truly impact behaviors and reaping the benefits of the approach.

Train and implement the Nurtured Heart Approach by inviting a certified trainer to your school to train school staff. Offer a training each year to continue the approach and to teach the approach to new staff.

This quick and easy approach works well with PBIS and it actually makes PBIS more effective. The Nurtured Heart Approach(R) works well in a school where the program of PBIS has not implemented. The Nurtured Heart Approach(R) works well with individual students, in the classrooms, in the gym, and outdoor at recess.

Energize the student, the student will feel great, and the student will perform!
