The Nurtured Heart Approach ®

Solutions 2 Wellbeing has introduced the Nurtured Heart Approach® to hundreds of parents and educators in the greater Jackson area. The Nurtured Heart Approach® created by Psychologist, Howard Glasser is a set of strategies that build rich relationships that inspire appropriate behavior from all children. With the Nurtured Heart Approach® all children begin to flourish regardless of their intensity level. The efficient result producing approach reframes traditional punitive methods of parenting and discipline or classroom management, to one that acknowledges the greatness in all children.

Within the simple framework of the approach children are energized when things are going right, while setting clear and consistent limits. When the approach is implemented amazing things begin to happen at both home and school. With the Nurtured Heart Approach® the home becomes more peaceful and the classroom climate more positive as children begin to use their intensity in creative rather than destructive ways.  With the Nurtured Heart Approach® a child builds a sense of inner wealth which is the basis for better decision-making and success.

The Nurtured Heart Approach® was originally designed for working with the most difficult of children having diagnosis such as ADHD, Autism, Asperger’s Syndrome, Oppositional Defiant Disorder and Reactive Attachment Disorder, almost always without the need of medications or long term treatment. However, it quickly became very evident that the Nurtured Heart Approach® was a powerful method of bringing inner wealth to all children with a proven transformative impact.

There is a strong realization that traditional parenting methods have often fallen short for dealing with intense children and in fact have often made matters worse.   When combined with the fact that many parents are reluctant to medicate young children, parents are at a loss as to how help their children.  In addition, the American Academy of Pediatrics guidelines for treating young ADHD children have also changed. The American Academy of Pediatrics is now encouraging earlier diagnosis and treatment for preschool children to increase their chances of succeeding at home and in school.   According to the new guidelines for preschool children the first line of treatment should be behavioral interventions such as parent trainings in behavioral techniques.

With the Nurtured Heart Approach® parents and teacher alike are learning how to help children achieve new levels of greatness in an enduring way. The Nurtured Heart Approach® helps all children to flourish and has helped thousands of families, educators and child advocates channel a child’s intensity in positively powerful ways.
