The Nurtured Heart Approach®

The Nurtured Heart Approach®, a relationship-focused strategy originally developed for working with children challenged behaviorally, socially and academically.

Shown to create a change in all children, The Nurtured Heart Approach® can be beneficial to families with children diagnosed with ADHD, Oppositional Defiant Disorder, Reactive Attachment Disorder and other behavioral, emotional and anxiety related symptoms.

Leave with three strategies, The 3 Stands™

Stand One: Absolutely No!
I refuse to give my time, energy and relationship to negative behavior. I will not accidentally foster failure nor will I reward problems by responding to them in animated ways. I will save my time and energy searching for success.

Stand Two: Absolutely Yes!
I will relentlessly and strategically pull the child into new patterns of success. I will constantly recognize the success and achievement that children are displaying no matter how small and present them with clear, undeniable evidence of their value and how great they are.

Stand Three: Absolute Clarity!
I will have clear and consistent consequences for children when a rule has been broken. “Here are the rules, and here’s what happens when you break a rule”
