The Nurtured Heart Approach has been transforming the lives of children and those who care for and educate them since 1992. Developed by Howard Glasser – a psychotherapist in Tucson, Arizona – it was originally used to treat the most difficult, intense and challenging children who didn’t respond to any conventional treatments, and whose behaviour consistently worsened despite fervent application of diverse therapies by parents and therapists alike.
Over time it became apparent that the Approach was of benefit to all children due to its ability to empower them to believe in themselves and to consistently make wise choices.
The Nurtured Heart Approach is brilliant in its simplicity: it is easy to master and use and an effective Approach for every child. It beautifully enhances relationship, attention, behavior and communication skills and builds a sound framework for healthy social and emotional development.
Using this approach has directly resulted in the complete transformation of countless homes and classrooms across the globe. Parents and primary care givers are in awe of the positive changes that have occurred in their families as a direct result of using the Approach. Elementary and middle schools, high schools, preschools and childcare centres are unfailingly delighted with the results of using The Nurtured Heart Approach.
Schools using the Approach unanimously report dramatic – sometimes miraculous – reductions in behaviour problems, suspensions, diagnoses, special education and resource room interventions, the need for support staff, use of medications and teacher attrition, as well as dramatic increases in school test scores. Teachers report that teaching time has been profoundly increased in direct relation to the reduction in time previously spent on classroom management. They say that classroom productivity has blossomed and continues to do so.
For discipline to be effective, primary care givers and teachers need to learn how to save all of their energy for rewarding and encouraging wise choices. Conventional methods of discipline try to teach children the rules when they are being broken. In doing so they inadvertently reward the very behaviour they want to change!
The key to successful parenting or teaching is to motivate children to harness their abundant energy and channel it productively.
All we need is the right set of tools for the job.
