    A Snapshot of the Nurtured Heart Approach Alternate Fridays in English

    A Snapshot of the Nurtured Heart Approach The Nurtured Heart Approach® (NHA) is more than just a parenting or educator behavior management strategy. It is a philosophy for creating healthy relationships with the people in your life. Initially created by Howard Glasser in 1992, NHA is being successfully implemented through families, classrooms, foster care, health care professionals, social workers, and criminal justice organizations that are seeking successful, early intervention techniques. The Nurtured Heart Approach consists of a set of strategies that assists children in further developing their self-regulation and has been found effective with children of all ages. It focuses on transforming the way children perceive themselves, their caregivers, and the world around them. Children learn to understand that they will receive endless amounts of praise, energy, recognition, and reward through the positive behavior they display and this supports children to build a positive portfolio of themselves, which we call "Inner Wealth™." 6/ 3/2022 - 7:00 AM - 8:00 PM 7/1/2022 - 10:00 am to 11:00 AM 8/5/ 2022 - 7:00 PM - 8:00 PM 9/2/2022 - 10: 00 AM -11:00 AM 10/ 7/2022 - 7:00 PM - 8:00 PM 11/4/2022 - 10:00 AM - 11:00 AM 12/2/2022 - 7:00pm - 8:00 pm Join Zoom Meeting https://us06web.zoom.us/j/89246227086?pwd=WkN1Vys5dDVNQVJCM2N3eHNDdU9nUT09
