Utilizing the Nurtured Heart Approach in helping children with challenging behaviors

The Nurtured Heart Approach® is a set of core methodologies originally developed for working with the most difficult child or teen. It has a proven, transformative impact on every child, including those with behavioral diagnoses such as ADHD, autism, Asperger’s syndrome, oppositional defiant disorder, and reactive attachment disorder – almost always without the need for medications or long-term treatment. Parents will discover how easy it is to not only improve their situation with a challenging or difficult child, but to transform the child through the awareness that their intensity is actually the source of their greatness.

In this enhanced 2.0 version of the training, there will be the trauma-informed piece in the morning with new enhanced techniques and ideas for the core methodologies, with the added benefit of more practice and group work, in the afternoon.

At this time, we are asking all in-person LSI training attendees to practice social distancing and wear a mask during the session. Prior to the in-person training, please review and sign this COVID-19 safety guidelines acknowledgement form and bring it with you to the training.

This training has been approved for 6 hours of foster parent training credit.
