At the completion of this workshop, participants will have: have reviewed the factors that can contribute to challenging behaviours in children have explored why some strategies do not seem to work and at times make the situation worse have been introduced to the fundamentals of the NHA (the ‘stands’ of the Approach) have explored techniques that can be used to energise all children and particularly challenging children and young people and enhance their self-belief and confidence, which we call “inner wealth” have reviewed the importance of clear boundaries and learnt how to implement consequences following Nurtured Heart principles have been introduced to strategies on how to engage with even the most “treatment resistant children/clients”.

Traditional approaches often fall short of promoting the inner strength essential for young people to build successful relationships. Sometimes, the tools we have do not seem to match the intensity of our children or clients, who can be so defensive and appear to resist the support or treatment we offer.

This workshop will encourage participants to change the way we look at challenging behaviours and increase awareness and understanding of relationships.  Through an introduction to the Nurtured Heart Approach®, the workshop will provide powerful tools to improve not only how children and young people views themselves, but also the world around them, so they can embrace themselves and embrace life.

More than just a behaviour management strategy, the Nurtured Heart Approach® is a philosophy for creating healthy relationships with the people in your life. The Nurtured Heart approach embraces intensity within children, young people and adults and seeks to utilise that intensity to propel them to even greater heights than they ever thought possible.

This workshop is designed for those who only have 1 day available and seek to learn the basics of the Nurtured Heart Approach and is suitable for anyone living or working with intense children or young people.
