The Nurtured Heart Approach

NHA_new-logo_RGB (1)

We adopted The Nurtured Heart Approach® throughout our entire organization from workplace policy and procedures to service provision. We are New Jersey’s original in-home provider formally using the approach–a journey that began to unfold in 2008.

We believe that speaking the language of the approach maintains balance and harmony in the work we do and in the way we relate to one another whether as employers and employees or as professionals working with individuals or organizations.

Our staff is trained and ready to help you transform whether for an individual, children and families or for an entire organization we can assist.

What Is the Nurtured Heart Approach®?

The Nurtured Heart Approach® is a relationship-focused methodology founded strategically in “The 3 Stands” for helping children (and adults) build their Inner Wealth® and use their intensity in successful ways. It has become a powerful way of awakening the inerrant greatness in all children while facilitating parenting and classroom success. The essence of the Approach is a set of core methodologies originally developed for working with the most difficult children.  It has a proven impact on every child, including those who are challenged behaviorally, socially and academically. The Nurtured Heart Approach® has also been shown to create transformative changes in children diagnosed with ADHD, Oppositional Defiant Disorder, Reactive Attachment Disorder and other behavioral, emotional and anxiety related symptoms – almost always without the need for long-term mental health treatment. Even children experiencing social cognitive challenges, like Autism and Aspergers greatly benefit from the Approach, reducing the need for traditional mental health and medical interventions in some instances.

We can train you individually or your organization on site or on line and we custom tailor the training to the people you serve.
