You attended a Nurtured Heart® training event, now what? You walked away feeling inspired and fueled with passion and realize quickly it is just not enough. You aren’t even sure where to begin and know you are in dire need for a framework to create success with the theory from the NHA. You need a strategic step by step implementation plan that will make the theory land for leadership, administration, and front-line workers. Research shows 60-80% of change initiatives FAIL when you FAIL to PREPARE for a Change initiative. Which do you choose? Failure or Success? Create the change that you desire and that children and families DESERVE—as a basic human right.

Day 2: Develop Effective Direct Care Strategies for Working with Children and Teens

Training Description: Nurtured Heart Approach® is a powerful model to build nurturing and positive relationships within families, at schools and organizations. When used in tandem with other psychological and crisis prevention evidence-based strategies, success toward rule compliance, and behavior changes is accelerated. Being creative and innovative with NHA takes
practice, perseverance, training and clinical supervision/coaching to build confidence and success especially with highly intense children, youth and families dealing with developmental disabilities, anxiety, trauma, attachment, at-risk behaviors, aggression and violence and family systems dysfunctionality. Participants will also learn the importance of promoting their own self- care as well as imparting this toward the parents and caregivers to avoid compassion fatigue, vicarious traumatization and overall burnout.

Learning Objectives

  • Discover ways to implement NHA specifically with developmental challenges
  • Examine the NHA concept of “Reset” integrated with Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy
  • Discriminate between behavioral challenges and the need for love and relationship
  • Give examples of barriers within family systems and how it impedes the healing process
  • Label ways on how to implement NHA practices, including boundaries and rules, that can reduce the level of opportunity for violence and aggression
  • Recognize warning signs for at risk youth and list ways to increase safety measures
  • Explain and apply self-care strategies for daily practice at work and in practice with parents/caregivers
