Nurtured Heart Approach® Training - Lessons 1 & 2 (Greatness Project)

We are excited to be able to offer a training with Viviana Barajas, NHA Advanced Trainer and Consultant, who will share her "Greatness Project" curriculum to certified trainers.

Who is this training for? Any certified NHA trainer who is interested in teaching this approach to youth in a group setting.

What age group is this curriculum for? It was developed for grades 9-12, however can be adapted for younger students, grades 4 and up.

What will I receive? "Plug and play" interactive lesson plans that can be used to teach youth the foundational principles of NHA and techniques that support youth using the approach for themselves. These lessons also promote the Social Emotional Learning (SEL) skills of self-awareness, self-management, social awareness, relationship skills, and responsible decision-making.

How many sessions do I have to attend? She will teach the 5 lessons in 3 sessions. If you can't attend a session, you won't get the curriculum materials for that lesson but please try to attend all three sessions.

Will other staff be able to use these lessons with youth? The lessons can be used to teach NHA foundational principles to adults, giving staff a different route to learning through short professional development opportunities. After you facilitate the 1-hour sessions to staff they can then use the material with other people with your guidance.

What are the dates of the training sessions?

  • August 15th - 9:30-11:45 (Lessons 1&2)
  • August 17th - 9:30-11:45 (Lessons 3&4)
