TRANSFORMING THE INTENSE CHILD: AWAKENING GREATNESS
A child’s intensity is a gift that can be nurtured and awakened to greatness. Unfortunately, many parents, teachers and school counseling staff find themselves struggling with increasingly intense children.
Faced with problematic behaviors from an intense child, most adults react by cranking up the level of traditional and conventional methods, not realizing these methods are not a good fit and are virtually guaranteed to make the situation even worse.
The Nurtured Heart Approach® is different because it is born of my work with the most challenging and intense children. The Nurtured Heart Approach enables adults to quickly experience great impact in helping children channel their intensity into positivity.
So many School Social Workers have become the change agents in education by discovering this approach that allows them to inspire everyone to a new way of interacting with children. Join us for this workshop and learn how to light up the runways for children of all levels of intensity. Let's help them discover that they are no longer the bad kid, or the good kid, but rather the great kid with great things to contribute.
Howard Glasser, creator of the Nurtured Heart Approach, is a psychotherapist, author, and Chairman of the Board of the Children’s Success Foundation. He has authored multiple books about the approach, including Transforming the Difficult Child, which remains a top seller in the ADHD category more than a decade after its initial publication. Other titles include Notching Up the Nurtured Heart Approach: the New Inner Wealth Initiative (a leading book on school interventions) and All Children Flourishing (about using the NHA with all children, difficult or not. His most recent book, Igniting Greatness, is about applying the Approach to one’s self as a way of transforming one’s life and relationships. When not writing and giving webinars from home, Howard spends much of his time on the road, traveling to cities worldwide to teach the Approach to parents, educators, therapists, and others who wish to make a dramatic difference in the lives of challenging children.
