Nurtured Heart Approach

Parents. Educators. Therapists. Social Workers. Foster Care Parents. Child Advocates.

Now in its 20th year, the Nurtured Heart Approach®, created by Howard Glasser, 
Psychologist and Executive Director of the Children’s Success Foundation, has achieved international acclaim as an essential set of strategies for transforming the most intense children (and all children) by channeling their energies in inspiring ways – without the use of medication.

The approach began as a method for treating children labeled as challenging, difficult, or intense – especially those with diagnoses such as ADHD, Oppositional Defiant Disorder (ODD), Autism, PTSD, Reactive Attachment Disorder (RAD), Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder and more. The approach is now used successfully in schools, foster-care systems, and communities worldwide to help all children flourish.

The approach is simple: “Three Stands,” practiced with love, form the core methodology. With resources such as the groundbreaking bestseller, Transforming the Difficult Child: The Nurtured Heart Approach®, online courses, and certification trainings, we hope to show you how you can take steps toward shifting negative behavior and inspiring thriving relationships, not only with the children you care for, but with all the people in your life.
