What is the Nurtured Heart Approach®?
The Nurtured Heart Approach® is a set of core methodologies originally developed for working with the most difficult children. It has become a powerful way of bringing inner wealth to all children while facilitating parenting and classroom success. It has a proven, transformative impact on every child, including those with behavioral diagnosis such as ADHD, Autism, Asperger’s Syndrome, Oppositional Defiant Disorder, and Reactive Attachment Disorder – almost always without the need for medications or long-term treatment.
The approach is simple and accessible. Using resources like our books, online courses, and certification training, we hope to show you how utterly easy it is to not only improve your situation with a challenging or difficult child, but to transform the child through the awareness that their intensity is actually the source of their greatness.

”We had been firm, consistent parents, just like ours had been. And we turned out okay (or so we thought:)). Well, surprise, different kids need different approaches. We’ve read a lot of books recommended by people. This seems to combine the best of all of them, and once we committed to the program, it was amazing to see the transformation in our child and in ourselves as parents. Our daughter finally seems able to discuss her behavior without exploding and without feeling like she is a bad person. We didn’t realize how we were feeding her behavior with traditional methods of discipline, and we had an out-of-control and, more importantly, very unhappy child and household. The more we cranked down on the our prior discipline, the more out of control she became, and the more helpless we felt. I’m amazed at this method and feel like we can use this for years.”
“I’ve applied the Nurtured Heart Approach® to my classes for three years and the children are greatly improved in every way imaginable. The only way you would recognize the challenging kid.
