The Nurtured Heart Approach® builds relationship and connection teaching parents, professionals and educators to use with children resulting in positive outcomes.  Since its inception, it has evolved to building relationships in other domains.  Family Systems theory teaches the importance of viewing and treating the family as a whole and not in isolation from one another.  We are interdependent and interconnected.  This semester course demonstrates how to strengthen and nurture all the connections within the family starting from: exploring caregivers’ individual needs and where they are in the change process; their needs as a couple; the family unit; to equipping siblings with an enriched way of dealing with their relationships among one another.

This semester course includes:

  • Review of family systems theory and application 
  • The cycle of change and the crucial need to help caregivers understand where they are in this process
  • A weave of the Nurtured Heart Approach® in a step-by-step methodology within the family system
  • Practical interventions and resources

Learning Outcomes

  • Explain the cycle of change and why it is key to understanding caregivers’ process as it relates to moving to the next level of success in treatment

"The Nurtured Heart Approach® continues to expand across disciplines and its utility is evolving in amazing ways.  Having worked on the inaugural and second Global Summit, I had the privilege to read hundreds of proposals demonstrating the diversity and power of the approach.  Weaving the approach into other interventions is like adding Miracle Grow in the garden of humanity.  This course empowers you to create deeper social and emotional relationships within family systems." ~sherry blair
