Episode Description

Intense children exhibit intense, often problematic, behavior with a frequency and severity that impacts everyone. Exhausted parents field regular phone calls from school administrators, frustrated teachers feel punishment (or leaving the profession) is their only option, and medical professionals assume medication is the only approach that truly works. No one benefits, certainly not the child.

Enter the Nurtured Heart Approach, a parent behavior training program developed from therapist Howard Glasser’s work with the most challenging and intense children. School and treatment centers report that it not only positively transforms “difficult” behaviors, but the Nurtured Heart Approach benefits all children by enabling and teaching adults how to channel their intensity into great qualities of character and leadership.

In this webinar, you will:

  • Understand the dynamics of intense children and how to inspire success and greatness
  • Understand why, despite sincere intention, conventional methods of parenting, education, and treatment often backfire with intense and challenging children
  • Learn a methodology for inspiring success that is more powerful and encompassing than traditional approaches
  • Understand how to uphold a great level of limits and accountability while avoiding the traps that make consequences backfire
