Howard Glasser creator of the Nurtured Heart Approach Visits Biggs Unified
Howard Glasser is the Chairman of the Board of the Children’s Success Foundation and creator of The Nurtured Heart Approach®. He is dedicated to awakening the greatness in all children and in particular the world’s intense and challenging children.
The approach’s core methodologies, which were born out of his extensive clinical work, effectively inspire difficult children to channel their intensity in successful ways. Worldwide, hundreds of thousands of parents, educators, and treatment and child-advocacy agencies have used this approach with great results.
Howard has been called one of the most influential living persons working to reduce children’s reliance on psychiatric medications. His work also supports children in resisting addictive substances. He has been a featured guest on CNN, a consultant for 48 Hours, and has consulted for numerous psychiatric, judicial, and educational programs. He currently instructs educators, parents and therapists in this work through live presentations and Internet-based courses via the Nurtured Heart Online University. Although he has done extensive doctoral work in Clinical Psychology and Educational Leadership, his own years as a difficult child have contributed the most to his understanding of the needs of challenging children.Howard_Glasser-1.2
Though the Nurtured Heart Approach® began as a means for helping challenging children, all parents and educators, even those with well-behaved children, can benefit from learning how to inspire thriving relationships. He welcomes you to the Nurtured Heart Approach® and in finding a new path to greatness.
