NHA Trainer Library

{Compiled Exclusively for NHA Trainers}

If you are experiencing problems receiving email from CSF, please add the following email address to your safe sender/contact list.  *@childrenssuccessfoundation.com.  Please check your spam/junk/quarantine folders to make sure that the emails aren’t being sorted there.  AND be sure to check the email address that you used as your primary address when you registered for the CTI or last updated your Trainer Contact Update Form.

If you find unopened emails, please mark them as NOT SPAM and open one or more of them.

From this point forward, all CTI evaluations will be done electronically.  If you do not open the email sent on the last day of the training, and click the link for the evaluation, it is likely that your post CTI emails will not be delivered in timely manner —

If you continue to experience problems, please contact Jan.  janc.csf@gmail.com


Using the NHA Trainer Library

This NHA Trainer Library has been created to provide you with most of the information you will need to be successful in your role as an NHA Trainer. Please use the resources provided in this Library before contacting CSF with your questions.

We celebrate the integrity of NHA Trainers. Your compliance of the requests below shows how responsible, committed and fair you are and that you are committed to work collaboratively for the best good of NHA and the people we serve. Thank you!

  1. These documents are updated frequently, especially those outlining responsibilities of NHA Trainers. Please re-read occasionally.
  2. There are several key Structural Documents that are your responsibility to be fully aware of. Please read them carefully.
  3. “Structural Documents” are NOT to be shared. Other NHA Trainers must access these documents directly from this Library.
  4. Legal Note: Any violation of these requests will be presented to the Ethics Committee and could result in the revocation of your designation as a NHA Trainer and your permission to use the Registered Trademarked name Nurtured Heart Approach®.

NHA Brochure - Trainer Edition for Purchase

CSF has designed and printed NHA Brochures that you can use and customize for your business/outreach purposes. There is a space on the back on which you can affix your card or address label.

For more information & ordering, please visit: www.ChildrensSuccessFoundation.com/nha-brochure-purchase

  • Rates for the brochures have increased slightly to cover the cost of increased postage rates.

Brochures can also be purchased at the Certification Training Intensive at the Bookstore table.

NHA Elevator Pitches

In past CTIs Trainers have an opportunity to gather their thoughts about how to describe NHA in 1 minute or less. This is commonly called an elevator pitch. Here are some of the elevator pitches that have been submitted to CSF. We hope they will inspire you for your own word smithing.

If you have not shared yours already, please do so now (it’s never too late). Simply email janc.CSF@gmail.com with your elevator pitch and the city and year of your last CTI.
