The mission of the Children’s Success Foundation, a 501(c)(3) non-profit educational organization, is to advance the work of the Nurtured Heart Approach®, a dynamic relationship-focused methodology that builds Inner Wealth® in children, empowering them to channel their intensity in productive ways, ensuring their successful future.
Our vision is to provide the training, resources and support necessary to enable parents, educators, and treatment professionals to transform the challenges of working with “intense” children into creative, collaborative relationships, in homes, schools and communities across the globe. The Foundation supports NHA goals in the areas of Training, Research and Evaluation, Community Collaboration, and Project Implementation.
The Children’s Success Foundation fosters the work of the Nurtured Heart Approach® by conducting training programs to support parents in building Inner Wealth in their children, educators formally implement the approach in school systems, and help therapeutic professionals meet the unique mental health needs of “intense” children. In the last 20 years, the Nurtured Heart Approach has been adopted in realms of parenting and education around the world and has found its way into thousands of classrooms, as well as a myriad of other high-needs child advocacy services, such as special education, foster care and juvenile justice systems.
CREATOR OF NURTURED HEART APPROACH
PRESIDENT OF CHILDREN’S SUCCESS FOUNDATION
Howard Glasser is the President 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 is the author of Transforming the Difficult Child, currently the top-selling book on ADHD; Notching Up the Nurtured Heart Approach: The New Inner Wealth Initiative, a leading book on school interventions; and All Children Flourishing, on using the Approach with all children, difficult or not. Four of his eight books are in the top one percent of all books on Amazon, confirming the need and relevance of his message and methodology. He is currently working on his latest release entitled Igniting Greatness.
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.
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.
