Introduction to CTI Video

Two Concurrent Training Tracks {click below for info}

Both the Certified Trainer Track (first-time Attendees) and the Advanced Training Track (returning Attendees) are delivered concurrently at the NHA Certification Training Intensive. Certified Trainers and Advanced Trainers come together to learn, lead, and be mentored collectively. During all learning sessions, both Tracks will participate together, while there will be breakout sessions specifically to serve the needs of each training designation. This creates a community of learners, coaches and experts – an ideal environment for inspiration and collaboration.

Nurtured Heart Approach®

Certification Training Intensive

The Nurtured Heart Approach Certification Training Intensive (CTI) is a 5+ day (Sunday evening-Friday afternoon), live, certification program facilitated by NHA creator, Howard Glasser, for parents and professionals. Learn, in-person, the entire ethos and methodology of NHA through interactive presentations and small group practice & mentoring.  The Children’s Success Foundation (CSF) has crafted a comprehensive curriculum to support you – professionals and lay persons, alike – to easily learn this transformational approach. CTI is the most “experiential” offering in NHA, guaranteed to shift your paradigm into mastery of building Inner Wealth® in all of your relationships.

Your journey to becoming a Nurtured Heart Approach Certified Trainer and, if you choose, progressing to Advanced Trainer at your second CTI, will inspire you to not only embody the Approach, but will also give you tools to effectively communicate, teach and coach NHA in your family, community, school, or organization.

The Training culminates in being awarded the designation NHA Certified Trainer or Advanced Trainer. Professionals earn 32 CEs.

NHA Trainer Network
Subscription Based

*1 Year  Membership Included in the CT Registration

*Optional and Subscription Based after your first year as a Certified Trainer

  • CTI is based on Training Material that we call the
    NHA Visual Training Modules (VTMs) – PowerPoint & Keynote Slide Shows.
  • During your own learning process, you will also be learning how to guide others in learning NHA through the VTMs.
  • These VTMs are delivered through a comprehensive online platform – the NHA Trainer Network.
  • After CTI you will be invited to join the NHA Trainer Network so that you can use the same VTMs (in an abbreviated form) to train others.  *If you are attending the CTI for the first time, your first year’s subscription to the Trainer Network is included in your tuition.  If you plan to train or teach the approach in your agency/school or community, you are required to be a part of the Trainer Network. However, if you do not plan on teaching or training, not participating in the Trainer Network does not impact your certification status.

The Details

Fidelity

The NHA Certification Training Intensive (CTI) prepares you to share NHA publicly (if you choose) as a Certified Trainer or Advanced Trainer. Children’s Success Foundation hopes that you will share your enthusiasm for the Nurtured Heart Approach with your community in big ways. In order to uphold the Approach and ensure that it is taught accurately in its entirety, only NHA Certified Trainers and Advanced Trainers are authorized to formally teach the Approach. While NHA Trainers are fully supported to teach the Approach, only CSF is eligible to offer any kind of certification in the Approach.

Every person who embarks on the process of NHA Certification Training Intensive is first required to sign the NHA Fidelity Agreement.

Fidelity is an overall reference to consistency among those teaching Nurtured Heart Approach, so as to be teaching and conveying the approach in a predictable, reliable and consistent way. It ensures that anyone learning NHA, anywhere in the world, is receiving virtually the same information. Of course, every NHA Trainer will be bringing their own voice, energy and experience to the endeavor of sharing this model and method. That is the beauty of the process.

Fidelity and consistency are critical to NHA research and gauging its effectiveness. For this reason, only Certified Trainers and Advanced Trainers are sanctioned by CSF, the guiding entity of NHA, to deliver formal training in the Approach. Once you have signed the NHA Fidelity Agreement, and been awarded the designation of NHA Certified Trainer via your full participation at CTI, CSF is honored to grant you access to the standard resources for highly effective teaching, which we call the Visual Training Modules (VTMs). The VTMs are available on the online NHA Trainer Network. All publicly offered training in NHA must follow the VTMs.

Please direct any questions regarding fidelity to: DirectorOfTrainerNetwork.CSF@gmail.com

The Children’s Success Foundation (CSF) is the designated agent charged with upholding the integrity and teaching of the NHA in a consistent, fair and professional manner.

Conduct

During CTI we will discuss the Nurtured Heart Approach and how to implement it in various settings, situations and organizations. We will be asking you to participate in experiential exercises that may elicit emotional content. This program is in no way intended be a substitute for psychotherapy. It is expected that you remain mindful of your process and needs. Depending on the nature of your process, the facilitators and staff of the Training may not be available to guide you through personal terrain. We recommend that you seek professional help as necessary outside of the context of the Training to heal your deep feelings.

If at any time your style of conducting yourself interferes with the process of the facilitators or the group, you will be asked, in the spirit of the Nurtured Heart Approach, to “reset” yourself. If this becomes a process that is beyond the measure and constraints of the event and the needs of the other participants, you may be asked to participate in an “audit only” capacity, or you may even be asked to leave the event. If this is the case then there will be no refund given.

CSF Grievance Policy When a Certified Training Intensive (CTI) participant, either orally or in written format, expects action from a complaint; the following actions will be taken:

  1. If the grievance concerns the Presenter, the content presented by the Presenter, or the style of presentation, the individual filing the grievance will be asked to put his/her comments in written format. The CTI Training Ambassador will pass on the comments to the speaker, assuring the confidentiality of the aggrieved individual.
  2. If the grievance concerns the facilities in which the CTI was offered, the CTI Training Ambassador will mediate and will be the final arbitrator.
  3.   If the participant requests action, the CTI Training Ambassador will:
  4. Attempt to provide the participant with another CTI; or
  5. Provide a credit for a subsequent year’s training; or
  6. Provide a partial or full refund of the training fee.

Actions 3b and 3c will require a written note, documenting the grievance, for record keeping purposes. The aggrieved individual need not sign the note.

  1. If the grievance concerns our CE program, in a specific regard, the CTI Training Ambassador will attempt to arbitrate.
  2. Participants of approved continuing education courses may register complaints with the approval entity.
