01-16-17 Igniting Greatness: Howard Glasser
Over the years, Howard Glasser noticed that applying the principles and practices of the Nurtured Heart Approach to himself, a mode he knew to be most effective at bringing forth a child’s greatness, had a surprising and powerful impact. Although he always considered himself a highly positive person, Howard had a realization that under pressure and under the stresses and gravity of life, he was actually self-critical and negative thinking. The Nurtured Heart Approach evolved into a personal practice that shifted him from random forms of negativity to an expansive focus on seeing and growing greatness, both within himself and through all his relationships. He found himself drawn powerfully into self-talk that went beyond any standard version of positivity. He found this to be transformative and life changing. From this, he developed a greatness practice that could be taught to others.
Howard Glasser, creator of the Nurtured Heart Approach, is a psychotherapist, author, and Chairman of the Board of the Children’s Success Foundation. He has authored multiple books about the approach, including Transforming the Difficult Child, which remains a top seller in the ADHD category more than a decade after its initial publication. Other titles include Notching Up the Nurtured Heart Approach: the New Inner Wealth Initiative (a leading book on school interventions) and All Children Flourishing (about using the NHA with all children, difficult or not. His most recent book is Igniting Greatness. www.ChildrensSuccessFoundation.com
