The Nurtured Heart Approach® Workshops

Austin Montessori School is pleased to offer Parenting Workshops on the The Nurtured Heart Approach®

The Nurtured Heart Approach® teaches adults to identify and set clear boundaries with children while encouraging us to focus on the behaviors, values, and characteristics that we want to see our children carry into their world.
 
Workshops will be presented by Jeffrey D. Swan, MA, LPC. Jeffrey holds a Master's Degree in Counseling Psychology from UT Austin and is a Nurtured Heart Approach Advanced Trainer with almost two decades of experience using the approach. He works with children, adolescents, adults, and families. He co-founded Austin Child Therapy, PLLC, which provides training and support services to pediatric therapists in the Austin area.
Jeffrey provides several services, including individual psychotherapy, parent training, professional development for schools, and training and workshops for professionals who work with children. During the 2021-22 School year, he will be training the Austin Montessori School faculty and staff in The Nurtured Heart Approach® and will conduct two in-person workshops for Austin Montessori School parents. Grandparents and other immediate caregivers such as nannies are also invited to attend.
