Join the host of The Children’s Success Foundation, Stephanie Rule, as she leads a discussion on the Nurtured Heart Approach®(NHA) in the Juvenile Justice System (JJS). Our guests, Harvey Uken and Toni Rose, bring a refreshing NHA perspective to working with youth in JJS, and the prevention of youth entering the system. Listen as the conversation unfolds and these dynamic Certified NHA Advanced Trainers share their experiences about building the Inner Wealth™ of the youth in the Juvenile Justice System.

Harvey Uken has been working as a Youth Counselor at the Red River Valley Juvenile Center (16 bed facility for 10-18) in Crookston, MN for the past 14 years. He was the Family Week Coordinator and Clinical Supervisor for eight of those years. These experiences with intense people in intense situations led Harvey to see the Nurtured Heart Approach as the way to help the children he serves towards heart-felt transformation when he was introduced to NHA in 2013. Harvey is looking forward to full retirement to begin employing the Nurtured Heart Approach in Northern MN and ND to help people recognize the greatnesses in themselves and others.
