THE CURRICULUM

THE NUUARIA METHOD  PRACTITIONER PRINCIPLES

GET THE MIND RIGHT FIRST.
Thinking is the cause; behavior is the symptom. For successful behavior change, start first by helping the client/ patient change how they think. 
 

BE THE CHANGE
Whether you’ve experienced what your client or patient has or not, be able to have been in their shoes by also learning how to change your thinking as the practitioner. This is experiential learning

TEACH THEM TO FISH.
Give a man a fish, and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish, and you feed him for a lifetime. We teach our clients and patients how to be self-directive in their goals and health for sustainable and permanent change.

Built into and through the implementation of Nuuaria's evidence-based behavior change work process, your client and patient will cultivate the 15 inner qualities required of permanent and sustianable change:

Self-Awareness; Self-efficacy; Empathy; Agency; Stress Management; Acceptance; Self-Regulation; Self-Examination; Resiliency; Self-Direction; Executive Functioning; Sense of Belonging; Growth Mindset; Relevance of Good Health, and Purpose
