How to run. a nurture group is a great practical guide on how to set up and make the most out of nurture. It gives practitioners good grounding for the boxhall theory and how to practically apply this.
Really interesting read and great resource.

Would recommend to practitioners who wish to learn more about nurture theory and apply it to their setting.

A very brief book would be better to include information on theory but ok as a basic introduction.
