Over the last 10 years, professionals, and parents in a wide variety of situations have taken part in our CPD accredited I Matter training programme.  Now we have further developed a licensing structure so we can share the thinking more widely.  Here is the sort of thing participants say...

  • “I Matter Training completely changed the way I feel about my role at work
  • “I Matter Training gave me the confidence that I can help my child and have a better relationship with him.  Even my relationship with my partner has improved!
  • “I Matter Training gave me tools that I wish I had been given so many years previously
  • "The I Matter Framework and Training has been adopted by our Integrated Care Community to support our local strategy for work with children and families"

Now we are moving into a new phase of sharing the ideas more widely. So we would love you to join us...

    “The I Matter approach of dealing with the adults before the children is such a useful way to look at things and has turned the dynamics on its head for me. I realised my stress levels are having a huge impact on all of us as a family and learning to change this is starting to make a difference.”

  • I Matter Training

    “The Headteacher and other staff now come to me. They are starting to spot the families who would be helped by some I Matter Training. I work flexibly - sometimes just with the parents and sometimes with the parent and child together.. We use the posters and I can see the moments when the pennies start to drop. This is a new way of working for us. I find it exciting to see the changes that happen. ”
