Taking Forward I Matter First Course Teaching with Parents-Carers
Materials & Resources

The online resources, posters, videos, and how to guides provide a complete programme for certified practitioners in schools, primary care, prison and probation services and a wide range of other organisations who want to start embedding relationship health principles into their everyday practices.

Once staff are certified and well supported to deliver this programme in an organisation, and when leadership are making progress on the relationship health skills curriculum aspects then there are options to deliver a First Course programme for parents-carers which can be delivered through taught workshops without requiring online study of participants.

The I Matter First Course Training 

The I Matter First Course Training contains 12 key ideas in a programme designed for engaging individuals and groups for proactive relationship health practice .

Each idea has its own evidence base, poster, trainer summary, and practical exercises.  Real-life examples are used and each concept is taught in a discuss-illustrate-discuss format. The demonstrations bring the ideas to life and help to join up the dots.

Alongside the video explanations, the trainer resources provide a detailed explanation on how to teach and present the concepts.

After the First Course:  After the First Course we encourage participants to take responsibility for progressing their own learning journey and for building themselves the support they need to get the results they want through engaging with further supported learning opportunities

 

The I Matter Fundamentals Training for Couples or Parents-Carers 

The I Matter Fundamentals Training offers a more in depth programme than the First Course and is designed for engaging individuals and groups for proactive relationship health practice when more difficulties are present.   It is usually combined with a  regstration step.   Participants are usually invited by the Lead Practitioner so that each group will have a distinctive focus.

The training is combined with an assessment and consultation process that serves to focus participants in on the details that matter.

The I Matter Fundamentals Training for Education Practitioners

The I Matter Fundamentals Training for Education Practitioners in schools offers a more in depth programme than the First Course and is designed for engaging individuals and groups for proactive relationship health practice as a foundation for delivering the relationship health skills curriculum.   It is usually combined with a  regostration step

Training Requirements

Professionals interested in offering an engage programme in their own setting, should complete Level 1 online training as a minimum and should then apply to register as a Trainee I Matter Practitioner.   If they want to work within or for an organisation, the organisation should ensure that they have a core of at least 3 senior leaders with Level 1 training as a minimum commitment.  This is to ensure that the organisation progresses its own internal development process.

The ideas are taught in a highly practical fashion. Didactic presentation and demonstrations bring the concepts to life - group discussion and skills practice embed the skills for personal and professional use.

The I Matter Workshops aims to support your confidence in understanding the foundations for more confidence in relationships, especially the most challenging, by introducing you to the key ideas of the I Matter Framework and a relationship health approach - both the theory and the theory to practice.

Then you will have the challenge of implementing the ideas in your own situation!    This is all about investing in yourself so that you can make a difference to those that matter!
