About Relationship Health Assessment

tinypeople-trans (1)

Relationship Health is an important element in supporting the development of any child or young person.  It is a particularly important detail if a child has additional needs due to the longer period of dependency of the child on the support of the adult.  In addition if a child has an additional needs, ensuring that the relationship health is as strong as possible creates the conditions that helps the adult be most effective in helping the child overcome their specific challenges.
The purpose of an adult-child relationship health assessment is therefore to explore whether a specific relationship with an adult in a role of parental responsibility is currently managing to effectively support the child in progressing through  priority social emotional and developmental milestones and to make recommendations about the specific details that need attention to ensure that relationship health progresses in the most supportive and effective direction.    The elements which are focussed on in a relationship health assessment are derived from an understanding of the I Matter Framework which provides the theory and theory to practice foundations for our recommendations.

Assessment, consultation and personalised support with your I Matter learning journey is provided by certified practitioners.
This is usually provided as an extra service to registration for the online Level 1 programme

After a first initial brief enquiry discussion, an initial assessment process is based on an indepth questionnaire.  This questionnaire will form the basis of any subsequent consultation or coaching process and provides the foundation for reviewing progress.   In a consultation an I Matter relationship health informed practitioner will work with you to help you start to understand more about your own situation with the help of the insights of the I Matter Framework.  This means that through the consultation and training process, we aim to help you make sense of:

  • What is happening right now
  • When the difficulties started
  • What factors may have contributed to the difficulties
  • What is keeping the difficulties going
  • What strengths and resources are present
  • What skills need practising in order to see progress

We encourage you to commit to the learning process as long as is needed to bring about healthier happier relationships and confidence.  Professionals, parents and young people tell us that this way of seeing things feels supportive, empowering, refreshing and hopeful.
