The materials are protected by copyright laws and treaties around the world. Where I am legally able to do so. I grant to you a worldwide, non-exclusive, royalty-free, revocable licence to view this content on a computer or mobile device via a web browser, to copy and store this content in your web browser cache memory and to print limited pages from this website for your own personal, or non-commercial use.   They are not to be used for educational or therapeutic purposes without an appropriate license in place.

You should not download and print our posters from online files on the website or from any recordings or in your online courses without explicit written consent.  If you wish to use, distribute or reproduce any part of this content (text, images, resources including look and feel) for anything other than personal use - for example for an educational or therapeutic purpose - you will need to set up an appropriate licence.   An organisation may if appropriately accredited,  be granted a licence to support others using these materials but participants may not use our resources for educational or therapeutic purposes, or claim to be a licensed I Matter Practitioner without explicit written consent from I Matter Training Ltd.

Reasons for Copyright Conditions   These resources have been developed to assist people in understanding their child and themselves.   They are provided as part of a carefully structured training process intended to help individuals, families, organisations and communities bring about positive change in relation to professional-parent understanding, of the significance of child development, brain development and the adult role. As a project, we feel passionate about the need to value the parenting role and build a network of practice, so we aim to provide resources that are of high quality to people under pressure.  Photocopying and distributing these resources without appropriate consent represents a violation of this intent and an undermining of a process that we believe is important to the change process.   

I take the protection of my copyright seriously. If I discover that you have breached the terms of the above licence, I may seek to prevent you from using my resources in future and may take further legal action if necessary.

​It is also unlawful to financially profit from or distribute another author’s copyrighted material unless written permission is obtained and it would be in violation of the ethical standards of any professional, parent, school, service or business who supported this practice.  I take the protection of my copyright very seriously and will if needed take appropriate action.​
