I Matter Framework Training for Professionals - CPD Option

Improving the Effectiveness of Your Team Practices and Strategy with Children and Families

Are you a Teacher, or a GP or a Social Worker or a leader who is juggling many seemingly disparate elements?

Are you wondering how to  be more effective in your role and patch in the face of stretched resources? 

Do you know there is a need to support challenging children and families more effectively?

The I Matter Framework helps practitioners to improve their community practice with children and families as it:

+ Brings research evidence together into a very practical accessible whole to support decision making

+ Deepens understanding of key elements of the evidence to support better joined up thinking and formulation

+ Starts with the professional's own wellbeing  and decisions as they impact home-life and work life balance

+ Supports a hopeful perspective - that even in challenging times it's never too late to make a difference!


The most consistent feedback that we get from our training in answer to this question is that the core of I Matter Framework Training is for everyone who lives or works with children.    For professionals this can be GP's Teachers, Teaching Assistants, School Nurses, Health Visitors, Social Workers, Therapists, Psychologists.   We can support individual training but our key interest is in supporting better joined up longer term thinking.    

We also note that when it comes to the care of complex children it is vitally important for staff to have a more in depth grasp of the content drawn together in the I Matter Framework.   It is very clear that better understanding can impact effectively on outcomes for vulnerable children with social emotional challenges, and with poor understanding our professional practices can significantly exacerbate core difficulties.

At present a core priority of our work is to support conversations with professionals about evidence and strategy

Strategy can be in relation to an individual or a group or a school or small or larger community

We like bringing professionals together from health and education and social care so they can revisit good evidence

We also like to work with adult services to support conversations about how we care for children and what can change.

Our aim is to support shared thinking about really important questions about why so many children are struggling

We believe that this is how deeper social change can happen.


Our carefully structured training includes

+ Awareness Building including Senior leaders Orientation 

+ Foundation and Intermediate Level Insight into the I Matter Framework (levels 0-2)

+ A Community Building Process that supports formulation skills for professionals and for parents

+ Training for Lead Professionals for inhouse developments (levels 3-4)

+ Advanced Practitioner Training for complex care contexts (level 5)

Since my I Matter Traiing I am curious about behaviour rather than stressed by it.   I used to get annoyed so often. 

Now I absolutely love my job   Teaching Assistant and Parent

Before I Matter Training I was in overwhelm.   Now I am much more aware and more hopeful in relation to my patients.

I am also more careful to keep things in balance
