Welcome!  The I Matter Getting Started Short Course offers an easy access Introduction to the I Matter Model and to the issue of Relationship Health.  

 I Matter is something to study over time so the Getting Started Workshop introduces what we call the first dynamic loop.

This workshop is for professionals and parents-carers who: 
+ know that some new thinking is needed to address the current issues around child and adult wellbeing
+  Want to help one or more children who are struggling with mental health or challenging behaviour issues
+  Feel helpless in the face of long wait lists and want to know what they can do to help themselves
+  Feel worried about where things are going and want to be part of the solution not part of the problem
+  Have heard about something called I Matter and relationship health think it might be interesting

After the workshop or online course we hope participants will:
+ Have gained a new sense of clarity about what is happening right now and where they want to go
+ Feel clearer about some immediate steps they can take to make a difference
+ Feel more hopeful that there is a way of understanding what is happening that makes sense
+ Know about a way to be part of a positive network that is aiming to support them in their own role

Here is what professionals and parents have said

I have liked so many aspects of the I Matter Training. It has given me much more clarity, confidence and strength to help myself and my child. I can only sing its praises in every way. It has made a huge difference to how I see myself, my situation and my children and has given me the tools to be a better parent/coach for my children. It has also helped in other areas of my life such as work. Parent of children aged 5-11yrs

This training has taught me way more than I could have imagined, I love it!       Foster Carer

This training has changed the way I practice at work and in my home relationships. I have enjoyed learning online and found the modules manageable with enough to be stimulating.  I really enjoyed the dynamic of the group - it was interesting hearing everyone's varied experiences.   The changes I have made have benefited me personally, and my family and my professional role.  I want to carry on and learn more.     General Practitioner who completed Core and Extended Learning Journey
