Get Started with the I Matter Model
The Foundation of Relationship Health Practice
HELPING YOU TO HELP YOUR CHILD AND OTHERS WITH A RELATIONSHIP HEALTH APPROACH
Welcome! The I Matter Getting Started Workshop (and the linked online First Course) offer an 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 and the Five Steps Process.
This workshop or online course 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
