I Matter Relationship Health Getting Started
Relationship Health is an area of wellbeing practice that has been overlooked. It has implications for so many aspects of life at home and at work: our mental health, physical health, education outcomes, crime statistics, our roles in teams or as parents-carers.
Developments in research now clearly indicate that relationships and life experiences in general, have a major impact on how the brain develops and functions. The good news is that we can use these new understandings to help us take the steps needed to support greater relationship health - both through good preparation with the skills for relationships or through well-informed help when there are challenges. The I Matter Framework is a way of learning about this research in an easy to understand format.
As part of your expression of interest you will start thinking about your role with its varied dimensions and identify the top priorities for the results that you want.
The I Matter Programme will help you get clear about what to focus on to be more confident and effective in helping yourself and your family.
IN REALITY OUR EVERYDAY ROLES HAVE MULTIPLE DIMENSIONS.
