The I Matter: Intermediate Stage: Thinking Developmentally 

Helping You to Help Children Who are Struggling -  with Theory made Practical

This course builds on the Foundation stage.   

 

CPD Course THE I MATTER PROJECT 21488.jpg

 

In the Intermediate Stage of training we take a close look at some vitally important details about how children develop.    This knowledge is more and more important and yet there are many professionals who support children and families who do not have a good understanding of children's development 

So the Foundation Stage is about making time in your life to do some deeper thinking.  What does the Evidence o n development have to say for YOU in your every day practice and in the roles that you play.  What exactly are the implications?   So it is best to see the course as giving yourself reflection time and time to listen into the experiences of others.    After this course, if you want to learn more you can go on to the next steps of developing a strategy to support others.

At the Intermediate Stage Your Mission or Challenge.... should you choose to accept it.... is to spend the next 4-6 months diving into the details of childrens social emotional development and reflecting with others about your own key role in relation to one or more children - maybe a child who is struggling - so that you can build your confidence and understanding of what key steps are needed from you to make a difference to their mental health and well-being -- and your own.

I MATTER: INTERMEDIATE A:  THINKING DEVELOPMENTALLY

In the Intermediate stage we dive into the details of the foundations of children's social emotional development.  This is an area that is very poorly understood in both education, health care and social care practice but it is vitally important when working for best results with the most vulnerable children.

The Intermediate A covers essential theory delivered through videoed teaching sessions and study support small group webinars and forum

INTERMEDIATE B:  NURTURING GROWTH

The Intermediate B course is a 6 week Theory to Practice Intensive.   It is particularly suitable for those with direct face to face caring responsibilities for one or more specific children.

You will log onto a group platform 3-4 x a week to share your reflections on I Matter in practice with a focus child or situation.   Your online coach and group members will provide supportive feedback.

We offer professionals an opportunity to complete this exercise in a parent role.  This is only suitable when relationship challenges are not currently escalated.   It can however be a very powerful learning experience.


Everything you need to get started

The I Matter Intermediate Stage builds on formats introduces in the Foundation stage.

The course is suitable for those in everyday and higher pressure professional and parenting situations.  It is helpful to have a focus child.  However this does not have to be a current relationship

This approach rebuilds the hope and confidence of professionals and parents by providing a language and concepts that we can all work together with that ties elements together. It just makes complete sense
