I Matter Link Training: Preparation for Supporting Others

Focus on Formulation


THE I MATTER LINK TRAINING - PREPARATION FOR SUPPORTING OTHERS TRAINING  is intended for professionals who are interested in preparing for Senior Link,  Link and Lead Practitioner Roles.

This is an in person 2 day course in which we work with case examples brought by participants and explore the process of creating an I Matter Informed Formulation to support decision making.  

Entry to the course is by application after completion of Step 1-2 and requires registration for Step 3-5.   Certification requires completion of the Five Steps and submission of a personal learning celebration, showing how you have been able to apply your learning in your own personal and professional roles to bring about positive relationship health change.    We prioritise those in a community hub area.

Those applying for Link Certification should have experience of work with children with additional needs and a master’s degree, doctoral degree, or current enrollment in a graduate program within an education, health or mental health-related field. Therapy experience is highly recommended, but not required.
