About Relationship Health Professional Training
I Matter Informed Relationship Health Services offers an approach to developing relationship health that combines assessment, education and skills building through 1:1 and group and coaching support.
I Matter Relationship Health Professional
Relationship Health is an area of wellbeing practice that has been overlooked. It has implications for mental health, physical health, education outcomes, crime statistics, the role of parents-carers. The theoretical foundations of relationship health practice are set out in the I Matter Framework. This is a careful practical integration of the implications of decades of research evidence.
We therefore work with individuals and organisations to help build a workforce of experienced I Matter certified and licensed relationship health professionals in health, education and community roles.
Our key focus is on insight and skills building with a priority given to preparation for roles so as to prevent difficulties as well as early intervention when difficulties first become apparent.
The professional development pathway places a strong emphasis on the development of personal skills in relationship health and on putting your own house in order. We therefore focus on delivering this approach within a professionally well informed community hub
