The Relationship Health Book
It's on its way!
THE MISSING LINK IN CHILDREN'S WELLBEING?
A draft version of THE BOOK now exists! Phew!
It's out for feedback to members of the Relationship Health Practice Network!
Relationship Health: The Missing Link in Children's Wellbeing (and what you can do about it) is for professionals who work with children and families who are also parents who suspect that we have been missing something important in our schools and community practices with regard to children, families and mental health. Why have all our efforts not been producing the outcomes we say we want? What does the evidence tell us about what has been overlooked?
The Relationship Health Book Club
The Relationship Health Book Club is a 3 week opportunity to think about the issues raised in the Relationship Health book and a chance to get to know other professionals who are interested in learning more about the same questions CLICK HERE
The Relationship Health Practice Network
The Relationship Health Practice Network is a membership of professionals who have taken part in the Book club or in I Matter Training who have a wish to join us with our Mission to bring about a shift in everyday understanding and practice when it comes to child mental health practice. We want to see Relationship Health being spoken about as naturally as Physical Health or Mental Health and accepted as equally if not even more important since it underpins so may important priorities for children.
As a member of the Relationship Health Practice Network we want you to get immediate value from being here. That’s why we’re aiming to offer five simple things:
Exclusive content and conversations about the issue of Relationship Health as set out in the book that you can’t find anywhere else.
Networking with people who share your interests in promoting adult-child and adult-adult relationship health
Opportunities to help support the development of the Relationship Health Practice Community
Stories, experiences, and ideas (not necessarily advice) around our shared mission (though nothing around identifiable individuals)
Inspiration, thought-provoking conversations, and expert perspectives
Each month we will host a discussion about the themes in the book with experienced professionals and parents for example
Here are some of the topics we will be exploring:
1. What is Relationship Health?
2. Relationship Health and Physical Health
3. Relationship Health and Mental Health
4. Relationship Health and Education
5. Relationship Health and Vulnerable Children
The Relationship Health Practice Network discussions take place third Thurs of the month 4.00-5.00pm GMT and a recording is kept in the community library.
