The Relationship Health Book and Community
It's on its way!
RELATIONSHIP HEALTH FOR PROFESSIONALS AND PARENTS:
THE MISSING LINK IN CHILDREN'S WELLBEING?
A draft version of THE BOOK now exists! Phew!
It's out for feedback from our network!
Relationship Health for Professionals and Parents: The Missing Link in Children's Wellbeing? 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 Community aims to promote the concept of Relationship Health and is currently supporting us with the development of the I Matter Challenge Relationship Health Awards Scheme. 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 Community you can help shape how we can change our approach to child and family practice as well as incorporating Relationship Health thinking into your own decision making and conversations with other professionals and parents.
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 discussions take place last Weds of the month 4.30-5.30pm GMT and a recording is kept in the community library.
