I Matter Relationship Health
Supporting Others Certification

All successful journeys start with noticing new details that have been overlooked

I Matter Relationship Health Practitioner Development
Supporting Others Certification

tinypeople-trans (1)
The I Matter Training Journey has been carefully designed to offer training in the overlooked issue of Relationship Health, with a view to support improved understanding between professionals, parents and young people.   There are now certificates that can be worked through.  However the certificates are not what an I Matter Journey is about.  Instead we focus on equipping participants for key roles they play in families, organisations and communities by ensuring that they have had time to reflect on issues of vital importance for their own role.

Fundamentally an I Matter Journey involves a personal development process that invites us to grapple with our own role in relationships.  This is an ongoing life long process.   So the early stages of an I Matter Journey involve learning key ideas and the later stages involve sticking with the challenges of putting that learning into practice.  

 I Matter® is a registered trademark and covers the resources that teach the I Matter Framework and the assessment and online learning tools that support provision of the I Matter Relationship Health Learning Journey.  The resources used to support the I Matter Journey are a key element of the learning approach.  So the way we support the learning journey aims to ensure that the fundamental ethos of the approach is shared and implemented with consistency by trained practitioners.   


Phase 1: Awareness (via Getting Started programmes)
Phase 2: Informed Practice (supported by Five Steps Online and Extended Journey Online study - via this site)
Phase 3: Supporting Others on an I Matter Journey (Link and Facilitator roles, supporting Phase 2)
Phase 4: Specialist Lead Roles (Relationship Health Subject Lead, Educator, Clinical Lead supporting Phase 1)
