EXPLORE FIVE STEPS

Welcome!   The I Matter Five Steps Learning Journey is an educational programme primarily for adults with options for young people.
It was developed by Dr Cathy Betoin, Clinical Psychologist, Teacher and a Parent
The training brings the research together on what helps children and adults thrive into a practical easy to understand form

We have trained parents-carers of children with a full range of ages and needs and challenges

The I Matter Programme is designed to help adults and young people who are struggling with;
·  Challenging behaviour or mental health issues
·       Navigating difficult relationships
·       Unhelpful relational patterns
It offers a personal development process.

 

The I Matter Programme can be explored through:
 A Face-Face First Steps or Fundamentals Programme (via organisations)
 The Five Steps Online Learning Journey 
 A Supported Online Learning Journey

 

Participants to the I Matter programme learn about stress and wellbeing, child development, brain
development and the adult role, including the power of our beliefs and attitudes.

 

Adults take part in the I Matter Programme for the purposes of:
 Preparation for relationship health in a role in parenting or caring for children
 Strengthening relationship health (when there are mild-moderate challenges)
 Recovery or Relationship health (when there are escalated or complex challenges)
 Professional development or general education about relationship health

 

When there are more escalated challenges, additional support is always needed. For example:
 Agreed additional coaching
 Support from other services

 

Participants for the Five Steps Online Learning Journey need to be;
·       Willing to commit to an online programme (it is possible to take one step at a time)
·       Motivated to engage in self study
·       Available to access and engage with online I Matter discussion groups
·       Interested in developing healthy relationships

We work with partners and raise funds to support this intent.

I Matter Training can help Parents-Carers in Direct Roles with Children & Young People or Other Family Members

I Matter Training will help you to understand what is happening in challenging situations with children and young people you care for who are struggling - at home or at work.

The training will help you understand about the brain and about your own key role in improving relationships and wellbeing including the sorts of attitudes and behaviour changes that you can make to bring about positive changes to support your child’s progress – and your own. 

The Learning Journey is supported by a structured and systematic results focussed approach. You will gain increased clarity and skills for your role.

I Matter Training can also help Parents-Carers in Indirect Roles with Children & Young People for example grandparents, extended family

The I Matter Framework offers a new practical model for understanding what is happening in challenging everyday work and home situations. The clear explanations of the research evidence will show your own key role and the attitudes and behaviour change you can make to support positive relationship change in those you support.

Participation will also help you understand how to support other family members  

You will be able to help strengthen family members skills and confidence through bringing your own insight and encouragement.

There are three ways of progressing an I Matter Learning Journey in a Personal Role
