In spite of the importance of relationship health the issue and skills have been missed.
Welcome to the I Matter Professional Pathway for Professionals in Health and Community Roles. We have been training professionals in education roles in the I Matter Framework as a basis for effective work using a relationship health approach since 2009 as a direct response to seeing so many families and professionals struggling to find the insight and support they needed.
If you work or live with children and other adults you can add specialist knowledge to your current practice and join an enthusiastic professional community dedicated to delivering an integrated and collaborative approach to child and adult mental health challenges and the common co-occurring situations.
Our carefully structured Five Steps training programme draws the research evidence on children's mental health and wellbeing into a practical and easy to understand integration that makes sense to those you work with. This integration is known as the I Matter Framework. This sets out the links between key ideas, that are essential knowledge for those who support children or work in challenging settings.
The I Matter Learning Journey teaches the I Matter Framework and is for anyone who wants to increase their understanding of how to help children thrive. We have trained teachers, teaching assistants and residential carers (in direct roles) as well as NHS staff – doctors, nurses and health visitors – along with other health professionals, and social workers and family support workers who work through indirect roles.
I Matter Training can help Professionals in Direct Roles with Children & Young People such as Teachers, Teaching Assistants, Nurses, Carers
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 or the other adults in your life – 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 Professionals in Indirect Roles with Children & Young People for example, Senior Leadership Teams, Commissioners, GP’s, Psychiatrists, Paediatricians, Police Officers, Health Visitors, School Nurses, Psychologists, Therapists, Parent Coaches, Social Workers,
The I Matter Framework offers a new practical model for understanding what is happening in challenging everyday work and home situations. This integration of evidence shows 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 processionals and frontline staff. It will enable you to assist parents-carers in accessing training that makes a difference.
You will be able to help with building capacity for effective study support for other professionals through i) the recommendation process and ii) through developing your own skills in supporting others through an I Matter Journey.
