The I Matter Framework for Young People
Learning a powerful way of understanding relationships.
I Matter Training and Coaching for Young People
The I Matter Framework offers a powerful way of helping young people who are struggling or challenging. The training helps young people gain clarity about relationships and choices and a way forward.
However, one issue we see is that often adults focus on the changes that young people need to make and avoid looking at what changes they need to make first.
So practically what we like to do is work first with the adults and THEN involve young people. This way we avoid putting young people in the position of being expected to be more responsible than the adults they depend on. The younger the child the more important it is that the focus starts with the adults.
When we are confident that adults are understanding the key principles then a number of options can be offered for young people:
+ Parent-child consultations
+ Consultations for children with known professionals
+ Age focused 1:1 or small group workshops supporting the I Matter study process
