I Matter Certification

Relationship Health Matters and the sister site I Matter Training offer education and training that is designed to help parents and carers and professionals gain a deeper and more confident understanding of their own role in supporting the healthy development of children - especially those who are vulnerable, anxious or challenging.

The training we offer is carefully structured to
i) Build you understanding of key theory
ii) Build your key skills for everyday situations

For some reason the idea of taking part in training that supports Parenting and Caring has for many years been seen as evidence of failing at something.  This really needs to change because the research evidence is changing our understanding of everything - not just of what to do. It is also showing us why the adult role and the adult skills are so important.

Certification is the method through which we support you in consolidating and gathering evidence of your increased understanding.

Stage 1 Certification - Focusses on direct relationships 
Stage 2 Certification - focusses on supporting others

The most important thing is that the insight that you will gain and the skills we cover in I Matter Training will impact every aspect of your relationships with children, with adults, with yourself, with others in your work and family situations.

Once you have got it, I Matter Thinking will keep giving!
