This is a practice-oriented workshop to assist leaders, practitioners and trainees to respond in strengths-based ways to the expectations and aspirations of Māori clients
and communities, and to work confidently in the area of responsiveness to Māori.
Responsiveness to Māori needs and aspirations, from governance through to operations, is now a requirement of government contracts and many community funders. A deeper
understanding of historical context, strategy and available practice models will assist in funding applications, strategy, service provision and evaluation of your Treaty-based practice.
Ingrid will introduce the issues with a brief refresher on Waitangi Tribunal evidence of Māori aspirations for the Treaty relationship as shown in He Wakaputanga (the
Declaration) and new evidence about Te Tiriti o Waitangi.
Rawiri will showcase his doctoral research into inter-generational impacts of colonisation,and show how trauma can be approached without activating a deficit perspective. He will cover current models which allow practitioners and clients to work respectfully together on analysis, action and aspirations. Within these frameworks, Western models such as CBT and Māori models such as Whare Tapa Wha can all be used.
The workshop will include presentations, group discussions, and the opportunity for organisational strategising. (Bring your current strategy documents and funding applications, etc, with you to look at through a different lens during discussion).
