Trauma-Responsive New Zealand

Wahoo traction ~ NZ is reaching out to get Trauma Informed


I attended Global Resiliency Accelerator group on Tuesday 7 March 2023 at 6 am NZTime hosted by Warren Larkin and Becky Haas.

I was smiling this morning ~ Great News I heard New Zealanders are reaching out to attend Trauma-informed programmes and Warren Larkin has visited New Zealand to work with others here in NZ

Warren Larkin shared this report with us this morning

He Oranga Ngakau ~ Maori Approaches to Trauma-Informed Care

He Oranga Ngākau is a research project funded by the Health Research Council, which aims to contribute to Māori models of health by exploring Kaupapa Māori Trauma Informed Care practice principles through conducting research that partners with Māori, and Indigenous practitioners to inform the development of a framework that supports both Māori and non-Māori practitioners working with whānau experiencing trauma.

The research team recently held eight (8) regional hui for He Oranga Ngākau in Tainui, Taranaki, Southland, Te Arawa, Kāi Tahu, Te Taitokerau, Tāmaki, and Te Tairāwhiti.  The research team is led by Associate Professor Leonie Pihama and Professor Linda Tuhiwai Smith and work in collaboration with Māori providers to identify key principles and practices that will provide a Kaupapa Māori model for Trauma Informed Care when working with whānau.

Becky Haas informed us that a group of New Zealanders are attending programmes focussed on creating trauma-informed schools
