Intergenerational poverty, racism and trauma in New Zealand

Adriana van Altvorst ·
To many, New Zealand looks like and sounds like an island paradise with the world's most charismatic leader. New Zealand is a beautiful country with beautiful people and a beautiful leader. It hides our reality of intergenerational poverty, racism and trauma with high rates of child abuse, child poverty, bullying in schools, suicide and family harm. Maori, the indigenous peoples of NZ and Pacific Peoples are over-represented in those statistics. We have known this for years as have...

Kia ora @anne kurtz , I believe that we can blog/post on PACES for workshops/conferences/events that cost money as there have been many workshops/conferences/events that have been posted on PACES Connection from a number of communities associated with a cost to attend. The reason that I have promoted this workshop is that here in NZ we need our social workers to improve their practice, especially when working with Maori and Pasifika whanau. As professionals, and this covers every profession,...

Absolutely true, regarding importance of educating M H providers and others in the community of Maori and Pasifika wellbeing models in NZ. There are many who will benefit from this information who are able to pay the asked for registration fee. Often the case, those needing it most, cannot afford the fee. I've often wondered why Maori and Pasifika Indigenous healing practices are not covered by ACC, when Chinese Indigenous - Acupuncture and Medicines are in NZ. All the best in your endeavor.

This publication, entitled "ACEs in New Zealand and Subsequent Victimization in Adulthood..." by Fanslow et al., supports the need to address ACEs in New...

@Porter Jennings-McGarity (PACEs Staff) once again you have shared a very, very important document which I will now share with government agencies here in NZ because it provides supporting evidence that NZ needs to be trauma-responsive across ALL government agencies and ALL schools and ECE centres. Have a safe and enjoyable week with lashings of laughter and fun!!!
