NZPsS Members $50; NZPsS Students $25; Non-Members $100
A 90 minute webinar with Dr Miriama Ketu-McKenzie
This presentation aims to address some of the engagement issues that commonly arise when working with Māori clients, and explore novel ways to overcome them. It presents an overview of differences in the worldviews of Māori and NZ Europeans and consider how those differences can influence communication and perceptions. It also challenges some of the widely held assumptions about Māori that can sometimes get in the way of effective psychological practice. This presentation is of most use to those who are new to working with Māori, as well as those who might benefit from being reminded of why working well with Māori remains a priority.
