Book launch: Moemoeā: Māori Counselling Journeys

Date / Time: 30 May 2017

Your are warmly invited to attend the book launch of Moemoeā: Māori Counselling Journeys to be held at the Te Kohinga Mārama Marae, Te Kura Toi Tangata Faculty of Education, Gate 4, Hillcrest Road, Hamilton from 2.45pm - 5pm.

Dr Sarah-Jane Tiakiwai, Deputy Vice-Chancellor Māori will launch the book. To attend please RSVP here

The book is a practical and accessible resource for those working alongside whānau Māori. Each chapter demonstrates clear links between practice and philosophy, situating these in whakaaro Māori and in contemporary Western ideas.

Practice stories show Māori cultural ethics at work in: counselling, supervision, group work, research, advocacy, and professional education. In their weaving of whakaaro Māori and narrative practice, the stories will inform and inspire practitioners who work alongside Māori, in diverse settings. Throughout the book the voices of both whānau and counsellor explore what happens when mana is recognised, called into presence, and engaged in the task of reimagining the future.
