He Kokonga Whare (HKW) Māori Intergenerational Trauma and Healing Programme

Te Atawhai o Te Ao has taken on a major research programme called He Kokonga Whare: Māori Intergenerational Trauma and Healing. This programme will run from October 2011 to September 2016.

This research focuses on Māori Intergenerational Trauma and Healing to generate new knowledge on inter-generational impacts among Māori. Māori experience high rates of trauma and these can be passed from one generation to another. We will investigate the ways that people make recovery from sexual abuse, from imprisonment and from cultural disconnection.
