PSYCH575

Kaupapa Māori Psychology

Indigenous psychologies are sensitive to context, conscious of history and responsive to multiple ways of knowing and being in the world. This paper will cover topics relevant to students who wish to work as psychologists in applied settings, in particular, clinical, community and organisational settings and applied psychological research. Working responsibly with Maori and other indigenous peoples will be a central issue in this module. The themes to be covered include: developing a Treaty of Waitangi analysis, understanding Treaty principles and provisions and developing applications for engagement with indigenous peoples. Development of a critical analysis through in-class discussion and activity forms the foundation of the teaching method.
