Manaaki: Mana enhancing and Mana protecting practice

Mana Enhancing and Mana Protecting Practice is training that has supported the addiction sector with the introduction to ‘mana’ in the implementation of the Substance Addiction Compulsory Assessment Treatment Act (2017).  It involves the validation of integrated cultural and clinical practice with an emphasis on whānau centered practice.

What is increasingly important for working in Aotearoa, are practitioners who understand and are informed by core concepts or values of Māori, and recognise these are universally applicable to the care, support and respect of all people. There also is an increased desire for practitioners to be more aware of core concepts of Māori that promote the interrelatedness of spiritual, natural and human dimensions’.
