He Puna Whakaata
He Puna Whakaata refers to a state of reflection and the potential for rejuvenation and transformation. Understanding illness and wellbeing in any culture requires consideration of the underlying values, philosophy, and ideology that influence both the seen and unseen manifestations of distress and wellbeing.
This training provides practitioners with some ways to use elements of mātauranga Māori in a therapeutic context. The activities are discreet but can be used together as part of an intervention package or to assist in negotiation of a treatment plan.
