Tiakina Te Āhuru Mōwai

Tiakina Te Āhuru Mōwai

Tiakina Te Āhuru Mōwai wānanga are focused on developing reflective frontline practitioners who will place wahine and their whānau at the centre of their practice.

The aim of Tiakina te Āhuru Mōwai is to develop strong reflective practitioners who place the wahine and her whānau at the centre of their practice. We understand women may present to various agencies with different physical or mental health problems and may be screened about family violence. Yet, most protocols will not ascertain the risk of self harm and suicide, or have a consideration of her mental health or that of her whānau – nor recognise that the help seeking behaviour maybe a sign of heightened risk.

The training programme is built on the practice evidence of Māori experts who have dedicated careers to working with Māori women and their whānau. The rationale for this programme was informed through a workforce needs analyses of mental health and addiction workers, family violence and social service agencies.
