Ehara i te kīnaki noa: Harnessing te reo Māori and whakataukī within therapeutic practice – its not just the jam on top.

This webinar will be presented in two sections, the first section will be facilitated by Sarah (Hera) Kinred and the second by Dr Andre McLachlan. Hera’s section will provide an insight into the rich wisdom within Te Ao Māori that is accessible through the waharoa (gateway) that is te reo Māori. Andre’s section will cover the use of metaphor within therapeutic practice including the use of established practitioner introduced metaphors, such as those used in Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT); and working with whānau generated figurative language in the creation of healing narratives and metaphors.
