Pūrakau - Understanding Maori Perspectives with Tipene Pickett
Maori are said to have a different perspective on wellbeing and mental health – so join Tipene Pickett in getting an insight into the place of storytelling, myths and legends in building individual maps of meaning.
Tipene has been a practitioner of Motivational Interviewing (MI) for the past 17 years and trainer of trainers for the past 6 years. A significant part of his training involves training health professionals in various organisations in health, employment and justice settings with an emphasis on embedding MI training within organisations by creating sustainable MI learning communities to ensure their health practitioners maintain proficiency. His special interest is in the relationship between MI and Cultural practices that facilitate change and he has developed a framework for framing the journey of MI within the context of Maori practices (Tikanga) particularly the Powhiri process of engagement.
