The first Kaupapa Māori minor in psychology offered in Aotearoa welcomes students next semester at the University of CQ9传奇电子游戏官网首页.

头的心理学, 里德教授文森特, says it will provide students with the opportunity to engage with a Kaupapa Māori perspective at the beginning of their careers.

“While there are psychologists who have this approach, 他们实施了Kaupapa Māori干预措施, there’s nothing systematic related to training they receive at university.

“通过提供未成年人的资格, we’re providing tomorrow’s psychologists with a head start on that way of thinking and engaging with mental health issues.”

A Kaupapa Māori psychology approach is underpinned by Māori philosophies which ties into how Māori and indigenous peoples engage with psychology.

“The minor recognises that everyone has a different lens, a different way of thinking about that person and the issues they’re facing, 并且会找到多种解决方案,”文森特说. “这是非常强大的.

“在心理健康方面, Māori are over represented in almost any negative statistic that you can think about. The kaupapa Māori minor is designed to try and ameliorate that in some way but also to speak to those people and give them pathways so that you have better efficacy for interventions and better outcomes.”

The programme has been developed by Associate Professor Bridgette Masters-Awatere (Te Rarawa, Ngā我te让依, Tūwharetoa ki Kawerau) whose research includes consideration of a collective experience, 从whānau获取多个语音, hapū, 艾维, 机构, 和社区. Bridgette says the centering of Māori cultural knowledge and context in psychological training is long overdue.

这个辅修科目反映了该校的校训 Ko Te新西兰 (for the people) and through Vision Mātauranga we are able to raise the standard of training offered to our students.There is a growing momentum towards learning Māori culture and language. 例如, CQ9传奇电子游戏官网首页要庆祝Matariki了, our first national holiday that recognises te Ao Māori. 新西兰已经为这种变化做好了准备.”

Vincent says the results of using a Kaupapa Māori approach in the prison system supports the idea that it will have better outcomes in a wider context.

“People who engage in a kaupapa Māori approach then start thinking about a Māori world view and a Māori way of thinking. They may become more connected with a marae or  their wider whānau support network than beforehand. This by itself can lead to better mental health outcomes”

Vincent says the proof of the approach is very much in the pudding.

“Look at the metrics, look at the efficacy, look at the outcomes. This is an incredibly effective way of dealing with mental health.”

The psychology minor in kaupapa Māori will have its first intake in B Trimester 2022.
