Pacific Competency (Addressing Family Violence through Pacific Cultural Frameworks)

The Nga Vaka Conceptual Frameworks inform eight ethnic specific programmes. The programmes provide participants with an in-depth insight to cultural approaches to achieving family wellbeing, especially when dealing with family violence.

This cultural training has been developed to target qualified Pacific practitioners such as social workers, counsellors etc., either working specifically with Pacific families in the area of family violence or who are working with Pacific families and deal with family violence incidences or support as part of their wider work.

The ethnic specific programmes also allow attendance of those who have participated in the Part 1 “Introduction to Family Violence” programme and/or who are Pacific community support workers and members of the Pacific community who have a basic understanding of family violence legislation, data trends around family violence, safety and planning and managing risk for Pacific peoples and their families.

Each ethnic-specific programme is delivered in a combination of one of the ethnic Pacific languages and English.

The programme is FREE, however, due to high demand, limited spaces are available.

NOTE: This programme is specifically for Pacific peoples attendance only.
