Kia Rangatira Te Mahi – Maori Best Practice Training Seminar
The National Network of Stopping Violence, Te Kupenga, advises a change in venue for its Maori best practice training
seminar, Kia Rangatira Te Mahi, beginning in the South Island this morning (Monday 27 August 2012).
The two-day hui will now take place at Te Puna Wanaka – the Maori and Pasifika school complex at the Madras Street
campus of CPIT (Christchurch Polytechnic Institute of Technology).
Te Kupenga has developed a best practice framework for Maori men’s stopping violence programmes, Kia Rangatira Te Mahi,
which details performance measures, examples and outcomes for seven key intervention principles.
Practitioners working with Maori victims and perpetrators of family and domestic violence will be welcomed with a
powhiri at Te Puna Wanaka at 10.00 am today. The seminar concludes at 4.00 pm tomorrow (Tuesday 28 August 2012).
