Trauma has a Whakapapa

Trauma Has a ‘Whakapapa’ - Saturday 21 May

Presented By: Dr Alayne Hall  (Ngāti Whatua, Te Rarawa, Tainui)

Registered Psychotherapist, MNZAP

Founding Member of Waka Oranga:

National Collective of Māori Psychotherapy Practitioners


Abstract: This seminar is based on findings from a Kaupapa Māori research study that investigated Māori mothers’ experiences of partner violence and the nurturing of affectional bonds with tamariki (children).  The impact of interpersonal violence on women and children creates an inner world of complex intrapsychic pain.  Tamariki are often caught in the crossfire of partner violence with traumatic and often lifelong consequences that remain embedded within the psyche of tamariki and their whānau (family).  The transmission of trauma passes through each respective generation creating intergenerational patterns of trauma, where negative behaviours resulting from unresolved trauma persist.  From this perspective trauma has a Whakapapa (lineage).  Concepts and theories concerning Whakapapa trauma will be discussed throughout this presentation.

The Poutama series is suitable for all professionals working with Māori whānau.

Places will be limited – so please register early!
