Since the beginning of 2018, Te Rau Matatini has been working with the Trauma Informed Care for Māori Advisory Group to identify practical ways in which trauma informed care can be incorporated into workforce responses and service models. At the same time Te Rau Matatini has also been reviewing and compiling relevant literature to further inform knowledge and understanding of trauma informed care for Māori. Included among the key themes identified in the literature are:
- The importance of a Māori health worldview.
- The recognition of historical and intergenerational trauma.
- The impact of government policy and implementation.
The Te Rau Matatini Trauma Informed Care for Māori literature review is available in the Te Rau Matatini Publications and Resources section of our website.
