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.
