Kaupapa Maori wellbeing framework: the basis for whanau violence prevention and intervention


This paper highlights the need for alternative prevention and intervention strategies to curb the ?epidemic? of family violence within Aotearoa New Zealand. The paper discusses the context of violence and collaborations between government and iwi that have shown some success. It recommends frameworks which are based on strengthening wh?nau rather than those based solely on individuals or couple-based approaches. It offers the Mauri Ora framework as a possible approach.
