ANZASW is using this opportunity to further support you to meet SWRB requirements for professional development. There are THREE MAIN REASONS why you should come to this CPD day that the ANZASW Waikato has organised for you:

1.      These workshops meet SWRB Core Competences 1 & 2: Competence to practice social work with Māori & Competence to practice with different ethnic & cultural groups in Aotearoa

2.      These workshops meet the new SWRB CPD requirements:
a.    Your CPD log will need to show evidence that one component of your CPD related to competence to work with Māori

b.    The CPD log is expected to show that you have utilised at least two types of CPD, at least one of which should involve engagement with others (https://swrb.govt.nz/for-social-workers/continuing-professional-development/)

3.      This is also a chance to meet with other social workers, put names to faces, eat good food and listen to new ideas… so please feel free to forward this e-mail to family, friends or colleagues.

I am also a registered Social Worker in Schools (SwiS) for Hauraki Māori Trust Board covering the Coromandel/Whitianga rohe. I hail from Far North and Whanganui. But most importantly I identify as takatāpui (gay male).

Aim of workshop

Participants will discuss and explore gender and sexual diversity at work.

Participants will have

  • An awareness of the LGBTQI+ community
  • Some ideas and tips around working with LGBTQI+ members of our community and in our workplaces

Workshop 2: Rebuilding the village for our people

Presenter: Raewyn Nordstrom

He uri ahau no Ngāti Hine, Rongomaiwahine, Ngāti Whakaue me Waikato Tainui

Ko Raewyn Tipene Nordstrom ahau.

I have a question for you all to consider. What will tamariki in care say to their mokopuna in 20 years about their experiences?

I hope their stories are going to change for the better. I hope we will hear less about loss of identity and disconnection and see more evidence of Oranga Tamariki helping to bring families together and strengthen them.

30 years’ experience as a family group conference coordinator and family court counsellor, Raewyn considers herself a creative, native disruptor helping to “rebuild the village” by inspiring and strengthening our people.

Aim of workshop

  • Use culturally appropriate techniques to connect with tamariki and their whānau
  • Be brave and connect with others who can support your engagement with whānau.
  • There is always someone that can help or awhi tamariki
