We’re looking for passionate, appropriately qualified psychologists, social workers, counsellors or mental health practitioners to be part of an innovative new service designed to interrupt the cycle of intergenerational offending for rangatahi and their whānau.
E ngā reo, e ngā mana, hūri noa I te motu, tēnā koutou katoa.
He tūranga tēnei e wātea ana ki roto o Kia Puāwai
If you’re passionate about making a lasting difference in our communities, this is the role for you. You’ll work with rangatahi and whānau who have a real desire to turn their lives around and break the cycle of intergenerational offending.
You’ll be part of a team delivering an exciting new programme called Functional Family Therapy – Cross Generations (FFT-CG). This programme is an international first that’s been specifically designed for rangatahi and whānau involved with the New Zealand justice system. It’s an adaptation of FFT Standard, an evidence-based model we’ve been successfully running in New Zealand for ten years.
As a Functional Family Therapist, you’ll work with rangatahi and whānau in their own homes using the FFT intervention model. You’ll have the unique opportunity to weave Māori and Pasifika cultural frameworks into your practice with ongoing support from our Kaumatua and others. You’ll also receive on-going training and clinical support to help you develop your professional practice and have access to 24/7 support from our senior leaders
