Restorative responses: Healing, learning and improving after harm

Restorative practice
Have you observed or been affected by health care harm? Consider attending this interactive hui to learn more about restorative responses to health care harm.

Hui participants will learn how restorative practice and hohou te rongo (peace-making from a te ao Māori world view) are emerging in Aotearoa New Zealand. Mātauranga Māori is an important root of restorative philosophy here, and te ao Māori experts will facilitate a kōrero about how hohou te rongo might be provided alongside culturally safe restorative practice. 

Health professionals who have completed Te Ngāpara Centre for Restorative Practice Victoria University of Wellington micro credential course will share their experiences of:

  • successes and challenges of developing restorative initiatives across various settings, such as mental health and addiction and maternity
  • the national restorative response into harm from surgical mesh 
  • embedding healing and learning within the health and disability systems. 
Who should attend?

Anyone involved in health care and interested in a restorative response to healing, learning and improving from harm. $55 per person plus GST.

At the end of the hui you will be able to:
  • describe the restorative system principles and why they are important within the unique context of Aotearoa New Zealand
  • appreciate how restorative responses might be used to heal, learn and improve after harm
  • identify enablers and barriers in your own context.
