BUS STOPS - Practical Tools

  • Renouf 1 Michael Fowler Centre (map)

A bus stop is an exciting, dynamic session format which lets you engage with presenters, and learn about a variety of topics in one go!  You'll move around the room in small groups to hear from up to four different presenters, making for a really personal experience.  

Water, Wairere and Wairua: an emerging model of supervision for youth workers in Aotearoa

In this presentation I will be introducing my model of supervision for youth workers called Water, Wairere, and Wairua. The presentation will inquire into key concepts around identity, reflection, kaitiakitanga, and culture to highlight the journey of a youth worker and touch on my own identity and journey in the development of my model. The presentation will be informed by relevant rangahau from Maori and non Maori bodies of knowledge and supported by whakapapa korero.
