Please find below some information on a very special training event that compass Seminars is hosting in Invercargill on Tuesday 15th February 2022.
Mauri Ora: The Metrics of Flourishing, is being delivered by Sir Mason Durie. Sir Mason has decided that the time is right to step back from his public speaking roles after the delivery of this seminar which means this will be your last opportunity to hear Sir Mason deliver this incredibly popular workshop (ever!). While it is being hosted in Invercargill, we are marketing this seminar nationally to ensure that everybody who wants to participate gets to hear about it.
The Metrics of Flourishing
with Sir Mason Durie
Compass Seminars is delighted to bring you the opportunity to spend a day with Sir Mason Durie who will discuss a range of topics relating to principles for working with Māori and Māori development. Sir Mason speaks with a freshness and clarity of understanding, if you have been fortunate enough to hear him speak before you will know that this is an opportunity not to be missed.
Regardless of whether your professional focus is on prevention, promotion, treatment, education, rehabilitation or development, well-being is ultimately dependent upon the dynamic interaction of people with each other and with the wider cultural, social, economic, political and physical environments in which people live. Sir Mason will unwrap how Māori wellbeing is the product of these combined forces acting on the past and present experiences so that future prospects can be enhanced.
Some of the key areas that will be discussed include:
Sir Mason Durie is from Rangitane, Ngāti Kauwhata and Ngāti Raukawa. He is a medical practitioner and specialist psychiatrist and has held the positions of Professor of Māori Studies and Deputy Vice-Chancellor at Massey University. He has particular interests in health, education, indigenous advancement, mental health care and Māori development. He has served on a number of Boards and Trusts, including the Families Commission, Secondary Futures, Te Papa Tongarewa, the Foundation for Research Science and Technology, the National Health Committee, the Mental Health Foundation, the Alcohol & Liquor Advisory Council, the Ministerial Advisory Committee on Māori Health, the Whānau Ora Governance Group and the Mental Health Foundation. He was knighted in 2010 for his contributions to Public Health and especially to Māori Health.
This is the final time this seminar will be presented ever! Register early to avoid disappointment.
