Marriage and Family Therapy with Indigenous and Kiwi Families in New Zealand
In this workshop, Cristina Carter, LMFT will discuss her experience working in New Zealand with Maori youth and families who are the Indigenous people of that nation.  She will discuss her experience and insights into the struggles and needs of youth and families across intersectionalities, observed differences in clinical education and practice between the United States of America and New Zealand, history of the country and its impact on modern communities, and her new cultural insight and perspective about wellbeing and health. Christina will discuss her expectations and actuality, general cultural differences and difficulties, how it influences her work in assessing personal cultural identity, and its impact within the clinical context.

After completing her MFT degree in 2015, Cristina Carter decided to move abroad to practice therapy with hopeful intentions and excitement for combining her passions of family therapy and travel. There, she gained insight about the struggles and needs of youth and families across intersectionalities, observed the differences in clinical education and practice between the USA and NZ, learned about the history of the country and its impact on modern communities, and developed new cultural insight and perspective about wellbeing and health. This presentation will review Cristina’s experience practicing therapy in the Wellington area of New Zealand, including expectations and actuality, general cultural differences and difficulties, and Maori-influenced clinical considerations and practice.
