Functional Family Therapy - Cross Generation
Oranga Tamariki has been piloting Pae Whakatupuranga, a new adaptation of functional family therapy, with the support of NZ Police, Department of Corrections, Kia Puāwai (formerly Youth Horizons), and the Functional Family Therapy company based in the United States, since July 2019.
The pilot has been evaluated at key points and findings have led to continual refinements and improvements to the pilot. The final outcomes evaluation will be released early in the new year.
