Māori, Pacific and Indigenous psychology

Our research contributes to the development of Indigenous knowledge, theories, and practices that are responsive to the realities of Indigenous people.

We draw upon Indigenous methodologies and synthesised psychological frameworks within social, critical and clinical domains of psychology, and harness a range of critical qualitative and quantitative research modalities.

There are wider interdisciplinary intersections beyond psychology, including social justice, Māori, Pacific, Indigenous, migrant, refugee, cultural, and identity studies. There are also strong and overlapping connections with further research groups within psychology - critical, cultural, and community psychology, gender and sexuality, and clinical psychology.
