Professional Background

Disrupting patterns of behaviour that cause distress to others has been a strong passion for our team at HMA for the past 35 years. We are committed to standing alongside workers to support them to work with the tough issues: family violence, offending behaviour, child safety and addictions work.

‘Working with passion and integrity to bring out the best in people’ is what we stand for. It is the reason we get up in the morning.

We continue through the development of online resources, in-room workshops, resource development, provision the website resources, and practice writing, to support best practice. I am pleased to provide an overview of a range of ways that HMA has contributed to supporting family/whanau well-being. If there is something that we can help you and your team with please do not hesitate to contact us. At HMA we recognise that learning and development is a significant investment in staff. Finding the most efficient way to support staff in gaining knowledge, along with building competency in practice, is the concern of most managers. At HMA we have developed a range of online products that are being utilised by organisations to support staff in their practice. Learning and development is a continuous process, repetiton being the key.

HMA has a rich schedule of learning and development experiences to support the work of your organisation. HMA is known for its blended learning approach to training. When you enrol in a course with us you will be given access to our Totara site where you will be able to undertake pre-course work so that you can make the most of the time in the face-to-face learning environment working on skills development.

All those participating in HMA online or in room workshops can be assured of:

  • Cutting edge practice ideas (we develop practice ideas, we write about practice and we are engaged in practice)
  • Creative and practical hands-on strategies (we won’t talk at you, we will work with you)
  • Engaging materials (we believe that material has to work in the room)
  • Competent trainers and workshop presenters (our people are well qualified and experienced in their fields of practice)
  • A certificate of workshop completion (this is helpful for professional development records)
  • We make learning fun and creative drawing upon multiple learning styles (our expectation is that you will join in and build upon the skills you already have).
