    Working with whānau

    Maori social work in schools covers the work of a group of kaimahi working as social workers in largely rural Maori communities. The focus of this text is on kaimahi who work for iwi Maori organisations. Five of these organisations supported the research for this book by enabling their social workers to tell the stories their work within their communities. They present the programmes that are offered in their communities; examples of the outcomes for whanau; and the role of the social worker.
