ADOM reflections e-group

This email group provides an easy-to-access forum to share questions, ideas and news related to ADOM. The group has around 120 members, mainly those trained as ADOM trainers/champions by Te Pou.

There are no set rules, as we want the group to create and shape its own purpose and conversations. However, the Te Pou ADOM team will intervene from time to time for clarity and consistency purposes.

To join the group or unsubscribe, please contact Mark Smith.

ADOM videos

The following videos have been created to give practitioners a clear understanding of how ADOM is intended to be used.

Previous Matua Raki consumer lead, Suzy Morrison, talks about ADOM from a consumer/tangata whai ora perspective.
Two practitioners discuss ADOM implementation in a kaupapa Māori service.
An actor and clinician portray the use of ADOM.

Please note this is not a therapeutic training video. Engagement styles may differ in terms of language, seating arrangements, props and tools.


The answers to any questions or themes that emerge from the ADOM reflections e-group and training events that are not answered in the practitioner's guide are shared here.
