I’m a researcher in the School of Psychology at the University of Waikato, with a particular interest in the well-being of young women. I hope that through better understanding problems and the ways young women cope with them, it will be easier to offer services and support that can help.
My current project is: ‘Factors implicated in young women’s self-harm: Risk, resilience and recovery’. This research is on risk and resilience in young women and I’m trying to recruit young women (15-25) to take part in interviews. The exact content of the interviews is flexible, but I’m interested in talking to young women who might be considered to be ‘at risk’, to talk about how young women deal with problems/risks, coping skills etc. (This current project is NOT an evaluation of a specific service; more of an exploration of how young women deal with problems in their lives, what works currently, and how things could be improved in general). I am needing to complete interviews by early December. Interviews are taking place in Auckland, Hamilton and Christchurch.
Please contact Cate Curtis for further information.
Several documents are attached:
If you’re willing to display the flyers but don’t want to have any other engagement, I understand how busy people are these days, and I’d be very grateful for any assistance that you can give.

A new process was introduced at the beginning of July for nurses referred to the Nursing Council for reviews of their competence to practise.
The new review process aims to better assess if nurses meet the required standards of competence for their scopes of practice and, if not, whether they require further knowledge, skills and/or a period of supervision to assist them to practise competently.
The major change is the introduction of simulated practice scenarios as an assessment tool.

Why this is called the ‘State of Care’ report. Care has many meanings. Children in the formal custody of the State are “in care.” This report is partly about the state of the care and services they receive. Care also has a more general meaning: to protect someone and provide for their needs. This report is also about how well the State cares for all vulnerable children in this more general sense. CYF plays a lead role in delivering both of these functions.
