On Open Tents, Beaches and Cultural Divides
A Panel Discussion
The 2012 New Zealand Association of Psychotherapists (NZAP) Conference in Wellington included a panel discussion which addressed the topic: “How culture creates other: Traversing difference or fractured divide”. The panellists were Tess Moeke-Maxwell, Donna Orange, Wiremu Woodard, and Jeremy Younger. Their speeches are presented in this article alongside edited highlights from the ensuing discussion, with introductory and reflective comments from myself as the panel chair.
