The NZPsS is meeting regularly with the Ministry of Health Director of Mental Health, John Crawshaw along with the NZCCP, University, Le Va, Corrections and other representatives to address the issues of workforce planning in relation to psychologists, shortages of Māori and Pasifika psychologists, shortages of internships and to assist the Ministry of Health to grow their knowledge of the breadth of psychologists’ expertise across a range of sectors. Meetings with the Ministry of Education are also held regularly, on the role of educational psychologists. The NZPsS also meets regularly with ACC to discuss issues, many of which have been raised by both NZPsS and NZCCP members and with the New Zealand Psychologists Board. We are also frequently called on to advise on clinical guidelines.

Professional Issues Ethics Matters Jack Austin is the current Convenor of the NZPsS Ethical Issues Helpdesk. He was one of the team that produced the Code of Ethics. He has been registered since the late 1970s and has had a varied professional life. This has included being a social worker, a teacher, Executive Assistant to the CEO of the Special Education Service and Board Secretary, Regional S.E.S. Manager, NZPsS President, and Private Secretary for Special Education for three Labour ministers. He has carried out tasks for the Registration Board from time to time and is currently self-employed, and Chair of a small DHB funded mental health provider.

Boundaries Boundaries. They’ve always interested me. So many, so different, from one person or group to another. When one considers definitions so much can vary, based on context, on personal philosophy and values, on cultural interpretations, or the Code of Ethics one refers to. Relating to a Code of Ethics, there must be black and white, no spectrum of greys, one would think… But there is grey. For instance, the data and insights we gather: they are in confidence and should remain so… Not always. You may have to make a judgement call on whether something a person has told you amounts to a health/safety risk, or refers to a significant crime. This means that, to some context, and with reference to your training, background and experience, you will have to make ‘boundary decisions’ throughout your career. People make these decisions on quite different

grounds. I espouse a conservative approach. Thus, “Is there a significant, persuasive reason, that is ongoing, for me to cross that line?” But I have colleagues who ask themselves (or their supervisor) “Is there any strong argument why I should not cross that line?” Or “What would the consequences be?” In my view of ethics if one is considering consequences as a deciding factor, to some degree the ethical principle has been dismissed. At the time of writing, apart from the law (a different Code of Ethics or action), the only boundary I can think of that is black and white is that of avoiding sensual relationships with a client. Some matters need to be kept at arm’s length, with distance maintained, to avoid bias, to avoid a descent from a professional role. But if one works in a small town, in a community, the boundary between personal life and work-role can become blurred. I’ve heard it said that one should consider not working in a ‘small’ town but have never given that view much credence. Where we live, and perhaps we come to have more to offer, through involvement in local life and times? I’ve worked in a number of smallish contexts, still do. But it can have a downside. For example, I gave up Family Court work many years ago. The reason for this was that one night after recommending that a father should not have custody of his son, I answered knocks on my home door and there the father was, drunk, red-faced, and waving a shotgun. “You’ve done my life in, you ####, and you’re going to be sorry!” I was. But, over the next what seemed like a long time, I managed to talk him down, ring a mate to get him, on the promise that I wouldn’t call the police. He got collected and I didn’t call the police. Should I have? Where were the boundaries in that situation? I still see him on the street once in a while, both of us much older, and we have that minimal recognition/ acknowledgement eye contact. Another boundary line that can be problematic in a small town is that of maintaining confidentiality of who is/has been a client. What would be best-practice when you’re in your smallish local supermarket, the senior person at checkout is the Treasurer of the local newsletter for which

you’re the Secretary (i.e. you have a relationship), and a shopper is an ex-client you’ve assessed elsewhere? You pass the ex-client in the aisles a few times, and suddenly she’s in front of you shouting “Are you stalking me? Stalker!” Anywhere but here would be a good place. The senior staff person comes to investigate, processes her through checkout, then says “One of yours, eh?” I don’t want to say no (a lie against the obvious, and we are acquainted/have ongoing contact). I think that “I can neither confirm nor deny” or its ilk is really a yes, so I say “We’ve met” and exit as fast as possible, with groceries. Again, what should I have done, where were the boundary lines? All I know at heart is that this is where I live, and I’m going to be involved in my community. And where does that leave the boundary between life and work, if there is one? As an aside: There was one response to the last column and I would very much like to receive feedback including questions or comments to debate. Please email these to [email protected] And from left field: I listen to alternative country music quite a bit. John Prine has a song with people writing in to ‘Dear Abby’. The chorus goes “you are what you are an’ you ain’t what you ain’t…” I would welcome your ‘Dear Abby’ emails.

Who cares? What’s the point – a psychological science communication project and resource for your listening entertainment Dr Sarb Johal – NZPsS Director of Scientific AffairsSarb is a clinical psychologist and health psychologist with over 25 years experience. He completed his research PhD in 1996 at the University of Cardiff, Wales, and his Doctorate in Clinical Psychology at University College London in 2003. He is Associate Professor of Disaster Mental Health at the Joint Centre for Disaster Research, (School of Psychology, Massey University -Wellington Campus / GNS Science). To read more about Sarb click: http://www.psychology.org. nz/about-nzpss/our-people When I was a PhD student, one of the slides me and a few of my fellow students included in every presentation we did said this; ‘Who cares? What’s the point?” This encouraged us to really double down and focus on why anyone should care about the research we were doing.   In this podcast – Who care? What’s the Point? - I want to do the same thing. I track down cutting edge researchers from around the globe publishing thought-provoking, and potentially game changing research about why we behave the way we do.   I will invite them to tell us briefly about their research, and then I prompt them to answer those two questions – who cares,  and what’s the point - focusing on the possible implications of their work. This way, you get to hear stories about how the mind works, without putting your mind to sleep.  The style is punchy and to the point, while giving enough space for the researcher to tell their story about their research, and designed for people interested and curious

about psychology and science, but are non-experts themselves.  Season 1 is already available - and here’s the run down of the shows I have broadcast so far:   1. Dr Matt Williams, New Zealand - What influence could climate change have on human aggression? 2. A/Prof Claire Vallotton, USA - Father’s parenting stress and toddler language development 3. Prof Frank McAndrew, USA - The psychology of creepiness 4. Dr Michael Philipp, NZ - Emoticons and emoji make your face muscles twitch 5. A/Prof Brian Sharpless, USA - What do we know about sleep paralysis? 6. Laurie Parma, UK - Mapping the link between biodiversity and our wellbeing 7. Prof Sam Wineburg, USA - How to tell the difference between fact and fiction on a ‘post-truth’ internet 8. Dr Eva Neely, NZ - What do we know about how food is used to foster social relationships for young women at school? 9. Dr Bertel Teilfeldt Hansen, Denmark - Does turning to clocks back for winter-time lead to higher rates of depression? 10. Dr Toby Mundel, NZ - Is there a link between dehydration and our experience of pain? Season 2 is already underway, launching with one of the keynote speakers in our upcoming Annual conference. You can hear me in conversation with Emeritus Professor and Royal Society Rutherford Medal-winner, Michael Corballis from the University of Auckland – this is already available. You can check the show out at at Libsyn. It’s also on all major platforms, including Stitcher and iTunes So far the show has made it up to #3 in the NZ iTunes Social Sciences chart - I’m hoping to get to #1 and developing a worldwide profile to promote psychology to

a wider audience. If you do enjoy the show – which is free – you can donate the price of a cup of coffee to help cover hosting costs at http://tinyurl.com/wcwtp until March 17. But if you can’t do that, there are other ways to help promote the public understanding of psychology through this podcast. You can: a) Review the show on iTunes. This really helps people find the podcast and make the show more visible in the iTunes environment. b) Share the show with your colleagues and friends. If you do find a show interesting, do please share the show link and a description as to why you liked it and / or why others should listen to it. Share it via Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, or email. c) Use it as a teaching resource to help to deconstruct academic papers, or to challenge and examine methods, results and underpinning theory. d) Use it as a practical resource. Some of the shows may have clinical or practical relevance for you. If they do, please do let me know. e) Contact me and tell me what you liked about the show, or perhaps share some suggestions about what you’d like to see covered. I do hope you find listening to the shows interesting and enjoyable, and that it inspires you to play your part in the promotion and advancement of psychological research and practice.

Health and disability research involving adult participants who are unable to provide informed consent The Health and Disability Commissioner is undertaking a public consultation about health and disability research involving adult participants who are unable to provide informed consent to

participate in the research. The effect of Right 7(4) of the Code of Health and Disability Service Consumers’ Rights (the Code) is that research with participants who cannot give informed consent cannot proceed unless the research is in the best interests of the participants. Recently, it has been argued that New Zealand’s laws regarding non-consensual research are too restrictive, and prohibit studies that could lead to significant improvements in health and disability services. To help the Commissioner determine whether there is a need to change the Code, he has decided to undertake a consultation, during which members of the public will be invited to comment. This consultation will focus on two fundamental questions: are New Zealand’s current laws regarding non-consensual research appropriate and, if not, how should they be amended? People will be asked to consider what factors or criteria they think should be taken into account when considering whether adults who are unable to provide informed consent should be research subjects and who should be the decision maker(s). With the assistance of an expert advisory group, HDC has drafted a consultation document. The consultation document and submission form can be found at www. hdc.org.nz. The consultation document and submission form are also available in easy read format on HDC’s website.

The consultation commenced on Friday 24 February 2017 and submissions will close on Sunday 30 April 2017. The Commissioner will be seeking views from all interested people, including consumers, persons interested in the welfare of people unable to consent for themselves (such as family/whanau), providers and researchers. At the conclusion of the consultation he will review all of the submissions received and will then decide whether to recommend any changes to the current law. Your contribution would be most welcome. Please follow this link to the consultation document: http://www.hdc.org.nz/the-act--code/right-7(4)consultation Julie Ruthe Communications

Mentoring Service for those new to NZ or recently graduated The Society has set up a mentoring database to assist members who are new to NZ or who have recently graduated giving them the opportunity to talk with an established colleague. Mentoring is an informal supportive relationship designed to help new graduates or newcomers to New Zealand to negotiate the broader professional environment. This might for example involve discussing opportunities for career development or offering reflections about what helped you in your own career. A mentoring relationship is normally a collegial relationship without a fee. If you would like to put yourself forward as a mentor on the NZPsS database please contact us at [email protected] and we will provide more information.

Media database

We have established a database with Members we can contact to comment on psychology issues when the media makes contact with the Society and require subject experts. If you are not on our database, but would like to be added, we will send you the questionnaire to complete. Please contact Heike: [email protected]

Student Space From your student rep- Michele Blick The Psychology of Advocacy and the Advocacy of Psychology In last month’s Connections I wrote about psychologists taking on leadership roles for the benefit of the individual, the community, and society. I noted that ‘leadership development is self-development’ (Posner & Kouzes, 1997, p. 8) and there are opportunities to take on leadership positions at all career stages, not just when one becomes a registered psychologist. The experience of taking on leadership roles has served to broaden my psycho-political literacy and remind me that psychologists are active change agents. Principle 4 of the Code of Ethics for Psychologists Working in Aotearoa/New Zealand - Social Justice and Responsibility to Society – reminds psychologists of their responsibilities to the community and to society. This Principle has four Value Statements that are linked to Practice Implications. The Practice Implications guide psychologists to ensure appropriate professional behaviour. The following Practice Implications indicate that psychologists have a responsibility to engage in advocacy: 4.1.3. Psychologists have a responsibility to speak out,

in a manner consistent with the four principles of this Code, when they possess expert knowledge that bears on important societal issues being studied or discussed. 4.1.5. Psychologists have a responsibility to speak out and/ or act in a manner consistent with the four principles of this Code if they believe policies, practices or regulations of the social structures within which psychologists work, seriously ignore or oppose any of the principles of this Code. Lating et al. (2009) define advocacy for psychologists as the process of ‘informing and assisting decision-makers . . . who promote the interests of clients, health care systems, public and welfare issues, and professional psychology’ (p. 106). As with leadership positions, psychologists do not need to wait until they are experienced psychologists before taking on advocacy roles. Cohen, Lee and McIlwraith (2012) differentiate between knowledge transfer, the exchange of knowledge within the profession, and knowledge translation, interpretation of the knowledge to inform the public. The authors argue that psychologists can increase their advocacy role by increasing their focus on knowledge translation and thus influencing public policy for the benefit of society. Advocacy skills can be learned and should be taught in university programmes (Lating et al., 2009). To support effective advocacy, Cohen, Lee and McIlwraith (2012) recommend the following: • Be prepared to demonstrate the value of your work • Provide best available evidence • Focus on collaborative, coordinated and cumulative efforts with other psychologists • Be able to examine issues at the systemic level • Provide clear and succinct communication with a clear take-home message • Understand the needs, policies and procedures of the person or organisation with whom you are meeting • In addition to identifying problems, offer solutions If you haven’t already done so, you may be interested to look at the Position Statements on the NZPsS website. These Position Statements are responses to Government

or other initiatives that have an impact on the health and welfare of New Zealanders. http://www.psychology.org. nz/about-nzpss/position-statements. Furthermore, the Society makes submissions on important professional and social justice issues http://www.psychology.org.nz/aboutnzpss/nzpss-submissions And, as an example of students engaging in advocacy, last year postgraduate students, Helen Van Der Merwe and Joseph Smith, sent an open letter to Peter Dutton, Australian Minister for Immigration and Border Protection regarding the situation on Nauru.

Student Contribution Emma Dear writes about her experience in the Postgraduate Diploma of Psychological Practice programme. Thank you, Emma! The Postgraduate Diploma of Psychological Practice Internship My journey to becoming a registered psychologist is in its final stretch. After many years developing my theoretical underpinnings, I am finally at the stage where I can grow this in combination with practical experience. The Postgraduate Diploma of Psychological Practice (PGDipPP) is offered through Massey University. It is a professional course that, along with internship, is an intensive training experience resulting in registration as a psychologist. Students are from all over Aotearoa and complete their internships in a diverse range of Page 6

organisations. Because of this variability in areas of psychology the course content itself is focused on the Core Competencies for the Practice of Psychology in New Zealand. My internship is at the STOP Adolescent service working with individuals who engage in harmful sexual behaviour. The thing that I really admire about the work STOP does is that, even though the primary goal is assessment and intervention of harmful sexual behaviour, there is a holistic approach in addressing the presenting issues with the adolescent and their family. If there is need in other areas of an individual’s or their family’s life, there is something STOP can do: whether it is to provide intervention to address this area, or connect them with other means of support that can address this need. I am still in the early stages of the PGDipPP and internship (I am actually writing this during an evening of my first block course in Palmerston North) and I am so excited about what is to come, it’s going to be challenging and amazing. This is a truly awesome professional journey towards becoming a psychologist.

Student Survey Thank you to the 46 students who completed the Student Survey. I have compiled the information and it was shared at the Executive Committee annual planning day in February. There were many helpful suggestions about PD topics for students. Some of the suggestions such as access to webinars, information about various placements and workplaces, increased opportunities for students to participate, online forum etc lend themselves to building a strong student section on the website. The information gathered from the survey will be referred to throughout the year to ensure that the needs and interests of students are represented at Executive Committee meetings.

Student Professional Development Webinars are one way to ensure that professional development is accessible for all students. Fiona Howard (Director of Professional Development and Training) and I have planned professional development webinars for students. Preparing for a psychology internship, Ariana and Simon from The University of Auckland speak about their experience, see the members only page and Fiona Howard on Preparing for a supervision relationship If you have ideas for student-related PD, or would like to be part of a webinar, please get in touch ([email protected] gmail.com).

Wellbeing of new dads The Mental Health Foundation notes that while a lot of focus has historically been on the mental health and wellbeing of new mums, new Kiwi research has revealed dads are also affected by antenatal and postnatal depression. Fathers most at risk of depression symptoms either feel stressed or are in poor health, although postnatal depression is also influenced by relationship and social factors. The study concludes it’s important to recognise and treat symptoms among fathers early, and the first step in doing that is increasing awareness among fathers about increased risks. This builds on an earlier New Zealand report, which provides useful insight into some of the characteristics and experiences of women who might be experiencing postnatal depression Mental Health Foundation E-Bulletin 22 February, 2017

CBT with children, young people and families Presented by:

Dr Sandra Dunsmuir To register for this event go to: https://www.eventbrite.co.nz/e/cbt-with-children-young-people-and-familiestickets-31950470718

There has been a growth of interest in psychological health and well-being amongst educational professionals, who increasingly are seeking additional training to equip them to deliver interventions to support distressed young people and their families. Although mental health services are inaccessible for many, there are indications that the majority who receive help do so through the education system. There is developing interest in the use of Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) in school settings in the UK and this has been supported by government initiatives. This presentation is aimed at individuals involved with the delivery of therapeutic interventions in schools in New Zealand. There will be consideration of the scale of the problem in relation to child and adolescent mental health, both in the UK and internationally. The evidence base for CBT with children, young people and their families will be considered, as will facilitators and barriers to delivering therapeutic interventions in schools. It is proposed that CBT with children involves a central emphasis on systemic practice to supplement work with individuals. There are dilemmas about how training may lead to a focus on technical aspects of CBT at the expense of the therapeutic alliance which have led to the development of a new framework to support training through competency based assessments. This will be presented along with opportunities to consider how it could be generalised to a New Zealand context. Furthermore, the use of video within supervision will be discussed. The presentation will conclude with an invitation for whole group discussion about what participants consider to be the core ingredients of CBT child training and explore how creative practice and a focus on evaluation of outcomes can be achieved most effectively. Sandra is Director of the Educational Psychology Group at University College London (UCL) where she leads professional doctorate training in educational psychology. She is also programme Co-Director of the UCL postgraduate courses in Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) for Children and Young People, based at the Anna Freud Centre. As well as being a qualified teacher who has worked in primary and special education, Sandra has extensive experience working as an educational psychologist. She continues to practice on a regular basis with children, their families and teachers in delivering CBT interventions in school and community settings. Her academic research and publications focus on early literacy development and intervention and child and adolescent mental health interventions. Sandra is also interested in teaching and learning at all levels of the educational system and has led national projects to develop learning resources for professional training programmes. Sandra is a Fellow of both the UK Higher Education Academy (FHEA) and the British Dr Sandra Dunsmuir Psychological Society (BPS) and is past chair of the BPS Division of Educational and Child Psychology.

The Institute of Organisational Psychology is proud to host:

Current Perspectives on Leadership presented by:

Dr Joana Kuntz Auckland 26 April, Wellington 27 April, Christchurch 28 April 2017 9.00am - 12.30pm

“The popularity of the prescriptive perspective [of leadership] is primarily due to the influence of positive psychology, which is closely tied to the notion of increasing mental health and happiness (…) Under this influence, leadership research has become vulnerable to ideological assumptions and to a relative neglect of the harsher and less forgiving necessities of leading in real organizations (…) This suggests that scholars should move away from the increasingly popular prescriptive perspective and focus their research and teaching on the reality of leadership, including the trade-offs, ethical dilemmas, messiness, and ambiguity that are part of real organizational life.” (Mumford & Fried, 2014). This workshop is designed for I/O practitioners who wish to develop knowledge and practical understanding of the factors that shape conceptions of leaders, leadership practice, and leadership effectiveness beyond the insights provided by prescriptive values-based leadership theories. Specifically, the workshop is aimed at inviting reflection and discussion around the role of individual characteristics, emotions, expectations, and temporal and contextual factors in leadership. At the end of the workshop, participants will have a better understanding of whether and how views of the leader and of leadership (factual and idealised), embedded in specific contexts, influence their own experience of leadership. The workshop will be informed by and structured on the basis of current leadership perspectives, case study analyses, and participants’ experiences in leadership roles.

Dr. Joana Kuntz Joana is a Senior Lecturer in Industrial and Organisational Psychology at the University of Canterbury (UC), where she teaches Leadership, Motivation, and Change Management courses in the Masters in Applied Psychology (APSY) professional program. Joana gained her PhD from the University of Tennessee, and worked on a number of projects as an Organisational Development Consultant for organisations in Europe and the United States prior to moving to New Zealand in 2009. She is the co-founder of the Employee Resilience Research group, a team of UC-based researchers who work alongside government agencies and private corporations across sectors to facilitate the development of resilience capability. These projects span the development of tailored diagnostic tools, support for strategic planning and implementation, and workshop facilitation on a range of topics, from managing wellbeing in the workplace to leading for resilience development.

Introduction to Working with Clients with Sexual Violence Trauma

presented by Dr Kim McGregor Dunedin 28 April, Nelson 3 May, Rotorua 8 June & Whangarei 28 June 2017 9.30am to 5.00pm Due to the interpersonal betrayal and complex effects associated with child sexual abuse (CSA), working with survivors can be challenging. Making things more difficult, many counselling and other courses do not provide specific training for this issue. These factors often leave counsellors and other professionals lacking confidence when working with survivors of child sexual abuse. This one day workshop will outline the prevalence, dynamics and effects of CSA, useful therapeutic approaches and messages from almost 200 Aotearoa/New Zealand survivors of CSA about what they found helpful and unhelpful in therapy. Most frequent comments from participants of this workshop are about counsellors and other professionals feeling “more confident” in their work and “validated” in their approaches. Workshop Outline Introduction to Working with Survivors of Child Sexual Abuse and Clients’ Experiences 9.30 – 10.45 Context – Development of Abuse-focused Therapy 10.45-11.15 Morning tea 11.15-12.30 Prevalence, Dynamics & Effects of Child Sexual Abuse/Impact on

She is the author of: Warriors of Truth a self-help book for adult survivors of child sexual abuse (1994); the up-dated version Surviving and Moving On (2008); the first set of ACC national therapy guidelines Therapy Guidelines: Adult Survivors of Child Sexual Abuse (2001). She has published several papers including in the Journal of Child Sexual Abuse, and Journal of Trauma and Dissociation. She is the co-author of



the book Powergames (published in NZ & UK 2001). Her doctoral thesis Therapy It’s a Two-Way Thing (2003) explored what a sample of women survivors of child sexual abuse found helpful and unhelpful in therapy. Her post-doctoral thesis explored the health impacts of child sexual abuse and the types of responses survivors wanted from health care professionals. Kim currently runs her own research and therapy company Tiaki Consultants alongside her partner Russell Smith. She also has a part time role as the Chief Victims Advisor to Government. From 2005-2015 Kim was the Executive Director of Rape Prevention Education Whakatu Mauri, 2005-2013 was a founding and executive member of the Te Ohaakii a Hine - National Network Ending Sexual Violence Together, and the Tauiwi Caucus Chair, 2007-2009 was a member of the New Zealand government’s Taskforce for Action on Sexual Violence and was a founding and executive member of Project Restore 2004-2013. Kim has worked alongside Louise Nicholas since 2006 and wrote the Foreword for her book Louise Nicholas My Story.

Nutritional Therapies for Psychological Symptoms Prof JULIA RUCKLIDGE Free for ICP members and ICP students 9th June 2017 in Rotorua & 16th June 2017 in Christchurch 9.30am - 4.00pm Despite the advent of medications and other therapies over the last 50 years, the rates of mental illness have been on the rise rather than a decline. Over the last decade, scientists have been uncovering an uncomfortable truth: What we eat is affecting our mental health. In this workshop, Prof Rucklidge will discuss the data that describe an alarming picture of food choices serving as risk factors to all kinds of psychiatric problems. She will describe dietary patterns and food choices that have been supported by scientific evidence. She will then introduce the recent paradigm shift of using broad based micronutrients, probiotics and other nutrients like omega 3s to treat these challenges, reviewing the hypothesized mechanisms of action and the evidence to date. The talk will challenge our current treatment regime for mental disorders and suggest one alternative course of action. She will discuss practical ways that psychologists could implement this research into every day practice alongside psychological treatments.

Prof Julia Rucklidge Julia is a Professor of Clinical Psychology in the Department of Psychology at the University of Canterbury, Christchurch, New Zealand. Originally from Toronto, Canada, she did her undergraduate training in neurobiology at McGill University in Montreal. She then completed a Master’s and PhD at the University of Calgary in clinical psychology followed by a two year post-doctoral fellowship at the Hospital for Sick Children in Toronto. In 2000, she joined the Department of Psychology where she teaches child psychology in the Clinical Psychology Programme and introduced the topic of Mental Health and Nutrition into the wider psychology programme. Her interests in nutrition and mental illness grew out of her own research showing poor outcomes for children with significant psychiatric illness despite receiving conventional treatments for their conditions. In the last decade, she has been running clinical trials investigating the role of broad-spectrum micronutrients in the expression of mental illness, specifically ADHD, mood disorders, anxiety and stress associated with the Canterbury earthquakes. Julia has over 100 publications, has been featured in the media over 100 times including a cover story for the NZ Listener, and has given over 100 talks across the world on her work on nutrition and mental health. She is currently on the Executive Committee for the International Society of Nutritional Psychiatry Research. She was the recipient of the Ballin Award 2015 from the NZ Psychological Society, an award that recognises notably significant contributions to the development or enhancement of clinical psychology in Aotearoa New Zealand. She was also named in the top 100 Most Influential Women in New Zealand in 2015. Her 2014 TEDx talk https://www.youtube.com/ watch?v=3dqXHHCc5lA has been viewed over 270,000 times. She is passionate about helping people find alternative treatments to medications for their psychiatric symptoms.

The Institute of Organisational Psychology is proud to host:

Creating a Performance Culture presented by:

Dr Gene Johnson Auckland 18 July, 9.00am - 4.30pm Performance Management (PM) is changing; some employers have eliminated performance ratings and others are eager to follow suit…. yet are at risk of simply tinkering with the mechanics and achieving no lasting positive change. Smart workplaces will instead take a strategic perspective of their PM systems and consider how to build a high performance culture. This one-day workshop will help you understand your organisation’s PM focus and how to create a high-performance culture. Workshop objectives: • Understand the underlying value and psychology of PM through goal setting, feedback, and rewards • Clarity on your organisation’s PM intent, followed by greater alignment between business and PM strategies • Greater sense of the supporting role of PM mechanics like ratings and documentation … not the driving role • How to generate meaningful, real-time performance conversations between managers and staff • Link PM with decisions like talent identification, promotions, pay rises, and bonuses • Create a high-performance culture where feedback is offered openly, constructively, and voluntarily in al directions, all the time • Delegates leave with an outline on how to revisit their PM systems back at work Data from the Working Matters survey on PM trends in the UK and elsewhere will be shared, as well as detailed case studies from firms such as Deloitte, Pfizer, Kelly Services, Gap, Cargill, Medtronic, and Accenture. Who Should Attend? Middle to senior-level HR professionals looking to re-examine and redesign their PM processes to support a performance culture. About the presenter Dr Gene Johnson is a chartered psychologist and HCPC registered occupational psychologist with over 25 years’ experience in the corporate, consultancy, government and academic sectors. He previously worked as a lecturer at the University of Auckland, teaching organisational psychology and HR.

Organisation Development and Change presented by:

Dr Maree Roche Auckland 9 October, Wellington 16 October, Christchurch 30 October 2017 9.00am - 12.30pm

It is widely acknowledged that many organisational change initiatives neither result in their intended aims, nor foster sustained change. While there is no official statistic some estimate that up to two-thirds of change projects fail. Increasingly researchers suggest that there are a number of central areas that are underestimated in the change process, including the role of leadership, trust, communication and positive organisational development strategies, that aid pre and post change climates. In this workshop we will discuss advances in organisational development and change. The workshop will examine proactive and positive approaches to change and development. The session will cover leading change, enhancing commitment to change and development, and advances in positive organisational change. The workshop will focus on research developments in these areas, clarify approaches, and aid strategies for change leaders. The workshop is designed for I/O Practitioners who wish to ensure their knowledge in the area of Change Management is up to date and will involve reflection and discussion on current research developments and participants experiences of change and development. Dr. Maree Roche Maree is a Senior Lecturer in Industrial and Organisational Psychology at the University of Waikato. She lectures in Leading Change and Development and Advances in Organisational Psychology. She has a number of years consulting and research experience in the area of leadership, organisational development and positive organisational strategies. Her primary areas of research and consulting include positive leadership, positive organisational psychology and its relationship to organisational development and change.
