Teah Carlson

My approach to research is based around Kaupapa Māori theory and pratice, Community Psychology and I also draw from participatory action research theory and methods.

I believe in utilization of valuative research, that is context-sensitive, and promotes social justice, that focuses on enhancing the life circumstances of groups of people, especially those who are oppressed, stigmatised or marginalised.

My research interests include using applied research methods towards developing culturally appropriate programme evaluation processes for Māori (specifically within the areas of Māori special education, Māori education and Māori health).
