Warwick Pudney is profiled in the autumn 2018 AA magazine, as part of their feature “We can be heros”.
Warwick will be speaking at the NZ Men’s Summit 2018 this Friday 6th April.
His presentation is titled: A short history of the Family Violence Industry and a glimpse of the Future for Working with Intimate Partner Abuse.
Warwick was working as a counsellor in 1996 when he saw a need for a service tailored specifically to men and young boys. He established Man Alive, a non-government organisation in West Auckland offering education, counselling, therapy and advocacy programmes solely for males.
A year later, Warwick set up Big Buddy, a mentoring programme for boys without fathers or positive male role models in their lives.
Warwick has established a post-graduate violence and trauma programme at Auckland’s AUT University which builds theory, awareness and skills for social workers, counsellors and police to solve problems around violence and assist healing from trauma.
