New Samoa Tula’i programme

New Samoa Tula’i programme

Samoa Tula’i has been developed to introduce and build on tools and strategies for the positive management of angry feelings. Fundamental concepts and values located within Samoan culture such as respect, service, and identity, have been utilised and incorporated as protective factors underpinning each session’s teachings.

Samoa Tula’i means ‘rise up’ and encompasses the programme’s purpose of assisting participants to learn and engage in more positive ways of managing their anger. Samoa Tula’i helps participants discover the supporting links between cultural identity and emotional regulation.

Participants must be male, aged between 10 to 14 years old, be of Samoan descent, and be presenting with anger management challenges.

This programme has been created with the support of the Auckland Council and in consultation with Samoan elders and practitioners.
