Associate Spotlight – Peter Feeney

Peter Feeney is an actor, writer, teacher, and director. Peter is a good friend to HMA, having been involved in several of our media projects. His relationship with HMA began when we produced the extensive “Motivational Interviewing – a Learning Resource ”, which captured motivational interviewing practices from within New Zealand and Australia. Since then, we have worked together on several projects, the most recent being the talk-to-camera segments for the Ake app – our new safety and behaviour support app for men accessing programs to disrupt domestic and family violence.
