Having quality programme materials to work with enhances facilitator’s on the ground work in behaviour change. Our approach is grounded in evidence-based practice around three key ideas of risk, need, and responsivity. All of us know the tragic outcomes when things go wrong. Our commitment is to provide well thought out, doable and targeted programmes to reduce risk to either others or self.


Why is this important to us

Our work in this space is based upon ensuring whatever we do in the room walks out the door into behaviour change back in the workplace. Skill rehearsal and application are a core aspect of any of our workshops/e-learning course otherwise there is a risk of training scrap/waste.

HMA has had a long association with various Corrective Services, Youth Justice Services and community stopping violence service throughout New Zealand and Australia. Our experience base is built out of the development and design of stopping violence programmes, sex offender interventions and change programmes for adults and young people within justice environments.

Our track record
