Thesis topic:
Kiwiburn: The globalization of Burning Man in Aotearoa New Zealand.

My BA major -Social Anthropology – has provided me with a strong understanding of culture, which I find extremely useful living in our multicultural New Zealand. Social anthropology has also given me a solid foundation of understanding of the issues that exist around Te Tiriti o Waitangi, as well as the United Nations universal human rights laws.

My BA minor – Rehabilitation studies – has equipped me with an understanding of case management; person-centered rehabilitation, SBIRTs and IWRPs; the WHO’s classifications, definitions, and directives including the ICF; mental health and disability definitions and classifications; social determinants of mental health; disability and mental health language and human rights.

Rehabilitation studies touched on all forms of rehabilitation: Alcohol and other drug (AOD) dependency and Harm reduction, physical rehabilitation, psychological rehabilitation, social rehabilitation, and vocational rehabilitation. A large portion of my minor has been concentrated on mental health policy and practice, quality of life measures (QoL), harm reduction, brief interventions, and the public health model.
