Practice framework knowledge and evidence base

Learn about the 8 elements for effective practice. These elements represent our core practice beliefs, behaviours and approaches.

What is the knowledge and evidence base

The Oranga Tamariki Practice Framework includes a knowledge and evidence base.

It consists of:

  • 8 elements for effective practice
    The 8 elements represent our core practice beliefs, behaviours and approaches and these are woven throughout our practice standards, so they will be familiar to you.
  • selected readings, website links and resources
    These contain research, evidence and resources which provide the key evidence for the 8 elements for effective practice.

All 8 elements are underpinned by broader cross-sector evidence and research including systems theory, indigenous theories, trauma-informed practice and relational and restorative theories for practice.
