Psychology and Indigenous Australians: Foundations of Cultural Competence
Edition 1st edition
Publication Date 1 Jan 2009
OverviewThis book fills an important gap in understanding the psychological impact of colonisation on Indigenous Australians. Using cultural competence as a theoretical framework, it starts with an exploration of the nature of culture and worldviews which permeates and integrates the book. It provides a convincing explanation of how colonisation has affected Indigenous Australians, the role of psychology in this process, and ways forward to redress Indigenous disadvantage. A key emphasis is on 'doing our own work', the essential role of critical reflection in trans-cultural communication.
