Course aim

To provide students with an understanding of Aboriginal rights and intercultural frameworks to work effectively within cross-cultural Aboriginal contexts and enable them to apply this knowledge to professional practice.

Students will build on their knowledge of the historical and contemporary relationships between Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal Australians and the impact on the health and wellbeing of Aboriginal Australians and communities today. The topics include understanding and developing strategies to challenge racism in professional practice; understanding white privilege and understanding ones’ own personal values and the impact on professional practice; development of skills to work effectively within cross cultural contexts; to understand and incorporate self-reflective analysis into the ongoing professional practice.
