This subject provides students with foundational knowledge in Indigenous Australian Studies from which to build their discipline-specific understandings and skills and ability to work effectively in Indigenous contexts. It is constructed within a cultural competence pedagogical framework which enhances the development of student graduate attributes and prepares students for active citizenship and engagement in reconciliation and the achievement of social justice for Indigenous Australians. Students will be exposed to a body of information critiquing the meta-paradigm and methodologies of the discipline of psychology and its historical involvement with Indigenous Australians, and the implications of this for contemporary professional practice.
