In this subject an Indigenist and Human Rights based framework is applied to enable students to contextualise and critically examine the social, historical, cultural and institutional conditions under which social work practice for Indigenous Australians has evolved. Students will examine the discourses through which knowledge about Indigenous Australians is constructed in order to critically analyse the impact of past and current policy on their professional practice. The subject is designed for students and practitioners to apply a relational framework for deeper understandings of cultural competence in the field.
