  • A Theory for Indigenous Australian Health and Human Service Work

    A Theory for Indigenous Australian Health and Human Service Work

    by Lorraine Muller

    Lorraine Muller outlines a theory for professional practice with Indigenous clients in the human services, based on traditional Indigenous knowledge and spirituality. Most people of European background are not aware that they see the world through the lens of the Western tradition, but for Indigenous people, it can seem like a foreign language. Indigenous ways of thinking and working are grounded in many thousands of years of oral tradition, and continue among Australian Aboriginal and Torres Strait Island people today. Lorraine Muller shows that understanding traditional holistic approaches to social...

    Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health - Volume 376

    by Editor: Justin Healey

    Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples live about 10 years less than non-Indigenous Australians. Since 2006, the ‘closing the gap’ campaign has been pursued in collaboration between government and health, welfare and rights agencies to try and close the health and life expectancy gap within a generation.

This book evaluates the progress made towards closing the gap. How can Indigenous outcomes be...

  • Aboriginal Narrative Practice: Honouring Storylines Of Pride, Strength And Creativity

    Aboriginal Narrative Practice: Honouring Storylines Of Pride, Strength And Creativity

    by Dulwich

    This book shares stories of creative inventions by Aboriginal narrative therapists and community workers, including the ‘Shame Mat’, the ‘Language Tree of Life’, ‘Conversations with Lateral Violence’, and ‘Narrative community gatherings’. These significant innovations are expanding the field of narrative practice, not only in relation to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander contexts, but also across cultures and internationally. Significantly, this book also illustrates how narrative practices are being used by Aboriginal communities to decolonise identity stories, to move beyond mental health labels, and to step out of missionary rules and closets of shame. In...
