Research output: Book/ReportBookEducationpeer-review


"Aboriginal fields of practice" presents a ground-breaking collection of chapters written by Aboriginal authors. Informed by current field expertise, it provides an innovative teaching resource that recognizes and appreciates Aboriginal ways of knowing, being and doing, and demonstrates a commitment to decolonizing and reconciliation within social work and Allied Health. Aboriginal Fields of Practice explores many areas that have not been discussed before in contemporary Australia, including discussion of practice in criminal justice and an understanding of rural and remote practice. The book is arranged in three parts, with chapters addressing contemporary issues related to the oppression, marginalisation and needs of Aboriginal peoples.
- Part 1 focuses on working with particular interest according to the requirements of different groups such as children, older people and LGBTIQ+ people.
- Part 2 discusses current preoccupations within different practice settings, including health care, child protection and criminal justice
- Part 3 looks at niche fields and emerging trends within contemporary practice, from rural and remote social work to resilience-based therapeutic interventions.

This valuable text will provide an excellent grounding for students and practitioners working with Aboriginal peoples.
