This textbook features a groundbreaking collection of chapters co-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. This valuable text will provide an excellent grounding for students and practitioners working with Aboriginal peoples.
