Understanding Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities, and how best to work with them, is an essential component of all Social Work programmes in Australia as courses commit to working respectfully for increased social justice, health and wellbeing for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. This core textbook is written specifically for the Australian market and has enjoyed strong sales but now requires updating to ensure we maintain and grow sales.
Our Voices was the first social work book published in Australia that has an all Aboriginal Australian editorial group and it explores important contemporary issues such as cultural supervision, working with communities, understanding trauma, collaboration and relationship building. It provides valuable insights into how social work practice can be developed, taught and practiced in ways that are culturally safe and competent.
