This course is offered in external mode. There is a workshop offered for students enrolled in this course. Attendance at the workshop is compulsory.
This course introduces students to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander understandings of the opportunities and challenges to health and wellbeing across the lifespan and the importance of embedding these understandings into health promotion action. It will explore the many contexts of Indigenous Australian lives and the concepts of wellbeing, healing, connection and spirituality to understand the deeply held values of belonging and strength. Students will be introduced to primary health care service models and parallel models of education and social services that are designed to provide comprehensive and holistic care and promote cultural safety and security of clients and families. The course will also examine the principles and application of empowerment and leadership, dialogue, participatory action research, community organisations, inter-sectoral planning and service delivery, advocacy and community development as mechanisms of change.
This course is available to SPHCM and Forensic Mental Health postgraduate students. Other students will need to provide approval from their program authority and the approval of the course convenor to email@example.com
