Abstract

This book uses a theoretical model to explore the position of Indigenous Australians in relation to health science research. It provides a contemporary understanding of Indigenous affairs, particularly in regards to counselling, community development, and policy. The book is comprised of eight chapters, covering the following topic areas:

  • Not another native informant
  • Reconstructing gender and 'race' relations after the frontier
  • Consciousness, abjection and the colonised subject
  • Pain as a catalyst for change, for working for change
  • 'Changing the terms of the conversation' and moving from "a survival mentality to a living mentality"
  • Borderlands: what is happening there?
  • Land and spirit: old ways of being
  • Conclusion: abjection denies a future of shared joys.
