Major achievements for the Australian Indigenous Psychologists Association: It's not a black or white issue

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


With mounting evidence that Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples are at high risk for the development of mental health problems, there is clearly potential for psychologists to contribute their expertise in this area. However, there are some important - sometimes contentious - practice issues and competencies that must be resolved when non-Aboriginal psychologists work with Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander people. As a result, psychologists are often uncertain and anxious about becoming engaged in this work.
