Psychology, Culture & Indigenous Australians
This course aims to provide you with an understanding of the centrality of culture to human behaviour. You will explore how culture affects a variety of psychological variables, including identity, social functioning, emotions, mental health, as well as other areas within the discipline of psychology.
A specific focus is aimed at Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, and students will learn how the social, cultural, and historical contexts have shaped contemporary life, especially with regards to well-being. You will be introduced to Indigenous Psychologies, and alternate models of health and well-being.
You will be encouraged to explore your own cultural worldviews, and explore how this influences your own behaviour.
