About this part

To understand how care arrangements may impact on Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, we must first understand the history and lived experience. We need to understand and respect Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures.

Key concepts to be aware of include:

  • over representation
  • intergenerational trauma
  • cultural differences in child-rearing practices
  • cultural safety
  • connection to country
  • racism

For detailed information on Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures read the practice kit Safe care and connection.
