  • Refugee Students’ Psychological Wellbeing and Experiences in the
           Australian Education System: A Mixed-methods Investigation
    • Authors: Tahereh Ziaian; Helena Anstiss, Teresa Puvimanasinghe, Emily Miller
      Abstract: ObjectivesRefugee children and adolescents are widely acknowledged to experience multiple disadvantages that place them at increased risk of poor education and employment outcomes, which in turn affect their mental health and well-being. The aim of this study is to explore the interconnection between their educational and schooling experiences, and mental health outcomes.MethodWe used a mixed methods approach. Participants included a multiethnic sample of 495 South Australian refugee children (4–12 years) and adolescents (13–17 years) from Africa, the Middle East, South Asia, and former Yugoslavia. Mental health outcomes were assessed using the Children's Depression Inventory (CDI) and the Strengths and Difficulties Questionnaire (SDQ). Thirteen focus groups with 85 refugee adolescents aged 13–17 years explored their educational experiences and well-being.ResultsQuantitative analysis revealed differences between teacher, parent, and adolescent self-ratings, with teachers identifying a higher proportion of refugee students with mental health problems than parents or adolescents. The focus groups identified inadequate educational support, parental pressure to excel, heavy family and household responsibilities, supporting psychologically distressed parents, and school based discrimination and racism as barriers to their educational progress. Qualitative results also afforded plausible explanations for the discrepancy between teacher-ratings with parent- and adolescent self-ratings of the mental health.ConclusionAnalysis of both quantitative and qualitative findings provides insight into the interconnection between educational and schooling experiences of young refugees and their mental health. Avenues for further research include developing and evaluating more holistic models of education to address the interrelated education and mental health needs of refugee youth.

  • Factor Analysis and Psychometric Validation of the Body Image Disturbance
           Questionnaire in an Australian Undergraduate Sample
    • Authors: James Collison; Justin Mahlberg
      Abstract: ObjectiveBody image disturbance encompasses various cognitive and behavioural states originating from a distressing, negative evaluation of one's appearance. It is broader than negative body image, comprising not only dissatisfaction but also distress and dysfunction, and is a core feature of body dysmorphic disorder (BDD). This study had two broad aims: to establish normative values for body image disturbance within an Australian population and to examine the factor structure and psychometric properties of the Body Image Disturbance Questionnaire (BIDQ).MethodAustralian undergraduate students (N = 950, 744 female) from Western Sydney completed the BIDQ, along with measures of clinical psychopathology, self-esteem, and functional impairment.ResultsThe BIDQ displayed good internal consistency and predictable concurrent relationships with measures of depression, anxiety, stress, self-esteem, and functional impairment. It also yielded a single latent construct, while higher scores were noted among participants who screened positively for BDD.ConclusionsBIDQ scores for this sample differ to those originally reported, which may reflect sample differences or cultural variation. These values provide a more accurate and reliable guide for clinicians using the BIDQ in Australia than previously available. Overall, the BIDQ demonstrates good psychometric efficacy in an undergraduate sample, although future research should validate the measure among wider clinical and community populations.

  • Identification of a Suitable Short-form of the UCLA-Loneliness Scale
    • Authors: Brad Elphinstone
      Abstract: ObjectiveThe current study aimed to identify the most statistically appropriate short-form of the UCLA-Loneliness Scale (LS). This was intended to provide researchers and practitioners with a measure that reduces the burden on participants and measures a unidimensional model of loneliness in accordance with the theory proposed by Russell.MethodEight short-forms of the UCLA-LS were assessed in two undergraduate samples (N = 552, 206). Students were from a metropolitan Australian university and completed online surveys.ResultsOne-, two-, and three-factor (i.e., an overall loneliness factor, and two method factors representing positively and negatively scored items) models of the original 20-item UCLA-LS provided poor model fit. One 10-item short-form provided adequate model fit in both samples. However, all configurations of the measure were generally internally consistent and displayed convergent validity. Greater loneliness was significantly associated with reduced social wellbeing, positive affect, life satisfaction, vitality, and psychological wellbeing, and increased negative affect.ConclusionsIt is recommended that a 10-item short-form is used in future applications. This short-form displayed similar internal consistency and convergent validity as the 20-item measure despite being half as long, and provided superior model fit.

  • Rural and Remote General Practitioners’ Perceptions of Psychologists
    • Authors: Carly Rose Sutherland; Anna Chur-Hansen, Helen Winefield
      Abstract: ObjectiveAs the first professional contact for most Australians with mental health concerns, general practitioners (GPs) are often considered the “gateway” to accessing psychologists. Understanding GPs’ views of psychologists is therefore of great importance to the profession. GPs serve a particularly important role in mental health in rural and remote areas given the lack of other services; however there has been limited research investigating the relationship between psychologists and GPs in rural areas. This study aimed to investigate rural GPs’ perceptions of rural psychologists.MethodSemi-structured qualitative telephone and in-person interviews were conducted with 13 GPs working in rural and remote South Australia. Data were analysed thematically.ResultsThree main themes were identified: Psychologists are useful/helpful; working with psychologists can be challenging; and psychologists are not well understood. Rural GPs held mostly positive views about psychologists and their value in providing professional support and reducing GP workloads. However, GPs’ understanding of psychologists’ training and expertise varied considerably, with most reporting gaps in their knowledge. Challenges included limited access to psychologists and communication barriers. Communication was considered to be enhanced by co-locating psychology services within the GP practice, which was also considered to be a valuable educational opportunity for GPs.ConclusionWhile rural GPs held largely positive views of psychologists, they may require further support in understanding what psychologists can offer and promoting psychology to their patients. Results may assist in improving communication between rural psychologists and GPs and inform strategies to improve rural GPs’ understanding of psychologists’ skills and training.

  • Influences on Psychological Well-Being and Ill-Being in Older Women
    • Authors: Wee Hong Tan; Jeanie Sheffield, Soo Keat Khoo, Gerard Byrne, Nancy A. Pachana
      Abstract: ObjectivesTo examine factors contributing to psychological well-being and ill-being in older Australian women.MethodsA multi-variable model examining personality traits, life events, medical diagnoses, and cognitive appraisal was tested on 296 women (mean age = 69.13, standard deviation = 10.20) from the Longitudinal Assessment of Women Study using a cross-sectional design.ResultsNeuroticism, optimism, and extraversion were associated with both well-being and ill-being, but these relationships were partially mediated by cognitive appraisal. The relationship between number of life events and ill-being was fully mediated by cognitive appraisal, while the relationship between number of life events and well-being was partially mediated by cognitive appraisal. The number of medical diagnoses directly predicted well-being.ConclusionsThe supported model suggests that individual and public-health interventions targeting personality traits, cognitive appraisal, and life events might have potential to improve well-being and reduce ill-being as individuals age.

  • Motivation to the Past, Present, and Future: Time Orientation and
           Disorientation before Therapy
    • Authors: Terence V Bowles
      Abstract: ObjectivesThe aim of this research was to confirm the structure of time orientation and affects associated with the past, present, and future and self-esteem of those beginning therapy and a comparison group.MethodResponses from clinical respondents (n = 217; mean age 33 years) and non-clinical respondent (n = 196; mean age 34 years) were used to analyse the structure of the measures. A matched group method was used to investigate group differences based on clinical status and gender of the respondent.ResultsThe measures of time orientation and measures of affects associated with the past, present, and future were well structured and provide evidence of a balanced view in which an orientation to each time dimension is important. Results showed that the therapeutic group was less future, present, and past oriented. Further, the therapeutic group was consistently and significantly higher on negative affect and lower on positive affect and self-esteem than the comparison group. The findings are discussed in reference to therapeutic and theoretical implications.ConclusionsThe concept of time orientation and the associated affects is of substantial interest to therapeutic interventions and the findings provide some evidence of the utility of attending to the strength of orientation to the three time dimensions and the dependency between them over their apparent separateness. The measures have utility in providing insights that inform the focus of therapy.

  • Non-Work Time Activities Predicting Teachers’ Work-Related Fatigue and
           Engagement: An Effort-Recovery Approach
    • Authors: Adam Garrick; Anita S Mak, Stuart Cathcart, Peter C Winwood, Arnold B Bakker, Kurt Lushington
      Abstract: ObjectiveDrawing on the effort-recovery model of work stress, this study examined the effects of school teachers’ sleep quality and time spent in various non-work time activities on work-related stress and motivational outcomes. We proposed that sleep quality and different types of non-work time activities would have differential effects on levels of work-related fatigue and engagement.MethodNine hundred and sixty Australian school teachers (mean age 46 years, 707 females, 237 males) completed a cross-sectional online survey measuring sleep quality, time spent in non-work time activities, and work-related fatigue and engagement.ResultsTeachers spent relatively higher amounts of time on work-related activities outside of formal work hours, and lower amounts of time on health-promoting activities such as exercise. Multiple regression analyses indicated that sleep quality was related to reduced fatigue and increased engagement, while time spent socialising outside of work was related to reduced fatigue. Time spent on work-related tasks outside of working hours was related to both increased fatigue and engagement. Other activities, including passive activity, exercise, and hobbies, were not significantly related to either outcome.ConclusionsWe discuss the implications of our findings in relation to theories and research in work stress, particularly in the context of where priorities should be placed for self-care interventions to facilitate teachers’ day-to-day recovery from work demands.

  • Cultural Competence in Clinical Psychology Training: A Qualitative
           Investigation of Student and Academic Experiences
    • Authors: Lennie R.C. Geerlings; Claire L. Thompson, Ruth Bouma, Russell Hawkins
      Abstract: ObjectiveRecent years have seen a marked increase in attention to cultural competence in clinical psychology practice in Australia. While the body of literature on the need for cultural competence is expanding, this is the first study that analyses how cross-cultural training and practice is experienced and related to standardised models of cultural competence.MethodTwelve participants (8 students and 4 academics; 9 females and 3 males, ages 22–57) in two Australian universities were interviewed on their experiences with cultural competence during clinical psychology training. Each semi-structured interview took about 30 min and focused on identifying the training experiences and needs for cultural competence.ResultsInterpretative Phenomenological Analysis of the transcripts delivered three master themes: experiences of culture, strategies for culturally competent practice, and experiences of cultural competence development.ConclusionsStudents and academics experienced a “western” bias in training, and consequently adopted a variety of strategies to adapt their practice with culturally non-western clients. These findings draw attention to the need for structured cultural competence development in professional training programs.

  • Treatment of Pathological Worry in Children With Acceptance-Based
           Behavioural Therapy and a Multisensory Learning Aide: A Pilot Study
    • Authors: Richard Meagher; Danuta Chessor, Vincent Jacques Fogliati
      Abstract: ObjectiveThe primary objective of this study was to provide an initial test of the efficacy of acceptance-based behavioural therapy in reducing pathological worry and anxious symptomology in children. A secondary objective was to examine the benefit of supplementing standard acceptance-based behavioural therapy with a multisensory learning aide (MSA). The MSA provides kinaesthetic, tactile, and visual stimuli to facilitate children's understanding of acceptance-based behavioural therapy principles and the development of acceptance- and mindfulness-based skills.MethodTwo variations of an acceptance-based behavioural therapy treatment were administered over 8 weeks to children aged 7–11 years: a standard acceptance-based behavioural therapy treatment condition, and a condition that supplemented acceptance-based behavioural therapy with a novel MSA. Anxious symptomology and pathological worry were measured at pre-treatment and post-treatment. A program evaluation questionnaire was also administered to parents at post-treatment.ResultsResults demonstrated that children in the acceptance-based behavioural therapy with a novel MSA condition reported significant reductions in worry and anxious symptomology at post-treatment. Furthermore, parents in this condition reported the model to be effective in helping their children understand concepts of acceptance, defusion, and meta-cognition.ConclusionsThe present study found that acceptance-based behavioural therapy, adapted for children and supplemented with a novel multisensory aide designed specifically to enhance treatment, led to reductions in child-reported worry and parent-reported anxiety. Parental feedback suggested that the multisensory aide was highly acceptable, and that it may have facilitated children's understanding of abstract therapeutic principles.

  • Relationships between Reading Ability and Child Mental Health: Moderating
           Effects of Self-Esteem
    • Authors: Mark E. Boyes; Bree Tebbutt, Kathryn A. Preece, Nicholas A. Badcock
      Abstract: ObjectiveChildren with reading difficulties are at elevated risk for externalising (e.g., conduct disorder) and internalising (e.g., anxiety and depression) mental health problems. Reading ability is also negatively associated with self-esteem, a consistent predictor of child and adolescent mental health more broadly. This study examined whether self-esteem moderated and/or mediated relationships between reading ability and mental health.MethodOne hundred and seventeen children (7–12 years) completed standardised reading assessments (Castles and Coltheart Test 2; CC2) and self-report measures of mental health (Strengths and Difficulties Questionnaire; SDQ) and self-esteem (Coopersmith Self-esteem Inventory). Non-verbal intelligence (IQ) was measured using the block design and matrix reasoning subscales of the Wechsler Abbreviated Scale of Intelligence, and was controlled for in all multivariate analyses.ResultsReading ability was negatively associated with internalising symptoms. This relationship was not moderated by self-esteem. Poor readers also reported more total difficulties and externalising symptoms, but only at low levels of self-esteem. There was no evidence that self-esteem mediated relationships between reading ability and mental health.ConclusionsPoor reading was associated with internalising symptoms. Self-esteem moderated the impact of reading ability on total difficulties and externalising symptoms, with high self-esteem buffering against negative impacts of poor reading. However, the reliability of the self-esteem scale used in the study was poor and findings need replication using a reliable and valid self-esteem measure, as well as other measures of child mental health. If replicated, future research should examine whether interventions aiming to improve self-esteem can reduce the risk of externalising problems in children with reading difficulties.

  • Does the Dark Triad Predict Prejudice?: The Role of Machiavellianism,
           Psychopathy, and Narcissism in Explaining Negativity Toward Asylum Seekers

      Abstract: ObjectivePersonality has a long history of being linked to attitudes toward various social groups, but little research has explored how darker aspects of personality might contribute to social attitudes. In this article, we explore the role of the ominous personality traits in the Dark Triad (narcissism, Machiavellianism, and psychopathy) in accounting for prejudice, in the specific case of antipathy toward asylum seekers.MethodA community sample of 173 Australians (Mage = 23.37 years, SD = 7.88; 74% females) responded to measures of classical and modern explicit attitudes and implicit attitudes toward this group. This study used a correlational research design.ResultsThe sample reported neutral explicit attitudes (both classical and modern) but implicit attitudes were negative. Classical attitudes were less negative than modern attitudes. Multiple hierarchical regression analyses revealed political conservatism and psychopathy predicted modern explicit attitudes while political conservatism and Machiavellianism predicted classical attitudes. Narcissism was unrelated to all attitudes, and none of the Dark Triad personality traits were related to implicit attitudes.ConclusionThe implications of the relationships between sub-clinical personality traits and social attitudes are discussed in reference to intervening with punitive attitudes towards this vulnerable social group. This article presents new evidence that Machiavellianism is related to classic attitudes, and provides more evidence that psychopathy is related to modern attitudes. Finally, this article adds to the scarce literature on implicit attitudes towards asylum seekers.

  • Closing the Gap in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Youth Suicide: A
           Social–Emotional Wellbeing Service Innovation Project
    • Authors: Delaney Michael Skerrett; Mandy Gibson, Leilani Darwin, Suzie Lewis, Rahm Rallah, Diego De Leo
      Abstract: ObjectiveThe suicide rate for Queensland's Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander young people is over four times that of their non-Indigenous counterparts, with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children (under 15) dying by suicide at 12 times the non-Indigenous rate. There is a need for interventions that are culturally validated and community-endorsed. The aim of this article is to describe the design and implementation of a group-based intervention, as well to report the results of the various qualitative and quantitative measures.MethodSixty-one Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander persons aged 11–21 years completed a social–emotional wellbeing (SEWB) program at headspace Inala. Data were available through to 2-month follow-up for 49 participants. The program was designed and delivered in collaboration with the local Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community.ResultsThere was a statistically significant decrease in suicidal ideation experienced by the participants after completing the program. Qualitative measures indicated that participants experienced improved understanding of holistic health and an increased number of coping skills.ConclusionsNot only was this the first evaluated intervention in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander youth to ever report a decrease in individual suicidality, the program was carefully designed and implemented in consultation with community in a culturally sensitive manner and thus provides an invaluable framework for future SEWB work.

  • Dysmorphic Appearance Concern and Hazardous Alcohol Use in University
           Students: The Mediating Role of Alcohol Expectancies
    • Authors: Mitchell Cunningham; Lexine Stapinski, Scott Griffiths, Andrew Baillie
      Abstract: ObjectiveA paucity of research has examined the link between body image concerns and alcohol use in university students. Individuals with elevated body image concerns may use alcohol due to the endorsement of expectancies that alcohol will reduce discomfort deriving from appearance concerns. Therefore, the aim of this study was to examine the how the link between body image concerns (i.e., dysmorphic appearance concerns) and hazardous alcohol use may be accounted for by alcohol-related expectancies.MethodParticipants were 138 undergraduates (74% male) who completed an online survey that gauged dysmorphic appearance concern, alcohol use, and alcohol-related expectancies.ResultsResults not only showed a link between dysmorphic appearance concern and hazardous alcohol use, but that the link between the constructs was partially mediated by positive alcohol expectancies. Moreover, individuals with elevated dysmorphic appearance concern appeared to use alcohol for their perceived sexual facilitation benefits and providing “liquid courage.”ConclusionsTherapies aimed at reducing hazardous alcohol use may benefit from targeting positive alcohol expectancies in young adults with elevated dysmorphic appearance concern.

  • A Systematic Review: Non-Suicidal Self-injury in Australia and New
           Zealand's Indigenous Populations
    • Authors: Emma B. Black; Steve Kisely
      Abstract: ObjectiveTo undertake a systematic review of non-suicidal self-injury (NSSI) prevalence, patterns, functions, and behavioural correlates for the Indigenous populations of Australia (Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders) and New Zealand (NZ; Maori).MethodWe searched the following electronic databases: PubMed, MedLine, Scopus, Web of Science, ScienceDirect, PsycInfo, and PsycArticles, CINAHL, and the Informit Health and Indigenous Peoples collections. Studies were included for review if they were published within the last 25 years and reported on NSSI in Australia and NZ's Indigenous populations.ResultsSeven studies were included, six of which came from Australia. The prevalence of NSSI in Australia ranged from 0.9% up to 22.50%; statistics varied by the different samples, types of prevalence, and relationship to alcohol. Several studies found that Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples had higher rates of NSSI than other Australians, but that this was not significantly higher. Two studies indicated that NSSI was linked to alcohol use, incarceration, and a younger age. The one NZ study was of injury and not specifically NSSI.ConclusionsFindings are limited due to a small pool of literature. Cultural variations in NSSI presentation should be considered when working with Indigenous populations. Further research is required to help determine what cultural variations may exist.

  • Sports Media Representations of Concussions in the National Rugby League
    • Authors: Megan Kennard; Tracey McLellan, Audrey McKinlay
      Abstract: ObjectiveConcussion is poorly understood by the general public who are regularly exposed to this type of injury via televised sports such as the National Rugby League (NRL). This study investigated media representations of concussion by examining the terminology used by the commentators during the 2010 and 2011 NRL seasons.MethodData was obtained through a surveillance design where commentary statements were recorded for each observable concussion.ResultsDramatic terminology was the most frequently used followed by entertaining and humorous terminology. Commentators often portrayed the way the incident had occurred and the player's reaction to being concussed. However, information about a player sustaining an injury that required medical attention was rarely conveyed.ConclusionMedia tend to trivialise concussion and this may have an impact on the public's knowledge of, and influence their response to, concussion.

  • The Role of Social Support, Being Present, and Self-kindness in University
           Student Psychological Distress
    • Authors: Helen M. Stallman; Jeneva L. Ohan, Belinda Chiera
      Abstract: ObjectiveSelf-kindness, which is thought to be part of self-compassion, has the potential to contribute to mental health, as well as serve as a focus for interventions. However, little attention has been given to the potential role of self-kindness specifically, especially in the context of mindful presence and available social support, in buffering distress.MethodStructural equation modelling was used to test a theoretically based model of how these factors relate to each other and psychological distress. Participants were 592 Australian university students.ResultsResults confirmed our hypotheses, showing that: (a) receiving social support is important to the capacity for self-kindness both directly and indirectly through the ability to “be present,” and (b) the relationship between social support and psychological distress is partially mediated by the practices of self-kindness and being present. The model of social support, being present, and self-kindness accounted for half the variance in psychological distress. With the addition of stressors, a regression model explained a total of 62% of the variance.ConclusionsThese findings have implications for understanding the construct of self-kindness and its role in the development of interventions to improve student success.

  • Identifying and Addressing Barriers to Treatment Decision-making in
           Bipolar II Disorder: Clinicians’ Perspective
    • Authors: Alana Fisher; Vijaya Manicavasagar, Louise Sharpe, Rebekah Laidsaar-Powell, Ilona Juraskova
      Abstract: ObjectiveTreatment decision-making in bipolar II disorder is complex due to limited evidence on treatment efficacy and potentially burdensome side-effects of options. Thus, involving patients and negotiating treatment options with them is necessary to ensure that final treatment decisions balance both clinician and patient preferences. This study qualitatively explored clinician views on (a) effective treatment decision-making, unmet patient needs for (b) decision-support and (c) information.MethodQualitative semi-structured interviews with 20 practising clinicians (n = 10 clinical psychologists, n = 6 general practitioners, n = 4 psychiatrists) with experience treating adult outpatients with bipolar II disorder were conducted. Interviews were audiotaped, transcribed verbatim and analysed thematically using framework methods. Self-report professional experience, and clinician preferences for patient decision-making involvement were also assessed.ResultsQualitative analyses yielded two inter-related themes: (a) challenges and barriers to decision-making and (b) facilitators of clinician decision-making. Symptom severity, negative family attitudes, system-based factors, and information gaps were thought to pose challenges to decision-making. By contrast, decision-making was supported by patient information, family involvement and patient-centredness, and a strong therapeutic relationship. Clinician views varied depending on their professional background (medical vs clinical psychologist), patient involvement preferences, and whether the clinician was a bipolar specialist.ConclusionsWhilst clinicians uniformly recognise the importance of involving patients in informed treatment decision-making, active patient participation is hampered by unmet informational and decision-support needs. Current findings inform a number of bipolar II disorder-specific, clinician-endorsed strategies for facilitating patient decision-making, which can inform the development of targeted patient decision-support resources for use in this setting.

  • An Investigation of Supervisory Practices to Develop Relational and
           Reflective Competence in Psychologists
    • Authors: Fiona L. Calvert; Trevor P. Crowe, Brin F. S. Grenyer
      Abstract: BackgroundCompetency-based models of supervision acknowledge relationship, including reflective capacity, as foundational in professional psychology. However, current understandings of supervisory practices aimed at developing this competency are limited.ObjectiveThis study aimed to explore the practices used in supervision for the development of supervisee relational competence. These practices were also examined with reference to supervisor/supervisee theoretical orientation, as well as the nature of the supervisory relationship (including working alliance, real relationship, and attention to parallel process in supervision).MethodA total of 45 supervisees and 41 supervisors participated in an online survey in which they rated the perceived usefulness and actual use of various supervisory interventions for the development of relational competence. Participants also provided qualitative responses regarding the methods used to develop relationship competence. Finally, respondents completed measures of supervisory working alliance, real relationship, and attention to parallel process in supervision.ResultsRatings of supervisory methods and qualitative responses revealed a rich variety of interventions currently being utilised in enhancing supervisee relationship competence. Ratings of perceived usefulness and actual use of various supervisory interventions were not related to theoretical orientation. Finally, correlational analyses revealed multiple associations between the nature of the supervisory relationship and perceived usefulness and actual use of supervisory interventions for enhancing relational competence.ConclusionThe results of this study have important implications for the practice of supervision and guiding directions of future research.

      Abstract: Closing the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander mental health gap is an urgent national priority. This commentary provides both an overview of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander social and emotional well being and mental health and some of the promising initiatives for restoring wellbeing. Solutions for addressing Aboriginal and Torres Strait islander mental health issues require a “best of both worlds” approach which acknowledges the impact of social and cultural determinants on Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander wellbeing.

  • The Australian Psychological Society's Apology to Aboriginal and Torres
           Strait Islander People
    • Authors: Timothy A Carey; Pat Dudgeon, Sabine W Hammond, Tanja Hirvonen, Michael Kyrios, Louise Roufeil, Peter Smith
      Pages: 261 - 267
      Abstract: The gap between Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander and non-Indigenous health, education, mental health, and social and emotional wellbeing remains a major concern. Bridging these gaps and working in culturally safe and responsive ways with people of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander descent presents considerable challenges, including for the discipline and profession of psychology. At the Australian Psychological Society's (APS) inaugural congress in September 2016, the APS issued an Apology to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. The apology was a formal acknowledgment of the role of the discipline and profession of psychology in failing to listen and show respect to Indigenous Australians. The apology was also a commitment to change. This paper provides the background and context to, and motivation for, the apology. The APS received highly positive reactions to the apology across Australia and internationally. However, further change and work needs to be undertaken as the challenge for the discipline and profession now is to demonstrate a commitment to the apology by supporting and engaging in culturally safe practices.

    • Authors: Lynore Geia; Luke Pearson, Melissa Sweet
      Pages: 280 - 287
      Abstract: ObjectiveTo explore why and how Twitter engagement may be useful for health professionals with an interest in decolonising practice and for supporting the social and emotional wellbeing (SEWB) of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.MethodA narrative methodology is used to explore innovative uses of Twitter with relevance to the SEWB of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. The authors present their personal and professional stories of engagement with Twitter as three inter-related case studies.ResultsThematic analysis of these narratives found that Twitter is enabling Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people to share their stories and experiences, and to develop new connections and collaborations for change. It provides a platform for reflexivity, reciprocity, relationship-building, strengths-based learning and practice, advocacy, and other elements of decolonising practice.ConclusionEngaging with Twitter offers psychologists and other health professionals an opportunity for improving their understanding of the complexity of factors affecting the SEWB of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, and for developing their professional practice into new spheres.

  • Addressing the Mental Health Gap in Working with Indigenous Youth: Some
           Considerations for Non-Indigenous Psychologists Working with Indigenous
    • Authors: Stephen Ralph; Kelleigh Ryan
      Pages: 288 - 298
      Abstract: It has long been recognised that Indigenous youth between the ages of 15–24 years are one of the most vulnerable and disadvantaged groups in contemporary Australian society. There is a plethora of available reports and statistical information gathered over the past 20 years that highlights the perilous situation of Indigenous youth and the specific challenges that confront this group. This article provides a review of the state of our knowledge regarding Indigenous youth with a particular focus upon their mental health needs and their broader social and emotional well-being. This article examines the relevance and potential effectiveness of focused psychological strategies as applied under the Access to Allied Psychological Services program in addressing the needs of Indigenous youth. There is a clear and important role for non-Indigenous Psychologists to play in closing the mental health gap, but practitioners need to have at least an adequate degree of cultural competence in order to engage with Indigenous young people, and be able to deliver psychological interventions that are culturally appropriate and safe and consistent with Indigenous world views. This article provides some guidance for non-Indigenous Psychologists in working with Indigenous youth.

  • Using Culturally Appropriate Approaches to the Development of KidsMatter
           Resources to Support the Social and Emotional Wellbeing of Aboriginal
    • Authors: Samantha Smith; Lyn O'Grady, Carmen Cubillo, Sarah Cavanagh
      Pages: 299 - 305
      Abstract: ObjectiveKidsMatter identified a need for resources to support the social and emotional wellbeing of Aboriginal children. This case study describes the intercultural processes underpinning the development of the KidsMatter Aboriginal Project.MethodThe project was guided by the principles of participatory action, narrative therapy, and critically reflective practice and aimed to define Aboriginal social and emotional wellbeing from the perspective of Aboriginal peoples. Workshops were held with Aboriginal cultural consultants across two phases. The consultants worked collaboratively with the project team to develop a series of animations and supporting resources for Aboriginal families, and early childhood and primary school educators. Workshop outcomes and themes were provided to Indigenous psychologists for comment and comparison with the available literature. Separate consultations were held with school, early childhood, and health and community professionals, and Aboriginal family group members to consider use of the resources in professional settings.ResultsThe project resulted in the development of a suite of culturally relevant and professional learning tools to support the social and emotional wellbeing of Aboriginal children. The tools are designed for use by Aboriginal families, schools, early childhood, and health and community services and are reflective of key themes raised by relevant literature and community representatives.ConclusionThe principles of participatory action, narrative therapy, and critically reflective practice can guide culturally safe practice and project outcomes when working with Aboriginal social and emotional wellbeing. The combination of first-hand community knowledge and evidence-based literature assists align projects with National Practice Standards in Mental Health.

  • Keeping on Country: Understanding and Responding to Crime and Recidivism
           in Remote Indigenous Communities
    • Authors: Glenn Dawes; Andrea Davidson, Edward Walden, Sarah Isaacs
      Pages: 306 - 315
      Abstract: ObjectivesThe objectives of this qualitative study were to examine local perspectives on the causes of crime and recidivism in two remote Indigenous communities, and provide a series of recommendations regarding more effective responses that could be implemented by way of justice reinvestment.MethodThis study was coordinated by a multi-disciplinary research team that actively engaged the community in every stage of the research process, through a culturally and ecologically informed participatory action research design. Data was gathered through semi-structured individual and focus group interviews with three cohorts: (a) offenders who had been incarcerated on at least one occasion (n = 20); (b) offenders’ families (n = 20); and, (c) service providers working with offenders (n = 20). Data was also gathered through over 40 informal conversations. Data collection occurred over a period of 18 months, with participants recruited by Indigenous researchers and community members.Data AnalysisInterviews were transcribed and analysed by NVivo qualitative data processing software in the first instance. The core research team and community members reviewed this analysis in order to collectively identify major themes and patterns in the perspectives of participants.ConclusionPeople in remote Indigenous communities are aware of the complex issues associated with crime in their community and have clear ideas regarding what can be done. We argue that in order to understand and address Indigenous crime and over-representation in the criminal justice system, the perspective of Indigenous people must be elevated and communities empowered to identify and implement ecologically and culturally informed solutions that will work for them.

  • Decolonising Psychology: Validating Social and Emotional Wellbeing
    • Authors: Pat Dudgeon; Abigail Bray, Belinda D'Costa, Roz Walker
      Pages: 316 - 325
      Abstract: ObjectiveAustralian Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander social and emotional wellbeing (SEWB) is a multifaceted concept that acknowledges that a person's wellbeing is determined by a range of inter-related domains: body, mind and emotions, family and kinship, community, culture, Country, and spirituality. This paper explores the meaning of these seven domains of SEWB.MethodA thematic analysis of qualitative data obtained from the National Empowerment Project (NEP) was conducted, along with a literature review of each domain.ResultsFindings from the NEP, together with relevant literature, indicate that implementing strategies that focus on strengthening SEWB is important for individual, family, and community wellbeing. Addressing the social determinants of Indigenous disadvantage is also shown to have an important role in strengthening the SEWB of individuals, families, and communities.ConclusionIt is important for all practitioners and policymakers involved with improving Indigenous health to recognise the seven inter-related domains of SEWB and to acknowledge and support people in addressing the social determinants of wellbeing.
