|Student Contribution Band:||Band 4|

Drawing on the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Family Well Being Empowerment Program which has been established in communities for over ten years, this subject explores the concepts underlying social and emotional wellbeing and their relevance to the nature and process of human relationships. Specifically, it examines what is meant by the concepts "empowerment" and "change", and how the two interrelate. The subject therefore encourages students to re-think and re-theorise critical understandings of empowerment and develop appropriate strategies and interventions to assist Indigenous people to achieve their goals.
