relation to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples

Post by whollymolly » Tue May 09, 2017 10:51 pm

In your own words describe a strategy for each of the categories below in relation to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and communities, engaging and participating in the centre:
a) Sharing power.
b) Facilitating participation.
c) Self-determination.
d) Self-control.

Sharing power. Sharing power is about open two way engagement and the implementation of inclusive strategies to allow both groups to work in parallel to achieve outcomes. The National Framework for Protecting Australia’s Children recommends the practice of establishing genuine active partnerships between Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander.

facilitating participation: Working together with individuals and communities requires flexibility and partnership to succeed. It requires adequate arrangements and processes by which individuals and communities can engage with public authorities and participate in the decisions that affect them.      

self-determination: Self-determination is a collective right (belonging to a 'people' as a group) rather than an individual right. The claim by Indigenous peoples to the right of self-determination raises two questions: (1) Do Indigenous groups satisfy the definition of 'peoples'? (2) Does self-determination give Indigenous peoples the right to break away from an existing nation? The effects are Many Aboriginal people want and prefer Aboriginal services to mainstream services.
Many Aboriginal people don’t want to be treated separately - they see it as going back to the thinking of ‘in the mission’ - a backwards step.
Service providers need to talk with communities about the best ways of providing services to Aboriginal people.

self-control: self-control is an ongoing process in each child’s development. Educators can play an important role in encouraging children to develop self-control through interactions, appropriate guidance, and child-directed activities. When encouraging children's self-control, educators need to be sure their expectations are appropriate and realistic for the particular child.
