Why standard assessment processes are culturally inappropriate : perspectives of professionals from Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander organisations, non-government agencies and government departments. /

by Bromfield, Leah M | Higgins, Jenny R | Higgins, Daryl J.

Publisher: Melbourne, Vic. Australian Institute of Family Studies 2007Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: Cover title. Includes bibliographical references (p. 8)Summary: Standard assessment processes have a dual purpose. They are designed to determine a carer?s capacity to provide care within a framework of mainstream (Anglo-European) culture, parenting values and family life, as well as middle-class living standards. They are also designed to screen out undesirable carers such as those who are likely to abuse children or expose them to adverse situations (e.g., violence or crime). However, when attempting to assess carers within in an Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander context, standard assessment procedures are unsuitable as they fail to elicit relevant information, and overlook the cultural needs of Indigenous children in care.Availability: (1)

The identification and assessment of risk factors was based on a non-systematic scoping exercise to find longitudinal or cohort studies able to identify risk factors associated with poor youth outcomes. The identification of what works was based on a rapid review (Rapid Evidence Assessment, or REA) of existing studies using a rigorous search strategy of on-line databases. After a final screening for quality and relevance, the results of the REA were based on a set of 56 systematic reviews." -- APHO website.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).
