Aboriginal family and the state : the conditions of history /

by Babidge, Sally.

Publisher: Farnham, U.K. ; Burlington, VT. Ashgate 2010Description: xix, 269 p. : ill., maps ; 24 cm.Notes: Includes bibliographical references (p. [245]-264) and indexSummary: Aboriginal Family and the State examines the contemporary relations and history of Indigenous families in Australia, specifically referencing issues of government control and recent official recognition of Aboriginal 'traditional owners'. Drawing on detailed empirical research, it develops a discussion of the anthropological issues of kinship and relatedness within colonial and 'postcolonial' contexts. This volume explores the conditions affecting the formation of 'family' among indigenous people in rural northern Australia, as well as the contingencies of 'family' in the legal and political context of contemporary indigenous claims to land. With a rich discussion of the production, practice and inscription of social relations, this volume examines everyday expressions of 'family', and events such as meetings and funerals, demonstrating that kinship is formed and reformed through a complicated social practice of competing demands on identity.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).

by Sims, Margaret | Guilfoyle, Andrew | Kulisa, Judy | Targowska, Anna | Teather, Susan.

Publisher: West Perth, W.A. Australian Research Alliance for Children and Youth 2008Description: PDF.Notes: Family & early yearsSummary: "This paper reports on research (both primary research and a literature review), undertaken with the aim of demonstrating strategies for successful inclusion into Australian society of children and families from culturally and linguistically different (CaLD) backgrounds. We recognise that CaLD children and families are commonly disadvantaged through being part of a minority group in Australia, their experiences prior to migration (for example refugee trauma), the different values and practices they may encounter here, the difficulty of learning a new language, the problems they face having qualifications and experience ratified, and the varying forms of racism the may experience. A number of innovative and highly successful programmes operate in different areas of Australia that are very successful in supporting CaLD families." -- Summary. ; CULTURALLY AND LINGUISTICALLY DIVERSE (CALD)Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).

ECUMENICAL MIGRATION CENTRE (EMC). Family RelationshipsSummary: "The study of attachment has yielded important discoveries about parent-child relationships, the internal world, and psychopathology. Yet until quite recently, therapists were largely left to draw their own inferences about the clinical applications of this growing body of knowledge. In this book, David J. Wallin translates attachment theory and research into an innovative framework that grounds adult psychotherapy in the facts of childhood development. Thoughtful, practical, and highly readable, the volume offers fresh insights on the therapist's role as well as clear-cut recommendations for practice." -- Book jacket.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).

Families the and now : 1980 - 2010 /

by Hayes, Alan | Australian Institute of Family Studies | Weston, Ruth | Qu, Lixia | Gray, Matthew.

Publisher: Melbourne, Vic. Australian Institute of Family Studies 2010Description: 8 p.Summary: Australian families have changed significantly over the last thirty years but they remain the basic unit in society for caring for each other and raising children, according to this report. ; At the time Australian Institute of Family Studies commenced operations in 1980, the marriage rate was declining, and although the vast majority of couples were married, increasing proportions were cohabiting (i.e., in a de facto marriage). The divorce rate had peaked when the Family Law Act 1975 came into force in 1976 - the same year in which the fertility rate had fallen to below replacement level for the first time. By 1980, the divorce rate had subsided but was well above pre-1976 rates, while the fertility rate had continued its downward slide. Alarm bells were ringing about where the family was heading and whether it would even survive. ; In this 30th anniversary year, it is timely to reflect on ways in which Australian families have changed over the life of the Institute and to consider some of the trends that were underway prior to its establishment. This Facts Sheet begins with a brief outline of trends in basic family structure, and then examines transitions that have contributed to these structural changes and some of the key ways in which family functioning has changed.Availability: No items available
