Congratulations Dr Lorraine Muller: Educational Publisher's Award Australia 2015 Winner

JCU's Dr. Lorraine Muller has won an Educational Publisher's Award Australia for the section Tertiary (Wholly Australian) Scholarly Resource for her book:

 A Theory for Indigenous Australian Health and Human Service Work 
Call number: 362.849915 MUL

An extract from the publisher states:

Indigenous ways of thinking and working are grounded in many thousands of years of oral tradition, and continue among Australian Aboriginal and Torres Strait Island people today. Lorraine Muller shows that understanding traditional holistic approaches to social and emotional wellbeing is essential for practitioners working with Indigenous clients across the human services. She explores core principles of traditional Indigenous knowledge in Australia, including relatedness, Country, circular learning, stories and spirituality. She then shoes how these principles represent a theory for Indigenous practice.
