PRESCRIBED TEXT FOR:
Institution: ACU North Sydney - 2014 2nd Semester
Course Code: HLSC120
Subject: Society Culture And Health
Binaš Goonj is a phrase taken from the Bidjara language in Southwestern
Queensland and means 'they hear, but they don't listen'.
Binaš Goonj: Bridging Culture in Aboriginal Health was first published
in 1992. Eighteen years on and the health status of many Aboriginal
people remains the poorest in Australia, despite so many years of
research, policies and interventions.
This fully updated new edition examines the background, processes
and practices behind this situation, and provides practical strategies
to assist in addressing this complex subject. Extensively adopted as
a teaching text across Australia, Binaš Goonj provides coverage of
essential Aboriginal health topics in an accessible manner.
Readers are challenged to examine their own values, the relativity of
values, and the use of power in society. It engages readers with a
clear and readable writing style.
