Volume 18 No. 1 April 2006

The first issue of the Australian Community psychologist is a special issue which considers how psychologists can and should work for and with Indigenous Australians.

The journal includes five papers from two symposia of the 2005 APS. The journal represents a revival of interest, enthusiasm and activism within psychology for the long term challenge of developing more culturally inclusive, respectful and competent psychology. The papers explore the discomfort that learning and developing and change can provoke.
