Aim of assessment: 1000 words
This assessment requires you to demonstrate your understanding some of the concepts covered in this topic including power, the past and present history of colonisation, white privilege, racism, decolonisation and culturally responsiveness and begin thinking about their implications for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders peoples and social work practice.
Your use of language is very important, so please be very aware when preparing assessments. This includes the need for the use of capitals (for example Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples) and NOT using abbreviations (eg do not use the term ATSI).

These practices align with ethical social work practice.
