please follow the instruction carefully 🙁 .......
This assignment is an opportunity to consolidate your knowledge and devise a way to convey your learning experiences to others.
Through this assessment you will be demonstrating you have understood the course overall, making connections between the foundational underpinnings made early in the course, the content explored throughout, and the relevance to your studies in psychology.
You will submit your work equivalent of 1800 words. Please share your knowledge from the course and experiences learning about Aboriginal Australians and Psychology, along with key references.
You are a member of the Australian Psychological Society (APS) and have been asked to develop a short presentation as part of a training workshop session for members to demonstrate why psychologists need to develop knowledge, values and skills to work effectively with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples and Communities.
Your essay is part of a peer learning session designed to share experiences with other professionals who are learning in this area. Peer learning perspectives are used in training and development as they are demonstrated as effective to new learners and is very much a part of the ways that discipline and professional knowledge evolves.
Your submission for this assessment should reflect an answer to the question of why psychologists need to develop knowledge, values and skills to work effectively with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples and Communities. However, you should incorporate your learning experience from the course and the key aspects you would highlight to other people training in this area. The more course learning experiences you can demonstrate, the more we can assess you against the criteria for this assignment.

This assignment is about showing your learning, your understanding and your comprehension of these core weeks in the course. This means you can write in both first and third person. This means that you can write from your perspective and use the word “I”, however, you must also draw upon references that inform your learning.
For example; “I had heard about whiteness before yet couldn’t define it in my own context. The self-assessment activity enabled me to see it in my day to day (McIntosh, 1990; Tannoch-Bland, 1993) and the links to institutional racism became clear”.
To build on this example with another tip, you could then go on to define institutional racism and cite a source. If you cite a number of sources about institutional racism this would enhance your scores against the criteria.
