About this Unit
This unit begins with a brief examination of socio-cultural theories of childhood and adolescence as a background for the critical analysis of current debates about the health and wellbeing of children and adolescents. Case studies will be used to explore contestable topics in child and youth health from an interdisciplinary perspective. The unit will address issues of child protection and parental responsibility in the mainstream community, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders, and refugee health care settings. Knowledge gained in this unit will assist beginning practitioners in a variety of disciplines to take informed positions on topics relevant to child and adolescent health.
