Australian Indigenous Psychology Education Project (AIPEP)

Australia Indigenous Psychology Education Project

AIPEP is gathering resources that are useful for educators and practitioners in psychology, relating to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander social and emotional wellbeing, and to the psychology curriculum.

The Office for Learning and Teaching (OLT) has funded a collaborative project team lead by Professor Pat Dudgeon of the University of Western Australia to investigate Curricular approaches to increasing cultural competence and Indigenous participation in psychology education and training.  The project is referred to as the Australian Indigenous Psychology Education Project (AIPEP).

AIPEP draws on the perspectives of university educators and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander support staff, psychology students, employers and Indigenous psychologists in order to increase recruitment and retention of Indigenous psychology students, integrate Indigenous studies in psychology courses for all students, and facilitate training pathways for Indigenous mental health workers.
