Lateral violence in the Aboriginal community in Adelaide, South Australia: From dilemmas to strategies.
by Yvonne Clark
Lateral violence describes how members of oppressed groups direct their dissatisfaction inward toward themselves and others within their community. I was inspired to take action to further understand lateral violence and assist to prevent it within the Aboriginal community in Adelaide. Consequently myself and colleagues developed awareness workshops for community called ‘preventing lateral violence’ which had been received well. Further exploration of its understanding has been via research in the form of my recent PhD. This research critically examines the concept of lateral violence in the Aboriginal community and is comprised of two separate studies utilising an Indigenous methodology as a guiding framework with a combination of both quantitative and qualitative approaches.
