Abstract

In this paper the authors will explore the applicability of Fanon's theories to the area of mental health nursing practice in Australia towards achieving cultural safety for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. The authors have undertaken an extensive review of published literature and believe this to be an important area for critical review, given Fanon's explorations of the psycho-social impact of colonialism, the psychology of the "other" and liberation throughout his work.
