PSYC472 Indigenous Research Methodologies in Psychology

Indigenous Research Methodologies in Psychology focuses on methodologies of Indigenous research in psychology.  The course addresses historical and contemporary purposes of Indigenous research, roles and responsibilities of the Indigenous researcher, and sources of information, including oral and recorded traditions. Proper treatment of research findings is emphasized, as well as the role of Institutional Review Boards and Human Subjects ethics, with particular attention to issues of power and control. Important questions are: to whom does the research belong, whose benefit and interests are at stake, who is the researcher and what is the researcher's relationship to the community, who carries out the research, and who controls and/or disseminates the results. In this course, students complete a research proposal grounded in the Indigenous approach to research.
