Marion is a registered Social Worker in private practice and a Professor of Social Work at Dalhousie University. She has worked in positions from frontline to supervisory in both clinical and community based settings. In addition to her responsibilities at Dalhousie and training with CTRI, Marion has a small private practice where she works with individuals and families who are facing barriers related to mental health, addiction, poverty, discrimination, violence and relationship conflict. Marion is also a co-author of our Counselling Insights book. She believes that we both shape and are shaped by social systems, and therefore our analysis and therapeutic intervention needs to focus on the individual within the social ecology. Marion has an engaging and inviting facilitation style, sharing stories from practice and drawing on the experiences of participants to anchor workshop material with relevant examples in work and in life.
