Marion Brown, PhD, RSW


Marion Brown, Trainer for CTRI

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.

People who struggle to regulate their intense emotional experiences often feel like they are at the mercy of reactive coping patterns. It can seem like these emotional storms hijack their behaviour, take control of their thinking, and hurt their relationships with other people and themselves. Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT) provides concepts and skills to help people have more choices, become more emotionally calm, and be more present in their lives.

Anxiety represents our body’s natural alarm system, signalling the possibility of danger. When this response arises too frequently or intensely and doesn’t match actual situations of danger, it can interfere with life and cause great distress. While every person experiences anxiety, it is estimated that over a quarter of the population will experience anxiety at levels that cause distress in their lives.
