About Joanne’s Workshops:

Joanne has a keen interest in training. She actively participates in the training of students and residents on a variety of mental health topics at the local counselling agency where she is both a practicing psychologist and supervisor. Joanne has also developed and presented workshops to professionals across Canada, the US and in the UK. Her most recent area of interest has been in the area of resiliency. In June 2016, she presented the workshop “Resilient Family Stories” at the 2016 Play Therapy United Kingdom Conference.

Due to the recent release of her book “The Fifth Position: A Guide for Developing Intercultural Resiliency and Pluralism” Joanne is in the process of moving forward with the development of the workshop associated with this publication.
