Short Biography


Robert Seymour Wright is a Social Worker and Sociologist whose 28 year career has spanned the fields of education, child welfare, forensic mental health, trauma, sexual violence, and cultural competence.  A “clinician/administrator,” he has always integrated his work delivering direct practice clinical service to clients with promoting lasting systemic change through social policy advocacy.  Robert holds Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees in social work and has post-graduate training in social work and sociology.  He has served in notable roles as the Race Relations Coordinator of the former Dartmouth District School Board, Executive Director of Family & Children’s Services of Cumberland County, and the Executive Director of Nova Scotia’s Child and Youth Strategy.


Robert currently maintains a uniquely located private practice.  A "Teaching Practice”; Robert often teaches at local universities and regularly supervises interns.  He also coordinates the Halifax Pro-Bono Counselling Clinic;  conducts ManTalk, a treatment/support group for male victims of sexual violence; and consults, trains, speaks and comments on a wide range of issues.  His pioneering work with colleagues in cultural competence and conducting cultural assessments has received national attention.




Myself and colleague Lana MacLean are offering a training workshop on conducting Impact of Race and Culture Assessments on November 9th and 10th, 2017:
