Short Biography:


Robert is a Social Worker and Sociologist whose 28 year career has spanned the fields of education, child welfare, correctional 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.


Robert describes his private practice as a "Teaching Practice", 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 in cultural competence and conducting cultural assessments has received national attention.
