A warm welcome to our new therapist and team leader, Carl Dalton! Carl grew up just 50 kilometers from PRI and has recently returned from studying in Halifax, NS.  He has been working with children and youth who have struggled with homelessness, substance abuse, anxiety, disability, and mental health disorders in a variety of urban and rural settings for 15 years.  Carl specializes in group therapy for young people, and uses a strength-based, narrative approach to help young people and their families discover and re-discover skills and solutions that will bring about desired outcomes. As often as he can Carl tries to combine his unique skills in outdoor experiential education and the performing arts to engage young people. Carl considers himself a life long learner. Currently his research interests are in the areas of the socialization of adolescents, resiliency models, and ethics in social work practice. You can find more info about our staff team here
