Rebecca Gray will speak about the revamped Mental Health First Aid Course as well as some tips for all our overall Mental Health.

About Rebecca.

My name is Rebecca Gray. I have my Bachelor of Social Work from the University of Manitoba and my Master of Education from Brandon University. I’ve worked as a professional foster parent, a child welfare worker, a behavior specialist and guidance counsellor in the K-12 school system, and as a student advisor and instructor in the post-secondary system.

I found Restitution and Control Theory when I was searching for effective strategies for dealing with children’s behavior, but I got hooked on it because it gave me a way of understanding all human behavior, and concrete ways to approach difficulties. I incorporate these ideas into all my work, and teach Restitution and Control Theory extensively, both in my work with individuals, school and youth care staff and parents. I love to teach, and have developed a number of leadership programs based on Restitution and Control Theory to help any organization build the capacity to work together more effectively. I am also a Certified Mental Health First Aid trainer with the Mental Health Commission of Canada. I am the Past President of the Westman School Clinicians Association and Past President of the Canadian Association of School Social Workers.

I have two adult children, and I live with my husband on a farm near Erickson Manitoba.

March - Stay tuned for more details soon!

All of our speakers will be presenting via Zoom beginning at 10:30am and going for an hour.
