Contract and Sessional Faculty, Graduate Students
School of Social Work


Cathy is in the final stages of writing her PhD dissertation in social work . Through engaging with the art of improvisation, Cathy’s work investigates social work relating. Her research and practice call for exploration and active reflection on the ways in which less- scripted and routine ways of being with others, can provide transformative alternatives to practice and education.
