The psychology community’s response to the 2015 Truth and Reconciliation Commission’s Report on Indigenous People’s in Canada was published on Thursday with the help of the University of Guelph-Humber.
The task force behind the response report was led by Psychology Program Head Dr. David Danto, and took a weekend of discussion followed by more time spent writing actually writing the report.
The task force found that “reconciliation is a process that must be collaborative and ongoing”, advising that psychology professionals should communicate with the three national organizations that represent the Canadian Indigenous.
The report, funded by the Canadian Psychology Association, the charity Psychology Foundation of Canada and Guelph-Humber, also had two student volunteer assistants from the university: Hannah Derue and Priscilla Chou, both psychology program students headed into year four.
The Avro Post has reached out for comment from Mr. Danto and the students.
