Thira Consulting offers Indigenous communities emotionally safe, culturally-rooted, anti-colonial, strength-based services that enhance capacity and resilience in individuals, families, professionals, and the community as a whole.
Through a respectful and interactive approach to teaching (including practice-circles, small and large-group discussions, questionnaires, role-plays and other exercises), participants are encouraged to share their experiences and skills and to build on their own strengths.
Thira Consulting currently offers: clinical consultation/supervision and skill training to front-line human service workers; mental health assessments and program development for healing programs/participants; individual counselling; and crisis intervention/debriefing for communities.
Darien Thira, PhD, R. Psych., serves as a community development/mental health consultant for many Indigenous communities across Canada and offers training workshops, program development assistance, and clinical consultation.
