Shelly Dean Ph.D.
Shelly Dean is a family therapist, a supervisor, and an organizational consultant from the traditional, unceded Tk’emlups te Secwepemc territory, also known as Kamloops, British Columbia, Canada.
Shelly works for all family members when violence is at issue, with a special interest in victims of institutionalized violence. Currently, Shelly and her team work for victims of all ages and also for perpetrators of violence in the areas of risk assessments, pornography assessments, and the ongoing process of their voluntary safety plans.
A long part of her career was spent in the non-profit sector. In this setting, Shelly applied the principles of Response-Based Practice in leadership and other organizational priorities. This included ensuring that policies and human relation challenges were, in practice, upholding the dignity of all people.
She was also a foster parent for just over 15 years, and credits much of her learning to many children who had experienced both violence within their families and then a wide variety of assaults from a system designed to protect them. Shelly has also taught in the Master of Counselling programs through City University of Seattle and the Master of Education program at Thompson Rivers University.
