Dr. Steve Conway is the Director of Canadian Master of Counselling Programs. He received a Psy.D. (Clinical Psychology) from Antioch University and a Masters of Arts in Counselling Psychology from CityU in Vancouver. In addition, he oversees CityU’s counselling internships and the Community Counselling Clinics in Vancouver. Dr. Conway’s primary role is working in collaboration with local program Directors in ensuring the academic quality, development and growth of the Canadian Master of Counselling programs in Vancouver, Vancouver Island, Edmonton and Calgary. He is committed to ensuring that the Canadian counselling programs remain committed to training highly competent and ethical practitioners who engage in social justice, community engagement, critical thinking, and lifelong scholarship. Steve believes that his responsibility in working with students is to assist them in realizing their potential and travelling alongside students on their transformation into becoming counselling therapists. He takes an engaging, open minded and pragmatic approach to teaching graduate students and never shies away from humour. He has worked in a range of settings including non-profit, government, and corporate organizations. His professional experience includes street level outreach, community engagement, substance abuse counselling and assessment, multi-systemic family therapy, treatment of adult offenders, management of a Family Counselling and Addictions clinic and he has spent several years as an employee and family assistance therapist. In addition to his full professional life at CityU, Dr. Conway maintains a small private practice providing psychotherapy, consultation, conducting assessments and facilitating wellness workshops for organizations. Dr. Conway believes that if he’s going to teach students to become therapists and future colleagues it’s important that he’s still actively engaged in the work of being a therapist.
