Swift Current Alum...
Hi, I’m Deb Bissonnette. I am a social worker and a counsellor. I was born and raised in Swift Current, SK and, I have strong family ties to the community. I moved away to attend university, which took me to Saskatoon for 5 years and to Scranton, PA, USA for 2 years. I hold a Bachelor degree in psychology and a Master degree in social work. After beginning my career in B.C., I returned to Swift Current to raise my family. I am a proud mother of 2 adult children.
For over 25 years, I have worked helping children, families and adults. For 12 years, I worked in child protection in both B.C. and SK. I have also worked for the Saskatchewan Health Authority in Mental Health Services for the past 15 years. Throughout my career, I have gained extensive training in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Grief Therapy, Solution Focused Counselling, Children of Trauma and the Physiology of Trauma, Violence Threat Assessment (VTRA), Applied Suicide Intervention Skills (ASIST), Safe and Sound Protocol (SSP), and The Incredible Years Parent Group Leader training. I enjoy serving my community and assisting people with finding the resources that they need to live better, more fulfilling lives.
I believe contributing to the future of my profession is important. Therefore, I have been able to share my knowledge and expertise as a field instructor for many social work students through the University of British Columbia, University of Calgary (MSW program) and the University of Regina.
When I’m not working, I enjoy spending time with family and friends as well as helping others in need.
