Four clinical psychology graduate students have been awarded for their work with Indigenous Peoples.
Rhonda Stopyn, Melissa Wuerch, Seint Kokokyi, and Nichole Faller were awarded the Friends of Meitheal Award. Presented by the Meitheal Team, based in Saskatoon, the award was created for those answering the calls of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission, and helping to improve the relationship between psychology and Indigenous Peoples. This award is in recognition of the work they did as part of their clinical placement at the Randall Kinship Centre, Child and Youth Services, located in Regina. During their placement, the four-student team continually demonstrated their commitment to learning about Indigenous culture through teachings and ceremonies.
“We are so overwhelmed by the award. It totally took us by surprise!” said Faller.
