Will Bratt

Will Bratt is a settler of English, Irish, and Scottish descent on the Coast Salish territory of Victoria, BC.  He works primarily as a therapist in private practice, and does nonprofit community work with several different agencies.  Will has a longstanding interest in the importance of language in diverse social contexts, especially in the context of therapy.  He has presented locally and internationally on his own independent research related to how Canadian anti-violence agencies represent violence and victims' responses to violence in their online public information.

Within his own private practice, Will often works with people responding to diverse forms of violence, abuse, and mistreatment.  Many of the people he works for also describe themselves as experiencing depression, anxiety, self-esteem issues, and other common concerns people consult with counsellors about.  Will is constantly exploring ways of applying response-based ideas to these common experiences of adversity.
