Dr. Diana Brecher is a clinical psychologist who has been working with Ryerson University's Centre for Student Development and Counselling since 1991. She was the clinical director from 1994 - 2011. As adjunct faculty at OISE/UT in the Counselling Psychology Dept. (2000 - 2009) and in the Ryerson Psychology Department, (2010 - present) she has taught graduate-level courses in CBT, brief counselling therapy, theories and techniques of counselling, and clinical supervision. In 2016, Dianas long-standing interest and certification in Positive Psychology led to a five-year secondment to the ThriveRU program within Student Affairs https://www.ryerson.ca/thriveru. She is the co-creator of the Thriving in Action program. Diana's long-term goal is to infuse Ryerson University's programming, services and academic curriculum with principles of resilience and flourishing and to help facilitate a cultural change within the university.
