I launched DSA in 1987 to provide corporate counselling and consulting services for senior executives, staff, and family via Employee Assistance Programs. Our group has provided a complete range of short-term corporate counselling services for 27 years as well as a full range of private practice longer term psychotherapy services. Corporate clients include Vancity Savings Credit Union (23 years: 1987 through 2010), BlueShore Financial (26 years), Mountain Equipment Co-Op (27 years - we currently run the National EAP services for all MEC locations across Canada), Central 1 (Risk Management BC Central Credit Union: 24 years), Teldon Print & Media Group (5 years).
In 2000 I completed a research study on staff experience of bank robbery events.This research study was requested by the Canadian Bankers Association and included all six major Canadian banks and several credit unions. The project was done in conjunction with the Vancouver Board of Trade. This study was requested following completion of my doctoral dissertation on the effects of bank robbery events on financial institution staff.
In 2004 Vancity Savings Credit Union was awarded the American Psychological Association “Psychologically Healthy Workplace Award” in part for our Bank Robbery Response Program which I developed and piloted in Vancity in 1987 and which DSA continued to refine within that fine organization for over 20 years. This award represents the first ever such award given by the APA to a Canadian company. DSA has conducted over 1200 bank and credit union robbery debriefings.
I am a Board Certified Expert in Traumatic Stress, Diplomate. I am Board Certified in Emergency Crisis Intervention. I am an alumni of the Oxford Strategic Leadership Program (Templeton College). The strength of Daniel Stone & Associates is in the people. We have top specialists in a range of areas including executive leader program, crisis intervention, ADHD, trauma, stress & coping, life coaching, addictions, parenting, family, eldercare, depression, anxiety, corporate interventions, workplace violence. DSA offers three unique group workshops: Stress Recovery, Resilience, and Team Building (see our DSA Workshops tab).
On a personal note I have two wonderful daughters, three grandchildren, I am an inveterate reader, addicted to learning, and a serious student of the drama and comedy of life. My own interest and curiosity, formal knowledge, clinical experience and - most of all, what I have learned from each of my clients over the last 27 years, is what someone gets if they decide to approach me with their concerns.
