Ruth Pluznick, Narrative Therapist

Ruth PluznickRuth Pluznick was the Director of Clinical Services at Oolagen, a public Children's Mental Health Centre in Toronto, Canada for 25 years; she resigned the position in 2017 to return to private practice, consulations and teaching.   She is a member of the international faculty of the Dulwich Centre and a teacher for the Narrative Therapy Centre of Toronto.

Ruth has been practicing and teaching narrative therapy for over 25 years, and is particularly committed to the application of these ideas in marginalized communities. With her colleague Natasha Kis-Sines, Ruth has developed a program for children growing up with parents with mental health difficulties; the young people share their stories with other youth and families in similar circumstances.  Natasha and Ruth have published three articles about this project and a documentary film with these young people and their parents.  In this work, Ruth and Natasha’s intention was to challenge single-storylines of deficit and create platforms for the skills and knowledge, love and care these parents bring to their families, storylines that are often obscured or minimized by others. 

Ruth is also involved with narrative projects in residential programs and a range of community initiatives. Ruth has travelled to and taught narrative therapy with the Dulwich Centre in Rwanda, Israel, Ramallah, Australia, New Zealand, Hong Kong, Singapore, France, Greece and Norway.
