Rajni Sharma, RP, a Ph.D. candidate in Community Psychology at Wilfrid Laurier University, a practicing Art Therapist and Psychotherapist, is conducting a Ph.D. research study on how to address racial trauma in therapy.  She will share the study with the OSRP to help better shape our programming.

“I am inviting you to participate in a research study entitled Addressing Racial Trauma in Psychotherapy by completing an online survey. The purpose of this survey is to understand how much we know and understand on the topics of racial trauma, as psychotherapists.  A vast sample of practicing psychotherapists (18+ years of age) from across Ontario are being invited to complete this online survey…

This survey should take approximately 10-15 minutes. There are no wrong answers. This is an opportunity to identify gaps in training and practices that support the experiences of racialized (visible people of colour) communities. Your honesty, feedback and participation in this survey is highly valued. Your answers will remain anonymous.  

To participate, you must be: 

  1. 18+ years of age 

  2. Registered or qualified psychotherapist 

  3. Practise in Ontario 

Participants in the survey are eligible for a chance to win one $50 Starbucks e-gift card.

If helpful, I or my supervisor, Dr. Melody Norton Ninomiya at, are here to answer any questions or provide additional information about this process. This project has been reviewed and approved by the University Research Ethics Board (REB#8524).
