Sally St. George, Ph.D.
Sally St. George, PhD, is an Associate Professor in the Faculty of Social Work at the University of Calgary. Sally teaches marriage and family therapy and social work courses and supervises students who are in a field practicum. She is also a therapist and supervisor with the Calgary Family Therapy Centre at the University of Calgary. Sally is extremely dedicated to studying and improving teaching methods in higher education. In addition to teaching, she is interested in examining people’s difficulties through the lenses of grand social narratives.
She is also a Co-Editor of The Qualitative Report, http://www.nova.edu/ssss/QR/index.html, a free online journal dedicated to publishing creative and well-done qualitative research from all disciplines across the world. In this position, Sally reviews and edits manuscript submissions by joining with reviewers and authors in creating a positive and generative learning community. Sally is interested in researching alternative ways to fund “family work as community work,” that is, accountable practices without the constraints of an external funder. This dovetails with her service on the Advisory Board for the Global Partnership for Transformative Social Work in which Sally joins other colleagues in educating, researching, and practicing for greater social justice locally and globally.
