Vancouver Graduate Interviewed for CTV News Story

Alyson Jones, M.A. ’96, was featured in a CTV news segment about the showing of a graphic Netflix documentary at a high school. Jones, a child psychologist in Vancouver, commented on the appropriateness of the content in a school setting.

“It’s not that I think teenagers can’t handle content, they certainly can, but there has to be something surrounding that content that gives it purpose and meaning,” she said. “What is the educational value of this? Secondly, they should have a choice whether they want to or not. Thirdly, there should be support in place for people that feel upset or uncomfortable with what they’ve seen.”

Jones is a graduate of the Vancouver Campus Master of Arts in Counselling Psychology program.
