RADACT, Spring 2010

From May 19-21, the students participated in Regional Alaskan Drug and Alcohol Counseling Training provided here at the Seminary by Janet Carter.  This training, funded through a generous grant by OCMC, provides essential counseling skills to work with problems which plague Alaskan villages, such as domestic violence, alcohol abuse, and suicide.  Students participate each semester, and earn credits toward a Counselor Technician training, which enables them to be hired as a Substance Abuse Counselor by Native corporations; multiple priests in the Diocese of Alaska work such jobs, earning supplementary income.
