Education And Training Resources

 Addiction Training for Clergy

Newly developed resources have been designed specifically with you in mind. A "toolkit" entitled "Spiritual Caregiving to Help Addicted Persons and Families: Pastoral Counselor's Curriculum for the Education of Faith Leaders" has just been printed by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration. This curriculum provides four study modules to use for training faith leaders. AAPC members can request a complimentary copy by emailing brenda@aapc.org and note "Toolkit" in the subject line. It will assist you in furthering your efforts to provide important training to faith community leaders regarding the impact of alcoholism and drug addiction on individuals, children and families. This also offers you the opportunity to collaborate with other service providers in your community.

Additional resources for The Clergy Education and Training Project can be found at http://www.nacoa.net/clergy.htm. Please call the AAPC office if you require assistance or have any questions.
