Saint Vladimir’s Orthodox Theological Seminary [SVOTS] will host another free webinar to highlight its Doctor of Ministry program, which will focus on Substance Use Disorders [SUD].

The webinar, set for Thursday, February 28, 2019, will feature recent graduate Rev. Alcuin Kellerhouse, D. Min. and his project, titled “Responding to Substance Use Disorders.”

“We read of the impact of the opioid epidemic on our society, and in the ministries our clergy encounter Substance Use Disorders in a variety of settings,” explained Father Alcuin. “This presentation will explore how Orthodox clergy perceive the adequacy of their preparation, their readiness to recognize SUD, and respond appropriately. Implications for the larger Church and theological education will be explored.”

Online registration for the webinar, which is free and open to the public, is now available.  Registration will close at 12:00 a.m. Monday, February 25. Registrants will be emailed a link to join the webinar the morning of the event.

This webinar is the latest in SVOTS’ D.Min. webinar series, with the most recent webinar held in November. The series offers the public a glimpse into the Seminary’s D.Min. program by highlighting recent graduates and their final projects.
