ADDICTIONS COUNSELING IS NEW IN MOST OF AFRICA!!
This school has only ran once in South Central Africa, East Africa, and Southern Africa. The ADDICTIVE BEHAVIOR COUNSELING SCHOOL (CNH 321-322) will start on the 15 of September 2015
You will need to have graduated the DTS and a basic counseling course to attend this School. By basic counseling course we mean, Foundations for Counseling Ministries, or, Community Counseling School, or Family Ministries School. If you do not have this but have substantial experience in counseling, you could be admitted on that basis. If you have training in counseling from other reputable institutions, you will need to mail in certified copies of your non-YWAM training Diploma/certificate and the transcript. Acceptance into this school does not guarantee that your course content will be accepted for transfer by the Provost Office and Dean of the College. It only means that the School Leader has assessed your readiness for participation in this course and found it adequate!
ADDICTIVE BEHAVIOUR COUNSELING SEMINAR
The first half of this school will be the Addictive Behavior Counseling Seminar content. The seminar is open to all who are born again, involved in Addictions Counseling with verifiable references, and intend to use the knowledge to minister to addicts. The seminar is specifically intended to assist practitioners in Addictions Counseling who have no prior formal training in Addictions counseling. The University of the Nations students taking this course after the Foundations for Counseling Ministries will have greater breadth for the course and more familiarity with counseling concepts and terms.
CERTIFICATION AS A CERTIFIED ADDICTIONS COUNSELOR LEVEL ONE (CAC I)
The University of the Nations has agreed to assist students working in nations without competent certification bodies by offering students who comply with all the requirements for such certification. For now, Dr. Darvin Smith and Carol Smith will continue to screen those who apply for CAC I certification on behalf of the UofN. This means all students who have completed their DTS, FCM, and ABCS must get in touch with the Smiths for detailed guidance.
