The AKTC is dedicated to collaborating with Alaskan communities to train behavioral health care providers by blending best practices with traditional wisdom. Training is offered via interactive video conferencing counting as face-to-face contact.
Collaboration with Alaskan communities supports continuing education delivery to even the most remote rural communities. Trainings are carefully planned to meet certification and continuing education (CE) approval requirements for social workers, professional counselors, psychologists, marriage and family therapists, and behavioral health providers certified by the Alaska Commission on Behavioral Health Certification (ACBHC). Cultural attunement is promoted in BHCE trainings by blending evidence-based practices, practice based evidence, and promising practices with traditional wisdom. Cultural tailoring works to meet identified needs of rural and Alaska Native participants.
