Matt Sena, M.A.

Matt Sena was instrumental in introducing the BrainWise Program to Alaska natives. He began this work with the Chugachmiut on the Kenai Peninsula, and has since been active in training native populations in both Alaska and in Canada. In addition to his teaching and counseling with Chugachmiut, he is a doctoral candidate in clinical community psychology at the University of Alaska at Anchorage, where he is completing his thesis on the use of educational technology in the delivery of the BrainWise Program. It was due to his efforts that BrainWise was listed on the Indian Health Service’s registry of programs approved for use with Native Americans and Alaska Natives.
