Personality and Recovery: How Did “I” Get Here?
Sky Kershner, MSW, DMin

Sky Kershner, MSW, DMin, is an emotionally focused pastoral counselor and has a deep interest in the mysteries of personality, relationships, addiction, and recovery. As an Assistant Professor at West Virginia University School of Medicine, Charleston Division, he teaches Affect Phobia Therapy and Psychodynamics. He is a member of the Motivational Interviewing Network of Trainers and is a MINT Certified Trainer (one of 80 world-wide) and has trained over 5000 professionals in MI internationally.

As a person in recovery, Dr. Kershner comes from a long line of men with drinking problems, having wrestled with his own drinking when he was in his psychotherapy residency in New York City, where, he says, if you are anxious enough, you can do 90 meetings in seven days!

Dr. Kershner has received several awards for his professional work, including the West Virginia Civil Rights Award and West Virginia Counselor of the Year. His biggest “15 minutes of fame” moment appearing as a guest therapist on the Discovery Studios television show “Hoarders.”

Final Approach
Lyle Prouse

Retired Airline Captain Lyle Prouse is the first person arrested and convicted under a federal law for flying under the influence. A decorated U.S. Marine Corps pilot in Vietnam, Prouse made headlines for his 1990 arrest; he was fired from his airline, stripped of all flying certifications, and served 16 months in federal prison. Despite seemingly impossible obstacles, Prouse got sober, returned to Northwest Airlines, and retired as a 747 captain. In January 2001 he received a full pardon from then President Bill Clinton.
