Rev. Alan Galt has been lecturing in Pastoral Theology and Practice at St Andrew's Greek Orthodox Theological College since 1990. During this time he has educated and trained numerous undergraduate and graduate students in the areas of pastoral care, counselling, chaplaincy work, clinical pastoral education, mental health and aged care. In more recent years he has extended the curriculum of St Andrew's in the area of pastoral theology and practice and further developed the field education possibilities available to students in ways this College could not have expected to accomplish without him. In 2006, Rev. Galt was awarded an Order of Australia Medal in recognition of his services to mental health and chaplaincy training.
