ICMA member the Seamen’s Church Institute of New York and New Jersey (SCI) has collaborated with the Episcopal Church in publishing an online video on piracy. The video features the SCI’s recent initiative to research the psychological impact of piracy on survivors. The SCI’s research is intended to guage the appropriate medical care of seafarers after pirate attacks and hostage-taking.

ICMA members are reminded that the SCI had previously invited chaplains to pass on information of piracy survivors who have agreed to participate in the research.
