Steven Dakai, AD, SAC, ICS, believes we should change the way mental health and substance abuse treatment has been provided,
eliminating the word "treatment" and moving the focus toward wellness and recovery. As an educator, trainer and clinician, Dr. Dakai applies his
knowledge, skills and practices, which are based on his experiences and training. His services at the Maehnowesekiyah Wellness Center on the
Menominee Indian Reservation are directed toward the holistic maintenance, prevention and improvement of the human being, focusing on the
human being's desire to change and understand his or her world and what in that world prevents a troubled human being from seeking wellness.
He does this by exposing or re-exposing ideas and ideals that allow all cultures to come together for relief from pain and suffering. Dr. Dakai was
born in Wausau, WI, lived 40 years in Phoenix, AZ, and eventually moved to Kotzebue, AK, located 30 miles north of the Arctic Circle, where he
served eight years as the Clinical Director and Assistant Director providing AODA services to Inupiat Native communities over a span of 40,000
sq. mi. "There is a need to understand that what works for the people of the buffalo, may not work for the people of the whale. Therefore sensitivity
to culture is an important consideration," he said. "This isn't about where human beings live - It is about how human beings live!" Dr. Dakai holds a
doctorate in Addictive Disorders from the Breining Institute and has been published in the Journal of Addictive Disorders. He holds state
certifications as an Addition Counselor, Clinical Supervisor and Administrator of Behavioral Health Services, and National Certification as a
Substance Abuse Professional and is a certified Grief Recovery Specialist.

Eric Szatkowski has been a Special Agent with the Wisconsin Department of Justice, Division of Criminal Investigation (DCI) since 1991.
He’s currently assigned to the state’s Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force in Milwaukee. Eric’s law enforcement experience also includes
murder-for-hire, cold-case homicides, death investigations, anti-government groups, fugitives, and narcotics enforcement. Since 1999, Eric has
become one of the nation’s leading undercover officers in apprehending sexual predators of children who use the Internet to seduce or exploit
children. He has been responsible for the arrest of between 100 and 150 men from Wisconsin and around the nation, most of whom traveled
various distances to have sex with who they believed to be an underage boy or girl. Eric’s arrests also include those who sexually assault
children, distribute, possess, and/or manufacture child pornography, and expose children to harmful materials. Eric’s dynamic presentations on
Internet crimes against children have been seen by more than 53,000 people in Wisconsin and the U.S. Audiences include police officers,
prosecutors, child welfare advocates, correctional and social workers, civic groups, business professionals, doctors, parents, and middle school
and high school students. His presentations inspired the drafting and passage of new legislation in Wisconsin in 2006, Assembly Bill 942. This law
significantly increased the levels of felonies for online child exploitation, increased maximum prison penalties, and implemented presumptive
minimum prison terms for online predators. Eric has also testified in court as an expert in the online sexual exploitation of children, and has
provided assistance to dozens of law enforcement agencies in this area of police work. Eric’s work has been recognized by many organizations,
including the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, and the Wisconsin Association of Homicide Investigators. Some of Eric’s cases
