Clinical Pastoral Education Program

Clinical Pastoral Education in General:


Clinical Pastoral Education (CPE) programs provide an opportunity for ministers, seminarians and lay people to develop pastoral competency within a particular pastoral setting (usually a hospital, parish, hospice, retirement home, etc.), and seeks to foster the pastors own self-awareness as a pastoral care-giver.


The CPE approach to training is based upon an "action-reflection" model of learning. Pastoral trainees’ function as ecumenical chaplains providing pastoral care on assigned areas and use their experience in pastoral encounters as a basis for their learning. While seminary settings provide an academic environment for the study of pastoral theology in contrast the CPE center provides the clinical basis for learning.
