CLINICAL PASTORAL EDUCATION (CPE)

CPE is theological and professional education for ministry. In CPE theological students, ordained clergy, members of religious orders, and qualified lay people minister to people in crisis situations while being supervised. Out of intense involvement with supervisors, other students, people in crisis, and other professionals, CPE students are challenged to improve the quality of their pastoral relationships. Through pastoral practice, written case studies and verbatims, individual supervision, seminar participation, and relevant reading students are encouraged to develop genuine, caring pastoral relationships. Often part of seminary education, it is also continuing education and refreshment in ministry for the experienced pastor. Furthermore, CPE provides the professional training needed for a career in chaplaincy.
