Spiritual Care & Education Department

Clinical Pastoral Education (CPE) is interfaith professional education which brings theological students and ministers of all faiths (pastors, priests, rabbis, imams, and others) into supervised encounters with persons in crisis. Students develop new awareness of themselves as persons and of the needs of those to whom they minister. CPE is an experience in process education. The heart of CPE is ministry with people and learning through reflection, discussion, and evaluation with other students and supervisors.
