PT 952 Clinical Pastoral Education 5 credits

This educational ‘process model’ of learning enables students to develop ministry skills through individual and group interviews, teaching seminars and clinical case presentations. Integration of theological reflection with practical experience is a key part of this program. The course focuses on three goals: 1) understanding one’s role as pastor and person; 2) developing pastoral skills in relations to one’s theology; 3) applying tools of behavioral assessment to the pastoral role. Students receive one-half unit of certification in CPE.
