What Is Clinical Pastoral Education?
Clinical Pastoral Education is a theological and professional education for ministry. It is a method of learning pastoral practice in a clinical setting under supervision, implementing clinical work with case study and didactic teaching seminars. Integration of pastoral practice, theological understanding, behavioral theory and spiritual development are part of the student's learning process. CPE students meet during seminar times with their peer group and the supervisor for teaching, case study and debriefing sessions. Regular one-on-one supervision with the supervisor gives the student opportunity for individualized guidance during the internship.
