Clinical Pastoral Education is interfaith professional education for ministry. It brings theological students, ministers, and qualified laity into supervised encounters with persons in crisis. Out of an intense involvement with persons in need, and the feedback from peers and educators, students develop new awareness of themselves as persons and of the needs of those to whom they offer spiritual care. From theological reflection on specific human situations, they gain a new understanding of ministry. Within the interdisciplinary team process of helping persons, educational seminars, and written reports, they develop skills in interpersonal and inter-professional relationships.
