Clinical Pastoral Education - Level 1
Accelerated Summer Programme
As a CPE student you will encounter people in crisis and learn from examination of the experience under the guidance of a Chaplain Supervisor as well as interaction with and feedback from resident chaplains, peers, physicians, nurses, police officers, university professors and others. It is recognized that each student brings unique questions and motivations. Thus, learning goals for each student are negotiated with the Supervisor. These goals are then pursued in a variety of settings such as individual supervision, meeting with your peer group in interpersonal sessions, verbatims, didactic and seminars.
Dr. Christopher Fisher is serving as a Supervisor for the current accelerated unit, he is a Board Certified Chaplain and former Zen Buddhist monk.
Dr. Fisher is a full time professor in the Division of Philosophy and Religion and the Psychology department.
CPE is an opportunity to discern the unique contribution of your own faith group to the understanding of pastoral care.
All classes will be taught in English.
