Summer Practicum. Clinical Pastoral Education is a form of theological education taking place in both academic classrooms and in clinical settings where ministry is being practiced. The textbooks for CPE include in-depth study of “the living human documents.” By “living human documents,” we mean both the people who receive care as well as a study of ourselves, the givers of care. Through the practice of ministry and the reflection thereon with supervisor and peers, the experiential learning that is CPE takes place. Students earn one unit of CPE at one of the 350 CPE Centers accredited by the Association of Clinical Pastoral Education (ACPE) (or the equivalent in another, approved setting) and then, by registering in a CPE seminar at Nashotah House can earn up to 3 credits of elective academic credit for the experience (PM 611).
