Welcome to Pacific Region ACPE
Clinical Pastoral Education (CPE) – Education for Spiritual Care
Clinical Pastoral Education is a certificate program for spiritual care providers. Students’ primary resource for learning is the unique “living human document,” that is, the lives of those with whom they provide spiritual care. You can expect the challenge of integrating your personal history, faith journey, sacred insights, social and cultural context, theology and psychology through individual and peer group supervision in a clinical setting.
Program take place in accredited centers across the Pacific Region and include congregations, community hospitals, university medical centers, Veterans’ Administration hospitals, nursing homes and rehabilitation clinics, and a variety of community outreach centers serving the poor and homeless.
