Module Aims

Students will undertake a second placement through one unit of Clinical Pastoral Education (CPE) or its equivalent (12 weeks). CPE is a professional education for ministry conducted in the hospital setting. The course includes development of self-understanding and the foundation for the practice of pastoral care. CPE is a supervised twelve-week full time course, which students apply for independently and take at the completion of core modules and parish placement. CPE is a qualifying course for the completion of the Pastoral Practice Stream, and the CPE placement site is arranged in collaboration with the Assistant Director of Pastoral Theology.
