2020 CPSP Plenary
"20/20: Re-visioning
the Apparatus of the Soul"

The 30th Anniversary
Fri. 28-Feb – Tues. 3-Mar.
The Westin Times Square, New York



Robert C. Dykstra to Keynote
and Lead Workshop at
2020 Plenary in New York

Mark Solms to be rescheduled 

Due to a conflict with family events in South Africa, Mark Solms, the intended main speaker for the 2020 CPSP Plenary, is unable to join us in New York City for the 2020 CPSP Plenary. His participation will be rescheduled.

We are excited to announce that Robert C. Dykstra, PhD, best known for his book Images of Pastoral Care: Classic Readings, will be speaking on the announced Plenary theme “20/20: Re-Visioning the Apparatus of the Soul” and also leading a Saturday workshop.

The fourth recipient of CPSP’s coveted Helen Flanders Dunbar Award for Significant Contributions to Clinical Pastoral Training (2005), and presenter of the Dunbar Memorial Lecture at the CPSP Plenary in 2007, Dykstra is a longtime friend of CPSP. He recently spoke to a packed National Clinical Training Seminar-East (NCTS-East) in Morristown, New Jersey.

During his 2005 CPSP Plenary address, Dykstra said: “Theology is not so much something to be imposed on or taught to a hospitalized patient by the minister, Boisen believed, as something to be discovered in and gleaned from that patient. This learning was then, and remains today, revolutionary.”

Dykstra earned his PhD and MDiv from Princeton Theological Seminary, has been teaching there since 1997, and is its Charlotte W. Newcombe Professor of Pastoral Theology. His areas of expertise include pastoral care and counseling, psychoanalytic theory, developmental psychology, the integration of biblical and theological precepts with research in the human sciences, human sexuality, and contemporary issues impacting children and adolescents.

The author or editor of a half-dozen books, his latest is Finding Ourselves Lost: Ministry in an Age of Overwhelm (Cascade Books, 2018).

At NCTS-East, Craig Scott Brown said: “My experience listening to Robert Dykstra was transformational. I became intrigued about the value of transparency….  He makes the statement that in order to get into a place of transparency, a person has to struggle and wrestle with the uncovered truth about themselves and face guilt and shame. I am on that journey now.”

The 2020 CPSP Plenary is preceded on Friday, February 28 by certification review panels and workshops on Saturday the 29th, officially opens with breakfast on the morning of Sunday, March 1, and culminates with the closing dinner on the evening of Monday, March 2. On Tuesday, Mar. 3, the CPSP Governing Council will meet. The New York Plenary marks the 30th anniversary of the founding of CPSP.
