A Town Hall Discussion: Re-focusing on the Boisen Tradition

Anton Boisen with chaplains in training, early 1950s.
Join us online for an open discussion.

The College of Pastoral Supervision and Psychotherapy (CPSP) was founded in 1990 as a credentialing community by 15 certified members of the Association for Clinical Pastoral Education (ACPE) and the American Association of Pastoral Counselors (AAPC). The CPSP is now in its 32nd year and has distinguished itself as having the highest standards in clinical chaplaincy and clinical pastoral training.

The distinction between supervised “clinical pastoral training” – a term intentionally chosen by Anton T. Boisen, whose own chaplaincy started the clinical pastoral movement in 1925 – and “clinical pastoral education” – ACPE’s members are called “educators” – was not a central issue when CPSP began. However, this issue and many more are addressed by Raymond J. Lawrence, General Secretary, in his work, and especially in his articles on The Pastoral Report. 

Join us as we meet to discuss the future of clinical chaplaincy as we re-focus on the Boisen Tradition. Anyone interested in listening and contributing to the on-going conversation is welcome to attend. This is a virtual event - no registration is required.
