We're pleased to announce that registration is now open for the National Clinical Training Seminar - East (NCTS-East) event, November 4–5, 2019 in Morristown, NJ. The theme of this Fall's event is: "Pastoral Aesthetics: Ministry as Subversive Imagination in the Age of the Overwhelm."
We're even more excited to tell you about our guest speaker, Robert C. Dykstra, Ph.D., a professor at Princeton Theological Seminary and author!
Dr. Dykstra is on the editorial boards of Pastoral Psychology and the Journal of Childhood and Religion and he is the co-founder of the annual scholarly conference “Group for New Directions in Pastoral Theology.” His books include Finding Ourselves Lost: Ministry in the Age of Overwhelm (Cascade Books, 2018); The Faith and Friendships of Teenage Boys (Westminster John Knox Press, 2012), with Allan Hugh Cole Jr. and Donald Capps; Losers, Loners, and Rebels: The Spiritual Struggles of Boys, also co-authored with Cole and Capps (Westminster John Knox Press, 2007); Images of Pastoral Care: Classic Readings (Chalice Press, 2005); Discovering a Sermon: Personal Pastoral Preaching (Chalice Press, 2001); and Counseling Troubled Youth (Westminster John Knox Press, 1997). CPSP honored Dr. Dystra's significant contribution in the field of clinical pastoral training, awarding him with the Helen Flanders Dunbar Award in 2005.
This event will take place at the Loyola Retreat Center in Morristown, NJ. Registration is open for everyone - non-members of CPSP are welcome to join us for this special event. The deadline for registration is October 25 and we're anticipating a big turnout for this event.
