CPE Training Seminars

CPE Training Seminars

In the Extended CPE Units offered at Conway Medical Center, the typical program includes a combination of the following:

Clinical Visitation, Reading and Writing

Each trainee will be responsible for completing 300 hours of clinical visitation (8 hours per week) at a clinical site determined in consultation with the supervisor. The clinical visitation time will become the source for case study presentations.

Case Seminars

This provides opportunities for reviewing and critiquing case reports of actual pastoral visits.

Interpersonal Relations

This peer group learning experience has a dual focus. First, it provides opportunities for students to explore various personal and professional issues that may arise during their ministry. It also allows an experiential study of group formation and development, utilizing the group experience itself as an educational tool.

Didactic Presentations

Lectures and presentations are provided for the group’s learning. The CPE supervisor and inter-disciplinary professionals present information on pastoral, ethical and health care concerns.

Individual Supervision

Students meet one-on-one with the supervisor to review pastoral work, reflect on personal and professional growth and evaluate progress toward individual learning goals which are established at the beginning of each unit

Action Reflection in a Group Learning Process

This model of learning is central to the CPE experience. Chaplain interns are dynamically involved in direct patient care. It is that experience – along with the reflection on the actual pastoral encounter – that fosters the chaplain’s learning. Chaplains routinely provide care for people from diverse religious and cultural backgrounds. Functioning as ecumenical chaplains, trainees are responsible for providing pastoral care to this variety of patients, families and staff. By attending interdisciplinary meetings and participating with other professionals in providing patient care, interns develop and hone emerging skills in pastoral care. Through sharing on-call responsibilities, Interns gain both real-time experience and confidence in the midst of developing health care crises.

Key concepts include:

    • Learning from experience, both personal and professional, through case study, reflection, peer feedback, and the supervisory encounter in such a way as to shape future action.
    • Working with a peer group, to be held accountable and to hold others accountable, for personal and professional development.
    • Gaining awareness as a pastoral care giver while developing pastoral identity and authority.
