Looking Ahead in 2022
The 2022 ACPE Annual Conference is presented jointly with the Association of Professional Chaplains. We’ve teamed up to offer “Freedom, Wonder, and Liberation: Anti-Bias Practices of Spiritual Care and Education.” I want to thank the conference planners for putting together a powerful tapestry of offerings. The conference speakers bring psychological and theological theories that give grounding for our deepening work as an anti-bias organization. As I’ve done some pre-conference reading from our speakers’ bodies of work, I realized the planning committee has knit together content that helps stretch us in our learning and more deeply integrate what we’ve known.
This Work Matters
Have you seen the call for nominations for awards? As with every year, we want to celebrate our colleagues and recognize those who have been leaders in the movements of clinical pastoral education and spiritually integrated psychotherapy. These awards are a way of celebrating all of us, of making our increasing commitment to appreciative inquiry come alive in the stories and practices of colleagues. It is a way of reminding us who we are and why we do what we do.
2022 Psychotherapy Webinar Series
ACPE’s Psychotherapy Webinar Series brings leaders from the field of psychotherapy to ACPE members and guests. The program content is aimed at psychotherapists but will be of interest and value to educators, chaplains, and CPE students as well. Each webinar is approved for 1.5 hours of NBCC continuing education credit. ACPE provides these webinars free of charge to ACPE members. Non-members are welcome at a cost of $20 per webinar.
ACPE provides the highest quality CPE programs for spiritual care professionals
We have a rigorous accreditation and certification process for centers and educators that provide CPE. The depth of our training enables students to realize their full potential to strengthen the spiritual health of people in their care as well as themselves.
