    The Foundation for ACPE wants to hear from you!

    Mar 19, 2021

    Promoting innovation is a core function of the Foundation for ACPE. We keep our eyes on the future of the profession of spiritual care providers, educators, and spiritually integrated psychotherapists. Recent trends show that the degree with which ACPE Educators will retire in the next 10 years is not matched by newly certified ACPE educators entering the job market.

    Nov 20, 2020

    It seems like a decade ago since I assumed the role of 2020 annual campaign chair. The emotional stress, physical setbacks, social/political unrest and spiritual demands bought about in 2020 has made this year go down in history as unprecedented. Indeed, our lives have changed forever.

    Congratulations to the 2020 cohort of the ACPE Boisen Scholars! Thanks to the generous support of our donors to the Foundation for ACPE, six exceptional students were selected as part of the second cohort of Boisen Scholars. This program supports professional development opportunities for all ACPE students, including Level I and Level II, Psychotherapy Student Members, Chaplain Residents and Certified Educator Candidates. Although this year’s cohort was not able to attend the 20/20 Joint Conference due to the Covid-19 pandemic, we are still exploring opportunities for the selected Boisen Scholars to receive professional development support.
