Clinical Pastoral Education Centre

Online Clinical Pastoral Care Education Program

14 September 2020 – 29 March 2021

The Banyule Network Clinical Pastoral Education Centre is offering an innovative and fully accredited part-time program in 2020.

This program is designed for ordained Ministers or Chaplains in placement and will be offered completely online, allowing applicants to continue in their ministry while receiving the peer and supervisory feedback that is necessary for continuing professional development.

It will be of interest to Ministers who:

  • are unable to return to worship in person
  • find it impossible to travel to a CPE Centre
  • work in remote areas but have access to fast broadband
  • are completing courses for a postgraduate degree

What does this Clinical Pastoral Education Unit Offer?

This CPE unit will focus on four areas of actual pastoral responsibility: –

  • pastoral conversation
  • pastoral care via telephone and videoconferencing
  • pastoral preaching, and
  • ministry supervision of volunteers providing pastoral care.

Education Day Components

Education Days are on Mondays and consist of: –

  • Group Meetings, led by the Centre Director and Consultant
  • Pastoral Care Education, provided by the Director and other invited speakers
  • Seminars, where students will present to their peers, and
  • Individual Supervision & Consultation sessions
