Clinical Pastoral Education (CPE) is professional education for people engaged in spiritual and pastoral care or ministry.
It encourages students to develop pastoral identity, theological reflection, counselling and leadership skills. A distinctive feature of CPE is practical experience under group and individual supervision. Basic, advanced and part-time courses are offered by UnitingSA’s Clinical Pastoral Education Centre, with instruction by experienced and qualified supervisors.
UnitingSA Minister, Rev Dr Leslie Underwood, serves as our CPE Centre Director and runs courses throughout the year.
