New Pilot Hybrid Field Education – Clinical Pastoral Education Program
In the fall of 2014, we are piloting a hybrid Field Education – Clinical Pastoral Education (FE-CPE) program in collaboration with the Jewish Theological Seminary’s Center for Pastoral Education. Eight students currently enrolled to take FE 103-104 will be selected to do the FE-CPE program. At the successful completion of the program, they will receive both 6 Field education credits and one unit of CPE. The selected students will do their clinical hours in their selected field sites. This program will broaden the context of CPE (usually in healthcare settings) into the community. The supervisor, Rev. A. Meigs Ross, BCC, LCSW (and a Union alumna, M.Div.1983) is a certified pastoral educator with the Association for Clinical Pastoral Education and a psychotherapist in private practice. She is working with Dr. Su Yon Pak closely to shape the curriculum.
This program will allow students to have at least one-unit of CPE without doing a summer intensive. It is our hope that students will continue on to do a summer intensive unit in a healthcare setting.
This is an exciting new program in collaboration with JTSA. For any questions, please feel free to contact Dr. Su Yon Pak at firstname.lastname@example.org.
