The College of Pastoral Supervision and Psychotherapy (CPSP) certifies this post-graduate, community/parish based educational track for parish pastors, clinical and institutional chaplains and pastoral counselors committed to qualified pastoral counseling.
CPSP is a theologically-based community offering accreditation and certification to individuals and programs that meet standards of expertise in clinical chaplaincy, as well as pastoral counseling. CPSP has affiliate membership with the Association of Theological Schools and is a full member of the Coalition on Ministry in Specialized Settings (COMISS)
A unit of study and training requires 400 hours of hands-on ministry, which includes group and individual sessions where reflection and feedback on the work is received in a peer group. Pastors, chaplains and lay persons interested in applying for this program of study should contact this office as soon as possible. The schedules and the length of the accredited units vary.
A pre-admission interview must preceed admission to the program.
