Former student recommends CPE:
Clinical Pastoral Education (CPE) has helped me professionally to deal with systemic issues in the church such as conflict management and triangulation. It has helped me to identify personal emotional triggers and develop the skills to disarm them… Would I highly recommend C.P.E.? Absolutely! It is a must for pastors! My only regret in taking CPE is that I didn't do it sooner as a pastor. Rev. Daniel B. Dellinger, Pastor, First Southern Baptist Church Westminster
