Advancing Spiritual Care Through Research

VCU celebrating and advancing CPE

Russell Davis, who is an ACPE Certified Educator, professor of patient counseling, and director of pastoral care at VCUHS notes the University’s promotion of CPE this spring:


We celebrated in April the 75th anniversary of chaplaincy here and the 60th anniversary of CPE.  As part of the celebration we published the history of our department:  A Call to Service:  The Department of Patient Counseling, Virginia Commonwealth University, 1943-2013 by Michael J. Kurtz, PhD.
Greg Prince, EdD  [Director of Development, VCU College of Health Professions] and I presented a workshop at the annual meeting of the Association for Clinical Pastoral Education in Atlanta in May.  The title of the workshop was “Philanthropy and the Future of CPE.”
Thanks to Russell Davis and VCU for their work in promoting and advancing CPE!
