ACPE Webinar Series: Advancing Chaplaincy – Learning to Think & Act Strategically

ACPE Academy hosted 3 hour-long webinars in Winter-Spring 2017 to help leaders and emerging leaders in professional chaplaincy and chaplaincy education develop and strengthen their ability to think strategically about advancing chaplaincy both at the level of the profession and at the level of their institution. For videos and handouts from the presentations, visit ACPE Academy. We also posted information on our Strategic Planning Webinars.


We will announce when the following webinar will be scheduled:


Emerging Trends in Healthcare, Patient Experience and Implications for Spiritual Care: A Conversation with Jim Merlino, MD

Fall 2017 & Spring 2018

Free On-Line Course for Professional Chaplains

All members of the following professional chaplaincy organizations (Neshama—the Association for Jewish Chaplains, the National Association for Catholic Chaplains, the Association for Clinical Pastoral Education, and the Association for Professional Chaplains) are invited to participate in a free online course titled Religion, Spirituality, and Health: An Introduction to Research that will be offered at no cost through Virginia Commonwealth University.


The course will be offered four times. The dates are set for the first two offerings:

Session 1:          Fall, 2017             September 18 to November 6 – Registration Now Closed – we hit our target!

Interest in Session 1 exceeded our expectations, and we had to close registration. We hope to accommodate a larger group in the future. We will post details about the three upcoming sessions as they become available.


Session 2:          Spring, 2018         January 22 to March 12

Synchronous dates/times for Session 2 will be posted when they become available. We will send an announcement when registration opens for Session 2 (in November 2017).


This course is made possible by matching funds from the four professional chaplaincy associations listed above. Each of these organizations recognizes participation in the online course toward chaplains’ annual required continuing education.
