Scope and Content Note

The records of conferences in Series IV include proceedings, correspondence, papers, addresses, and reports. The pre-1967 records are primarily those of the Council for Clinical Training; Institute of Pastoral Care conferences are documented only from 1959 through the jointly sponsored conferences held just prior to the formation of the ACPE. The pre-1967 records contain material concerned with preparatory arrangements for conferences as well as with the conferences themselves. The ACPE established Annual Conference Committees to prepare for conferences, so for 1969 and following years preparatory materials are among the Committee Records of Series II and this series contains only proceedings and records of activities held at the conferences. Later conferences were thematic in design (e.g., in 1966, “The Pastoral Supervisor and His Identity”) and attracted papers and addresses centered on these themes. Records of the 1975 Conference which commemorated the 50th anniversary of CPE in the United States will be of particular interest to researchers of CPE history. Records of conferences of which the CCT or ACPE were participants but not sole sponsors can be found in Series VIII, Related Organizations.
