Scope and Content Note

The first subseries (Literature) includes more than two hundred folders of published and unpublished articles, papers and reports concerning issues and programs of the clinical pastoral education movement. Many of these were written by individuals active in the ACPE or its antecedent bodies and may be of interest to those researching the development of CPE policies and methodology. Additional reports and papers of this kind can be found among the Committee Records of Series II (e.g., Historical Committee and Research Committee) as well as among the conference records of Series IV. Writings by Anton T. Boisen in this section provide valuable documentation of his thoughts.

The training materials in the second section of this series include examples of training programs, course schedules and requirements, bibliographies, and case studies.

Subseries 3: Periodicals contains records of the ACPE’s Journal of Pastoral Care, which was formerly published jointly by the CCT and IPC. The records include correspondence and minutes of meetings of the Board of Managers and of the Editorial Committee, as well as general correspondence and materials pertaining to special projects undertaken by the Journal. This series also documents a publication entitled Women in CPE which came to life and faded in the 1970s.
