Field Guide for Aspiring Chaplains: Online CPE

Image for Field Guide session on online CPEOnline CPE: how can I get units of CPE through a different path?

The Field Guide series offers a basic introduction to the profession of chaplaincy. Each session includes an in-depth conversation with spiritual care practitioners on topics of key importance. We also provide an opportunity for small-group discussion (not recorded).

Rev. Danielle Buhuro (Sankofa CPE) and Angela Epshtein join us for this session. Both are closely involved in their institutions’ chaplaincy degrees and online education. They discuss the benefits of online CPE, how it compares to fully in-person units, and how prospective chaplains can set up their own CPE journeys. There is also public Q&A toward the end of the session.

We offer the Field Guide series at no cost thanks to the generous support of our sponsors Iliff School of Theology, Bayan Islamic Graduate School, Union Theological Seminary, and University of the West. The E. Rhodes and Leona B. Carpenter Foundation generously supports the Lab’s resources on chaplaincy careers.
