Collection Overview
Table of contents What's This?
The national ACPE was formed in 1967 from the merger of several oaragnzations. It promotes and provides clinical training within hospitals and prisons as a complement to theological education and ministry formation. A major figure in the formation of the ACPE was Anton T. Boisen. The Pacific Region is one of nine regions. The Pacific Region provides training in pastoral counseling and chaplaincy for ministerial students throughout the western United States.
Although official formation of the Pacific Region occurred in 1967, its roots are found in clinical ministry education initiatives of the 1920's by pioneers William Keller in Cincinnati, Richard C. Cabot in Boston, and Anton T. Boisen in Worcester, Massachusetts.
