Continuing Education

Excellence in pastoral psychotherapy is not just an ACPP standard—it’s a commitment. As an esteemed member of our community, we understand the importance of staying abreast of the latest developments in the field. To ensure that our Diplomates remain at the forefront of the field, we have instituted a Continuing Education Unit (CEU) requirement.

CEU Requirement Overview

  • Annual Requirement: ACPP Diplomates are required to complete 10 CEUs per calendar year.
  • Diverse Learning Opportunities: We encourage Diplomates to engage in a variety of learning experiences, including workshops, conferences, seminars, and online courses. This flexibility allows our members to tailor their education to their unique interests and professional goals.
  • Relevance to Pastoral Psychotherapy: CEUs should be relevant to the practice of pastoral psychotherapy, covering areas such as counseling techniques, ethical considerations, cultural competence, and the integration of spirituality in therapy.
