SPTI in association with the Institute of Pastoral Counselling & Supervision

Now recruiting for 2021/2022.

SPTI continues to offer Pastoral Supervision training in association with the Institute of Pastoral Counselling & Supervision. This programme is targeted at the Clergy, Pastoral Care Team Leaders, Lay Ministers, Pastoral Counsellors, Chaplains and Spiritual Directors to develop understanding and skills in reflective practice in pastoral and ministerial settings. The current emphasis upon Ministerial Development means that the church needs practitioners with supervisory skills to facilitate creative reflection on the priorities and tasks of ministry.

Within a widening variety of settings, chaplains have an important role to play in fostering skills of reflective practice – particularly in relation to spiritual care – within multi-disciplinary teams. In addition, spiritual direction is increasingly seen as a life-giving ministry to the whole church and spiritual directors also need opportunities to reflect on their practice and receive supervision for their work.

The Professional Certificate in Pastoral Supervision has been developed to address this cluster of training needs. It is a substantial course, which draws on both theological and psychological understandings of the mission and ministry of lay and ordained Christians in a variety of settings.
