We are excited to announce the 3rd CPE Islamic Chaplaincy Course to run in Sydney.

This course is designed to educate and train individuals to serve the Muslim community in Australia. It is an accredited Clinical Pastoral Education (CPE) Unit I of Islamic Chaplaincy in an institutionalised setting. It explores both theoretical and applied aspects of CPE I. It is located at the intersection of Islamic theology of caring, grief and loss. CPE 1 emphasises multidimensional assessments and the different applications of spiritual, therapeutic, supportive, educational and strategic aspects of pastoral care for individuals. Gender, professional identity and professional ethics are also examined. In addition, it reviews the experience of a formal Islamic chaplaincy spiritual care in Australia. It highlights significant aspects of the Islamic theology of chaplaincy in theory and practice. The students will visit Muslim patients in the local hospitals as part of their training or at their work if it is relevant.
