CAPPT Accreditation of UAMS Clinical Pastoral
Education Training Program

CPSP Training

On June 10, 2015, the Clinical Pastoral Education Training program at the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences (UAMS) was granted full accreditation by the Commission for Pastoral and Psychotherapy Training (CAPPT). UAMS, under the leadership of CPSP Diplomate in Supervision George Hankins-Hull, is the first College of Pastoral Supervision and Psychotherapy program to receive CAPPT accreditation. CAPPT accreditation is an acknowledgment of the strength and quality of a training program.

CAPPT accreditation is the result of a rigorous audit of a Clinical Pastoral Education Training Center’s CPSP Accreditation process, involving a review of the Training Center’s self-study materials together with the CPSP site team’s report of the site visit. CAPPT seeks to assure that the CPSP Accreditation process is entirely consistent with CPSP Standards of Accreditation, and comparable with ‘best practices and standards’ of cognate accrediting organizations involved in professional training, i.e., the American Association of Marriage and Family Therapists, the Association for Graduate Medical Education, and the Association of Professional Chaplains.

A successful accreditation review designates a training program as educationally and fiscally sound, with clear administrative support for the continued functioning integrity of the training center. CAPPT accreditation assures trainees and potential employers that the training program meets the most rigorous standards of the profession.

A CPSP training center which receives CAPPT Accreditation may indicate on the Training Center’s website that it has achieved this seminal industry designation.

CPSP anticipates that all of its CPE training programs will be submitting their programs to the CAPPT Accreditation process for review.
