The Many Faces of the College of Pastoral Supervision & Psychotherapy

The Many Faces of the College of Pastoral Supervision & Psychotherapy

The Covenant of the College of Pastoral Supervision and Psychotherapy We, the CPSP members see ourselves as spiritual pilgrims seeking a truly collegial professional community.

The Anton Boisen Book Project

The Boisen Book Project: "The Boisen Books Project will reintroduce Boisen to a new generation in the 21st century. As relevant today as when they were first published, Boisen’s three major books will appear, one-a-year, beginning in Spring 2015, marking the 50th anniversary of his death in 1965."

At this writing we know that CPSP's David Roth, PhD and Robert Charles Powell, MD, PhD were a part of the creation of the Boisen Book Project. The website for the project pays tribute to Dr. Powell: "The new editions will each include a new Introduction by renowned historian of the pastoral care movement and psychiatrist Robert Charles Powell, MD, PhD, as well as a new foreword and afterword."
