Abstract
This Demonstration Project tries to focus on the problem of a one-sided intellectual emphasis in the theological education of West Germany by conducting a course of Clinical Pastoral education for interns. The Demonstration. Project focused on designing and conducting a six-week program of Clinical Pastoral Education for eight interns in Schleswig Holstein in West Germany. Another aspect of the task was to reflect on the results of the program in the context of theological education in Germany and to see if a CPE program could offer one possible solution to the problem of a one-sided intellectual emphasis in German theological education. This reflection led necessarily to a comparison of Clinical Pastoral Education in the U.S.A. and in Germany and to the question of what could be anticipated in making Clinical Pastoral Education a more vital part of the overall theological educational system in Germany. One of the assumptions of the project was that Clinical Pastoral Education normally occurs too late in the educational process of the person who is becoming a theologian. Therefore, it was intended to run an initial program for interns rather than to run a program of continuing education for pastors. It was the first program of its kind in the context of intern education in Schleswig Holstein.
