AAPC Summit in Baltimore

 Notes from the Treasurer

Anthony Terndrup
AAPC Northwest Region Treasurer

From February 22 to February 25, over two dozen representatives from the Board of Directors and the Regions gathered at a retreat center outside Baltimore, MD to discern a path forward for the American Association of Pastoral Counselors.  Paul Shoup and I represented our Northwest Region.

Rev. Dr. Claire W. Bamberg, our newly elected AAPC Vice-President, served as a consultant to facilitate the discernment process.   On Thursday evening, we were presented with a radical call to transform even further our professional organization in order to sustain our beloved community and to steward our precious resources. (read more)

Notes from the Chair

Paul Shoup
AAPC Northwest Region Chair

Saturday Keynote Presentation:


In four primarily lecture-based sessions, we explore what forgiveness is, the latest clinical research on it, the five-step REACH Forgiveness program to help people forgive, and spend most of the time discussing interventions you can use in your practice to promote forgiveness—individual counseling, couple counseling, groups, do-it-yourself workbooks as an adjunct to therapy, and even more systemic interventions with churches and our often contentious society.

Keynote Speaker:  Everett Worthington, Ph.D., is Commonwealth Professor Emeritus working from the Department of Psychology at Virginia Commonwealth University. He continues to be active in research and speaking around the world. He is a licensed Clinical Psychologist in Virginia.
