Announcing the addition of Revs. Bass-Riley and Davis to the Commission for the Accreditation of Pastoral Psychotherapy Training (CAPPT) Board of Trustees
Rev. Davis serves as the Director of Field Education and Administration Faculty at Princeton Theological Seminary. She has made significant contributions to the field of practical theology and clinical training, serving as Chaplain and Director of the Religious Ministries at the University Medical Center at Princeton for twenty years, and also serving as a nursing home and prison chaplain. She joins the board as a community member.
Rev. Bass-Riley is the Training Director at Pittsburgh Pastoral Institute in Pittsburgh, PA. In this role, he oversees training and supervision of graduate psychotherapy interns and postgraduate fellows and also supervises the Clinical Pastoral Education (CPE) program. In addition to these responsibilities, he carries a clinical caseload of psychotherapy clients. He is ordained by the Progressive Christian Alliance.
"The election of the Reverends Davis and Bass-Riley to the CAPPT Board marks two significant additions to an already impressive group of educators and and program administrators," stated Brian H. Childs, Chair of the CAPPT Board of Trustees. "Ms. Davis brings years of seminary field work education at Princeton and also her work prior to going to Princeton as a hospital chaplain. Mr Bass-Riley is a seasoned supervisor of Clinical Pastoral Education/Training and a well known and respected leader in the field. The programs that CAPPT review for accreditation and those they serve will be the beneficiaries of the addition of these two good people."
