Professional Development

Spiritual Health Association supports the ongoing professional development of spiritual care practitioners from a diverse range of backgrounds.

A monthly Professional Development Program (PD Program) is provided in partnership with Spiritual Care Australia Victoria (SCA Vic) - the professional association for the sector, and the Association for Supervised Clinical Pastoral Education in Victoria Incorporated (ASACPEV). The program is held on the second Wednesday each month from March to November with a break in July.


In the light of the COVID 19 developments we are making changes in the way we are presenting this program. The monthly Professional Development program will be offered via Zoom for the rest of this year. It is held on the second Wednesday each month (not in December) and runs from 9.30am-11.30am.

There will be some changes to the program of speakers for the year as we move forward, and the on-line program will be updated as we go. Click here   to download the 2020 Program as at 1 July 2020.

Each month, all who have registered online to attend that month, will receive a more detailed program and the link for joining the meeting a few days before the event.

Usually, specific details about each month’s program will be provided in our eNews. If you haven’t registered for our eNews listing go to   and scroll down to the bottom to "Stay up to date".

We have decided to offer this program free to all. To be part of the sessions you need to register below for each/all sessions as this will help us to manage the zoom meeting and to send links for each meeting to those who have registered.
