Clinical Pastoral Education (CPE) can be a life transforming experience for students, but does it also transform students' primary relationships? An online survey of past CPE students at Royal Perth Hospital, Western Australia, found that--overall--CPE had a positive effect on primary relations in key areas, in particular communication, intimacy and spirituality. Recent relationships were more negatively affected. Some relationships did not survive CPE. Structural and pedagogical implications require further research.
