Effective Tools for Improvements in the Dynamics of Client-Therapy Engagement

Selena Coleman is a Faith-based Therapist and an ordained Chaplain, with two units of Clinical Pastoral Education (CPE). Dr. Selena Coleman graduated from Jacksonville Theological Seminary (Jacksonville, Florida) with a Doctorate in Divinity; and licensed as a Clinical Christian Counselor & Therapist by The Board of Examiners for Georgia Christian Counselors & Therapists. She is credentialed as a volunteer Chaplain for two local county Sheriff's Department, visiting incarcerated men, women, and staff members. Participating as an outreach Minister, Dr. Selena discovered deeply rooted psychological ailments hidden within temperaments and personality traits; and determined her Talk Therapy methodologies required more research and case studies.

 

While seeking a Residency Internship to complete her application process for the Association of Professional Chaplains, Dr. Selena learned her Seminary Degree was an Independent Accreditation and she should return to Academia of a SACS (Southern Association of College and Schools) accredited university for consideration. Thus, applying to both Spelman College and Beulah Heights University in Atlanta, Georgia. After consulting with a peer scholar at the Interdenominational Theological Center (ITC), Dr. Selena matriculated into Beulah Heights University, where she is pursuing her Ph.D. in Global Chaplaincy, which is a combination of Religious and Leadership Studies.
