        ORIGINAL MEETING INFORMATION:

        “Cultural Competency Starts at Intake” by Jenna Burton, LMHC

        March 20,2020

        There is a vast need for a multi-culturally aware approach to psychotherapy
        and it starts with a culturally competent intake and assessment.  This
        training will define cultural competence, cultural humility, offer more
        culturally aware questions to ask on your intake forms, and provide tools to
        use during your initial session to address cultural and socially based
        trauma. 


        Learning Objectives:

        1.  Define Cultural Competence and Cultural Humility.

        2.  Provide practical learning experiences for skill development in completing culturally competent intakes and assessments.

        3.  Develop an action plan towards becoming more culturally competent when completing intakes and assessments.

        Jenna Burton, LMHC is a Licensed Mental Health Counselor with over 20 years of experience the counseling field helping individuals and families identify their strengths and resolve their challenges through the therapeutic process.  She holds a Masters Degree in Mental Health and School Guidance Counseling from Rollins College; and currently has a private practice, 'Mindful Hearts Institute' in Maitland, Florida. Jenna is a Certified EMDR therapist, an EMDRIA Approved Consultant and a HAP facilitator.  She specializes in Trauma based Psychosis and Schizophrenia, complex trauma and PTSD, Dissociation, and adoption and attachment issues. Jenna recently hosted a 10 month Cultural Competency group featuring the book, Cultural Competence and Healing Cultural Based Trauma with EMDR Therapy. She is currently preparing on a workshop for EMDRIA 2020: Conference Social Drift and the LGBTQ+ community and hopes to be able to present this to you here next year.

        Jenna's vision is to see individuals and families communicate, connect, and become their best selves.  Her approach recognizes how the brain and body are interconnected and that healthy relationships and resolving past traumas are the key to reaching more of our own potential, impacting the people around us in a more constructive way, thus creating healthier families, healthier workplaces, and a healthier world.
