About the Event:

As a step towards increasing cultural competency, this presentation focuses on one of the most diverse faith populations in the US,and the world's fastest growing religious group (Pew).  Participants will gain tools and resources to provide more effective treatment to Muslim clients and their families.  Attention will be given to the intersection of culture and religion, and the ways in which these respective values may be used as a resource in the therapeutic process. The presentation will also consider the ways in which mental health issues are viewed and dealt with, and some best practices when working with Muslim families. The impact of current geo-political issues on Muslim individuals and communities will also be discussed as it relates to mental health and treatment.
