Islam is one of the fastest growing religions in the United States, yet it is largely misunderstood. The Muslim identity can impact every aspect of an individual’s life and as a clinician it is important to understand the fundamentals within the religions and its culture, but also confront any bias in the therapeutic relationship.
In this presentation clinicians will become familiar with the basics of Islamic cultural and religious influences, enhance their cultural awareness with regard to both themselves and their clients, examine areas of discomfort in addressing various cultural issues and practices, and witness the harmful therapeutic consequences that can ensue if cultural influences are ignored.
