"Working with Muslim Americans as a Clinical Social Worker"
with Iman Jodeh, MPA, Director and Co-Founder of Meet the Middle East
September 18, 2019, 7:00 PM to 9:00 PM
Summary: As it stands today, Islam is the most misunderstood and misrepresented religion in the world. However, many are unaware of the 1.3 billion people that find peace in Islam. But what happens when these two worlds meet and service providers are needed in Muslim American communities? How do we insure that our clinicians are culturally sensitive to the fastest growing religion in the world? Iman Jodeh, a practicing Muslim American, will explore different paths to achieving this successfully.
1. Brief Introduction to Islam
2. Cultural Competency Working with Muslims
3. Cultural Sensitivities Working with Muslim in a Clinical Setting
