Please note: October 27th “Supporting Your Muslim Clients” was rescheduled to November 7th.
This workshop aims to provide frontline workers, counsellors, chaplains, and other care providers with the essential knowledge of Islam and Muslims that will better enable them to provide culturally sensitive care to diverse Muslims. Areas of discussion will include an overview of Islam and Muslims with an emphasis on Edmonton’s Muslim demographics and contemporary issues affecting the community.
- Gain a better understanding of Islamic cultures and values
- Learn about Muslim demographics and current social issues in Edmonton
- Learn about the most highly-recommended approaches for the care of Muslim clients through instructor’s first-hand experience and published research
- Develop cultural competencies through guided lessons, cases studies, and group discussions
Although the seminar is specifically focused on the care of Muslim clients, the competencies developed through the course will also better enable the attendee to work within any multi-cultural and multi-faith setting.
*Light morning refreshments, coffee/tea included.
