The McMan Conference has been specifically designed to give perspective and provide tools to those working in the human services field and is geared toward:
- Direct Service Staff
- Families and Caregivers
On Tuesday, Oct 29, I will be presenting my workshop:
“Supporting Your Muslim Clients.”
This workshop aims to provide front line workers, counselors, 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.
- 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 and cases studies.
This session has been generously sponsored by REACH Edmonton.
