Counselling Muslims @StStephensCollege

CM Stephens

Counseling Muslims is a professional seminar that seeks to help attendees develop competencies in the counsel and care of Muslim clients through guided lessons and case studies. Attendees will receive instruction in the most highly-recommended approaches for the care of Muslim clients based on trends within the professional literature and the experiences of the instructor.

In addition to practical skills, attendees will also receive an overview of the Islamic faith together with details about the history of Muslims in Edmonton and demographics. Moreover, the instructor will provide Islamic cultural and religious perspectives on mental health, counselling, and well-being.

Although this workshop is focused specifically on the care of Muslim clients, the competencies developed will better enable participants to work within any multi-cultural and multi-faith setting.

Windows to Islam @ St. Stephen’s College

This year, I am proud to offer Windows to Islam in coordination with St. Stephen’s College (on the University of Alberta campus).

W2I

Nov. 10th & 17th

10:00 am – 3:00pm

Windows to Islam provides an overview of Islam’s rich historical and religious tradition with an emphasis upon how history, contemporary issues, and the Islamic religious sciences (‘ulum al-din) contribute to the religious identity and practice of Muslims today.

This course is ideally aimed at providing counselors, chaplains, clergy, educators, and community members with the essential aspects of Islam and Muslims that will better enable them to engage with and serve Muslims in our increasingly multi-faith and multi-cultural context.

People of all faith, or no faith, are encouraged to attend.

Attendees may apply for 10 CEU credits for this workshop with the Canadian Counselling and Psychotherapy Association.

Following this class, I will be offering another workshop called Counselling Muslims together with Ubah Mohammoud (MPS) in February 2019.  Attendees who apply for both will save $50 off their total tuition.
