Workshop 7 (ticket)
Faith Matters: Care of the Muslim Child

There is little child and adolescent psychiatry literature regarding Muslims, while there are nearly 7 million Muslims living in the United States. This Workshop discusses the Islamic tradition as it is related to child and adolescent mental health, including the influences on the prevalence and presentation pattern of child mental health disorders in this population. The unique characteristics of African American, Middle Eastern, and South Asian Muslims is discussed. Participants learn how the religious and cultural context influences the clinical presentation and mode of seeking help; learn how to utilize management and treatment interventions contextually based and rooted in the Islamic tradition; and gain a better appreciation of identity issues that may arise in a Muslim child in the post 9-11 United States. Through role-play, media clips, and reflective questions, participants learn to better understand the complexities of treating the Muslim child.
