Topic: Working with Muslim American Client in a Xenophobic America

Presenter: Aja Harrison, MSW, LSW


During this presentation, Ms. Harrison will discuss strategies to address:

·         Preconceived notions about Islam & what a Muslim American is like

·         Multifaceted cultural barriers within the Muslim American population

·         Demonstrate a client centered/ nonjudgmental stance to working with Muslim American clients

·         Understand the dissonances between the presumptions of American cultural & religiously defined expectations


Ms. Harrison holds a Master’s degree in Social Work with a focus in Advanced Generalist Practice as well as a Bachelors in Religious Studies (with concentrations in Islamic Studies, World Religions, and Spirituality).  She has over a decade of experience working in clinical practice with individuals, couples, families, and groups throughout the various life stages.   She collaborates with them to address life’s challenges in the form of interpersonal violence, trauma, grief, loss, advanced illness, end of life priorities, and behavioral addictions, and in both the in-patient and out-patient milieus.  Through personal & professional experience, she also facilitates dialogue between diverse populations on topics such as culture, diversity, tolerance, and acceptance.
