The purpose of this seminar is to present the history and current manifestation of Islamophobia to social workers, and how the trauma that creates harms both Muslim and non-Muslim populations. The imagery of Muslim women and the misconceptions regarding the practice of hijab (veil), using the speaker's thesis research, which was published by the NASW in their Social Work journal, will be specifically presented. The discussion will then move to how these biases are manifested in clinical encounters and poor public policy, further deepening social discord and negative perceptions of Muslims. Lastly, suggestions fordismantling Islamophobia will be provided including recognizing personal bias, ideas for culturally competent care, and how to incorporate social justice in education and policy.
