Theme: Out of the Shackles: Pursuit of Civil Justice in the Face of Psychological Trauma

The number of hate crimes, bullying, and microaggressions American Muslims experience is drawing increasing attention. Scholarly research on the subject began long before the recent political rhetoric and even before 0/11. However, the mechanisms, scale, and impact of the treatment of American Muslims requires more rigorous study and better dissemination. Furthermore, the American Muslim experience is subject to American social and structural realities. The role of race, violence, policing, surveillance, educational policy, mental health care access and reform, immigration policy, and civil liberties in the U.S. all impact the American Muslim experience. Interventions, whether at a clinical, programmatic, or policy level have not been well described. This conference seeks scholars who will offer an analysis as well as intervention for American Muslims' challenges.

This unique conference brings together faith leaders, health care providers, and researchers to examine topics related to mental health across the American Muslim community.  It will include keynote speakers, scholarly research presentations, and panel discussions.

In addition to the conference panels, there will also be a Faith & Community Leader Mental Health First Responder training on Thursday, March 16 only. More details on this training can be found here.

Fees for the conference are: $250 for Professionals; $75 for students; $100 for Faith & Community Leader Training (Thursday only)

***Please register by October 1, 2017, as prices will increase after that date to $300 for professionals and $100 for students.
