Description

Founded with the tenet, "Muslim women for all women" the Texas Muslim Women's Foundation has evolved into a robust continuum of care for survivors of domestic abuse. While the culturally sensitive services offered by the foundation align with the principles of Islam, embracing peace in the home and condemning violence, they are available to women from all cultures. Heena Khan, LPC-S, RPT, the foundation's Director of Clinical & Counseling Services and the founder of Uplift Counseling Services joins the conversation to detail best practices in prevention and intervention for survivors, specifically those who are Muslim. In doing so, Ms. Khan addresses the importance of approaching survivors with cultural humility, curiosity and compassion to yield positive outcomes for women, how to overcome barriers to service and provide individualized care, how to incorporate self-care for teams who work directly with victims of abuse and violence, and the wide array of services available to women escaping domestic abuse that ranges from housing to somatic movement therapy to refugee services. Packed with evidence-based knowledge and tactical solutions, this episode is a must-listen for anyone who serves survivors, needs more information about services available to Muslim women, and those considering a career in the anti-violence movement.
