Say the Word Islam: School Counselors and Muslim Children
Saleem, Daa'iyah; Rasheed, Sakinah
Georgia School Counselors Association Journal, v17 n1 p34-38 2010
Two Muslim women who hold Ph.D.'s, a clinical and developmental psychologist and a teacher educator speak personally and professionally about important information school counselors need to know about Islam and providing services to Muslim children. First, the authors draw from personal experiences in parenting Muslim children who have come of age in public schools. Second, the authors' collective years of professional interviewing, counseling, and teaching facilitate analysis and unpacking of half-truths and untruths circulating about Islam and Muslims in the public forum today. They provide accurate facts about Islam and most importantly, address the damaging impact to the self esteem and identity formation of Muslim children and young adults who develop their sense of self in today's post 9-11 anti-Islam climate.
