Abstract: This module fulfills the Council on Social Work Education’s (2008) fourth core competency, which directs social workers to “engage diversity and difference in practice” (p. 3). After completion of this module, students will: (a) be able to identify the core tenets of the Muslim faith, (b) be able to discuss the contemporary issues faced by Muslims living in the United States, (c) aim to incorporate spirituality and religion into assessments with Muslim clients as demonstrated through a role-play exercise, and (d) strive to provide culturally competent treatment plans for Muslim clients as demonstrated through a role-play exercise.
