Event description

Description

What happens when a qualified Imam and pioneer in community cohesion meets a specialist in the psychology of sexual violence and critical voice in the field of child sexual exploitation? What do they talk about? How do they navigate the complex issues of culture, Islam and child sexual exploitation?

Better yet, how do they work together to debate and discuss the child sexual exploitation in Muslim and South Asian communities? What can frontline professionals learn from this meeting of minds?

Director of Flowhesion Foundation and Imam, Abdul Hafeez Siddique and National Specialist in Forensic Psychology of Sexual Violence, Jessica Eaton - present this tour of unique workshops across the UK in 2018.


Learning outcomes:

  • Able to understand through brief Quranic verses and prophetic tradition that Islam does not condone, fuel or contribute to CSE.

  • Able to confidently explain how components of South-Asian culture i.e. Izzat, Sharam, biradari, Kaum, male patriarchy and tribal ideals can constitute components that may allow CSE to go undetected.

  • Clearly differentiate between Islam and South-Asian culture and how the latter at times contradicts the former.

  • To be able to confidently apply a robust range of instruments such as; a do/don’t list, faith and community leader engagement tool, Islamic perspectives approach to encourage and support ‘buy in’ from South-Asian communities around the CSE agenda

  • To be able to appreciate and explore the specific stigma, taboos and negative experiences that victims/ whistleblowers face from the South-Asian community on the CSE agenda.

  • To be able to confidently navigate gatekeepers and power brokers within the South-Asian community in order to ensure that CSE information and awareness reaches to the grassroots of this diaspora.

  • To explore the evidence and experiences of victim blaming and professional responses to child sexual exploitation in South-Asian communities

  • To understand behaviours and trauma responses in children and families affected by child sexual exploitation

  • To discuss the offending behaviours of South-Asian men involved in child sexual exploitation
