The goal of the training, which is web‐based, is to build the knowledge and skills of advocates to effectively serve Muslim victims of domestic violence. Training content will include discussion of culture and community, legal remedies for immigrant victims, as well as practical skills for service providers to assess the services and barriers for Muslim victims. By the end of the training, service providers will have a better understanding of the diversity within the Muslim community. This training will also address common misconceptions about Islam and Islamic law as it relates to domestic violence— understanding these nuanced issues will help service providers provide appropriate and meaningful service to their diverse clients.
