Abstract

© 2018 Michigan Publishing. All rights reserved. This qualitative study examined frontline service providers' perspectives on Muslim women's experiences of intimate partner violence (IPV). Participants shared their knowledge and practical experiences in working with Muslim women IPV survivors. Themes emerged in discussions with service providers included: Immigration, Collectivist and Authoritarian Culture, Patriarchy, Honour and Shame, and Faith. These findings revealed the multiple cultural elements that mutually intersect and interact within the broader cultural values that drive IPV resources. These results add to the body of research in support of infusing additional cross-cultural training in service providers' education and developing culturally informed interventions.
