Publication: Enhancing Culturally Integrative Family Safety Response in Muslim Communities

By: Mohammed Baobaid, Lynda M. Ashbourne


This informative new volume presents the Culturally Integrative Family Safety Response (CIFSR) model that is currently being used by the Muslim Resource Centre for Social Support and Integration (MRCSSI) in London, Ontario. Created to support immigrant and newcomer families from collectivist backgrounds struggling with issues related to pre-migration trauma, family violence, and child protection concerns, the CIFSR model focuses on early risk-identification and intervention methods, preserving safety, and appropriate conflict responses to conflict. Also included is a Q&A chapter from the authors that invites helping professionals, educators, and other readers to apply the model globally.
