Since the events of September 11, 2001, people perceived as being Muslim or of Middle Eastern descent have been the subject of suspicion in the U.S. Many perceive such people as having a connection to or sympathy with terrorism. This has resulted in negative public portrayals in the media, particularly right-wing media, and in acts of discrimination and violence towards those perceived as Middle Eastern. As practitioners who may encounter individuals of Middle Eastern or Muslim backgrounds, it will be helpful to understand the impact of media portrayal and public perception on their mental health.
