The Effects of September 11 on Muslim Families in California: A Qualitative Study

By Ian Chand, PhD, Sandy Moghadam, M.S., Mark Morton, M.S., and Scott Johnson, M.S.

April 2004


This study examines the impact of September 11 on Muslim families in Southern California. The researchers employed a grounded-theory influenced qualitative analysis to a series of open-ended question presented to120 Muslim participants. The findings reflect the immediate emotions experienced directly after the terrorist attacks, opinions regarding the longer-term impact on a range of age groups, as well as suggestions about what should be done in response. Suggestions are presented regarding how these findings may be helpful to marriage and family therapists when meeting with Islamic families.
