We all suffer emotional set-backs, we all sustain emotional wounds in our own unique situations, we encounter different emotions throughout our day. Despair, anger, fear, loss, sadness, loneliness, failure, helplessness, guilt, anxiety, rejection, and loss are some of the emotions we encounter at various points in our lives. Similarly we all sustain physical injuries such as cuts, burns and broken bones, but while we know how to bandage a cut, put ointment on a burn, and go to the ER for a broken arm, what do we do when we sustain an emotional injury? Unfortunately, not much. However, alhamdulillah, there are ways to treat emotional injuries.

Using the Quran, authentic narrators from our beloved Prophet (ﷺ), and the latest scientific research, Ustadha Dunia offers practical treatments that you can administer to yourself that are quick, simple, and effective. Inspired by Dr. Winch’s work, Emotional First Aid is an essential workshop for anyone looking to let go of negative emotions, build their self-esteem, become more resilient, and to let go of the hurts and hang-ups that are holding them back.

Ustadha Dunia Shuaib holds a Masters of Science degree in counseling. She completed Suffa Islamic Seminary and is currently working towards a doctorate in Islamic Studies with Dr. Omar Shahin at the Graduate Theological Foundation. She has also received ijazah in the recitation of the Qur’an from Imam Zia Sheikh, PhD.
