Developing a Model of Islamic Psychology and Psychotherapy (Routledge Research in Psychology) 1st Edition
by Abdallah Rothman (Author)
At a time when there is increasing need to offer psychotherapeutic approaches that accommodate clients’ religious and spiritual beliefs, and acknowledge the potential for
healing and growth offered by religious frameworks, this book explores psychology from an Islamic paradigm and demonstrates how Islamic understandings of human nature, the
self, and the soul can inform an Islamic psychotherapy.
Drawing on a qualitative, grounded theory analysis of interviews with Islamic scholars and clinicians, this unique volume distils complex religious concepts to reconcile
Islamic theology with contemporary notions of psychology. Chapters offer nuanced explanations of relevant Islamic tradition and theological sources, consider how this
relates to Western notions of psychotherapy and common misconceptions, and draw uniquely on first-hand data to develop a new theory of Islamic psychology. This, in turn,
informs an innovative and empirically driven model of practice that translates Islamic understandings of human psychology into a clinical framework for Islamic
An outstanding scholarly contribution to the modern and emerging discipline of Islamic psychology, this book makes a pioneering contribution to the integration of the
Islamic sciences and clinical mental health practice. It will be a key resource for scholars, researchers, and practicing clinicians with an interest in Islamic psychology
and Muslim mental health, as well as religion, spirituality and psychology more broadly.
