University of Southern California

February 9, 2018 - Feb 11, 2018

This is a working conference addressing the problem of not having a clearly agreed upon definition of an Islamic Psychology and how to utilize this concept to treat community members as individuals, couples and families, the CMMHIP is bringing together Islamic scholars and mental health professionals who treat Muslim clients to discuss how Islam views the core components that make up a psychological perspective from the theory of mind to the junoon, to how Islam views individuals, couples and families to arrive at an attempt to define an Islamic Psychology and ways of implementing it for treatment. This is a two-and-a-half-day conference to begin this much-needed work. Each session will consist of two Islamic scholars and a mental health discussant who has a caseload of 50% Muslim clients or more. This is a working conference so the aim is to work not focus on presenting papers. Writings will be produced after the conference.
