Islamic Psychology and Mental Health: Working Collaboratively

10th JUNE 2015 LONDON / 12th JUNE MANCHESTER 2015

Clients from Muslim backgrounds are increasingly using Mental Health and Psychological Services in the UK and present with varied explanatory models of mental distress, coping and treatment. Muslims also differ between themselves in terms of their degree of religiosity, particular cultural background and perceived discrimination. It is then important that there is some collaborative understanding on how this complexity impacts on the delivery of effective mental health services.

This conference aims to explore and debate the critical perspectives, themes and concepts that underpin ‘Muslim Psychology' and models of mental health and illness and consider how these might relate to ‘mainstream' psychological and mental health services in the UK.

Who should attend?

This conference will be relevant to all professionals in the field of Mental Health and Social Care, including those from Local Authorities and NHS trusts across the UK, Social Workers, Approved Mental Health Professionals, Psychiatrists, Psychologists, Psychotherapists, Counsellors, Early Intervention Teams, CPN's, OT's, Chaplains, Community Faith Leaders & Healers, Equality Leads, Community Development Workers, Service User Representatives, Charities, Third Sector, Educational Establishments, Academics and Policy makers.
