Book description

With an increasing number of Muslims living in the West, and studies suggesting that mental illness may be more prevalent and chronic amongst Muslim cultural groups, there is a pressing need for appropriate treatment options. This book provides mental health professionals with a practical guide to delivering culturally adapted therapy to Muslim immigrants, refugees, and those with a Muslim religious or cultural background. It takes into account the religious, spiritual, social and cultural dimensions of individuals, framing elements such as mindfulness, emotion regulation and sleep problems within well-known Islamic terms and concepts. The book covers issues such as prominent somatic symptoms, multiple comorbidities, low education, ongoing life difficulties and mental health stigma. As Multiplex Therapy is transdiagnostic, targeting anxiety and mood disorders, the treatment is applicable to a large proportion of patients. Each chapter guides the reader through therapy sessions, giving clinicians an invaluable everyday manual for delivering treatment.


‘The volume includes several appendixes meant to be shared with clients: a stretching handout, one for relaxation with visualization, and protocols for anxiety/depression, emotional regulation, and anger management. This treatment manual for addressing clients who identify with Islamic tradition is an invaluable tool for practitioners who need to expand their skills for working with this growing client population. The book is so well done that it will be useful for practitioners wishing to sharpen their skills in multiplex CBT for working with any unique population, as well as for researchers, faculty and graduate students.’
