Family Therapy with Muslims

Manijeh Daneshpour

Paperback

Family Therapy with Muslims is the first guide for mental health professionals who work with Muslims in the family therapy setting. The book opens with a section defining the similarities across Muslim cultures, the effects of post colonialism on Muslims, and typical Muslim family dynamics. The author then devotes a chapter to different models of family therapy and how they can specifically be applied to working with Muslim families. Case studies through the book involve families of many different backgrounds living in the West - including both immigrant and second-generation families - and will give professionals concrete tools to work with clients of their own.
