Course Description

Level 1

This is a 5-day intensive on Traditional Islamically Integrated Psychotherapy (TIIP) Level 1. The training will provide students of psychology and mental health with an orientation to the foundational tenets &  principles of the model including a discussion of Islamic epistemology, i.e., a framework for reconciling disparate sources of knowledge (i.e. empirical, rational, and scriptural) within an Islamic context.  The core principles of the model will be presented that include a review of holistic schemas of health and pathology, nature of the human being, composition of the human psyche, principles of change, and role of the TIIP practitioner. 

Students will engage with practical applications of this model through two types of techniques:

  • Inherently Islamic approaches of psychotherapy. Inspired by the Qur’an, Prophetic Tradition, and the traditions of the scholars of the spiritual sciences (taziyah al-nafs). 

  • Adaptation and integration of mainstream interventions.  Methods drawn from contemporary orientations that are consistent with the foundational principles of TIIP. 

The course will also teach students to conceptualize and treat psychological dysfunction using this Islamic model.  

Interventions are designed to specifically target the elements of the TIIP ontological framework of the human psyche: 

  • ʿAql - cognition

  • Nafs - behavioral inclinations

  • Rūh - spirit 

  • Ihsās - emotions.
