Abdallah Rothman was recently invited by Professor Malik Badri to speak to his students at Zaim University in Istanbul, Turkey. He was asked to speak on the topic "Why Islamize Psychology?". Abdallah explains how making psychotherapy more user friendly for Muslim clients by changing the use of terms and cultural or religious references is helpful, but that this approach may not be making the most of the resources at our disposal within the Islamic tradition. He therefore proposes a change to the topic question to "Why Psychologize Islam?". View the video of the talk with Abdallah Rothman and Malik Badri:
