About this course

As part of their role, imams, health, and social care workers are getting more involved in marital counselling. However, few of these workers have professional training in counselling and psychotherapy. Marriage counselling is considered part of the short-term care that Imams, health, and social care workers need to provide. Although the course is designed for the above professionals, it will also be beneficial for Muslims that are considering getting married.

Islamic Marriage Counselling online course provides an exclusive opportunity for practicing psychologists, psychiatrists, therapists, trained counsellors, and anyone interested in developing a fundamental understanding of Marriage Counselling from an Islamic perspective as an add-on qualification.
