Islamic Institute of Toronto: Family therapy - an Islamic approach
Workshops, seminars, etc.
With Nazila Isgandarova & Shaikh Ahmad Kutty
"Family therapy is a separate and distinct discipline practiced very often outside the formal fields of psychiatry and psychology by social workers, family therapists, counselors, chaplains, and others. Family therapy is not just a new way of working with couples and families but rather an entirely different way of understanding human behavior and relationships."
This workshop is designed for mental health and health professionals, community workers, spiritual and religious care leaders, and community members who wish to acquire practical and theoretical training in family therapy.
Sunday, April 18
2:00 pm - 8:00 pm
$30/person if registered before April 10; $40 afterwards
